Wellness news: VSP offering supplemental medical eye care in response to COVID-19

May 6, 2020

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pacific employees who are Vision Service Plan (VSP) members will have access to supplemental medical eye care for the detection, treatment and management of ocular and visual conditions during the month of May. Appointments with a VSP network doctor can be made in person or remotely.

Through this month, if a member is experiencing a medical eye care condition, they should contact their VSP network doctor. There's no change to premiums and no paperwork to complete­. A standard $20 copay may apply for some essential medical eye care. Members receive treatment in a setting that is safe and comfortable, including remote care when appropriate.

VSP understands the connection between eye care and overall health, and this expanded access will allow members to turn to their VSP network doctor for essential medical eye care services when they need it most. Network doctors do so much more than help with vision correction, such as diagnosing and treating conditions including conjunctivitis, eye trauma and sudden changes in vision. Members also can contact their VSP network doctor to use their routine VSP coverage for lost or broken glasses or replacement contact lenses. 

Call VSP Customer Care at 800.877.7195 for more information or for help finding an eye doctor.
