Does anyone have a version plan though a company called VSP? I was just offered to my husband today at work and they have to enroll by tomorrow if they want it. talk about giving a little bit of time.

He is bringing home the paperwork but said it will cover you contacts for the year and $150 towards glasses.



Any pro or cons from past experiences?

Thank You.

I've used it for years and it works well. There's no insurance card or anything, you just tell your optometrist you're on VSP and he gets some info on the policy holder and that's it. I still end up paying out of pocket, but not as much. I think it covers eye exams every other year, or at least mine does. So, it's not complete coverage, in that you'll probably pay something out of pocket, but it is worth the savings, and it is easy to use.

I will tell you that my old company had VSP and it is the absolute BEST! I had them for 7 years and there was never any issues with paying my eye dr, getting contacts, glasses, etc. I did have to pay $45 out of pocket for my contact fitting but that was based on the plan I had.

I go to the eye dr twice a year (due to an eye condition) and have never had to call VSP for any sort of issue.

My new company is Spectera and they are not as good. My eye Dr. was disappointed that I had Spectera and not VSP as VSP was so good to deal with.

If it is not going to break your bank I say go for it.

We have had VSP for several years.....

I just used ours 2 days ago!

Our plan (im not sure if they vary) gives you:

A set Co-pay for the exam. I beleive ours is $25

$150 towards frames (EVERY OTHER YEAR!)

$25 for lenses, but I had to pay to get my upgraded to the extra light and thin.

You are only eligable for frames if you didnt get contacts the year before (I wear both).

Contacts only you can get $100 per year for lenses.

So to tell you my bill....

I had a glasses and contact lenses exam, new frames and lenses (upgraded), contact fitting fee, and it still cost $150.

So, you decide :lmao: Im not always sure its best deal... but our cost for VSP is very minimal, so I wont complain.

Do you tend to find tghe private smaller drs that go along with them chanrge more?

Here is out vision usage to give you an idea.

I have been using walmart the past 5 years with current plan which we keep either way.

2 kids with glasses. 1 exam a year plus new glasses each year. Eye exam $15, glasses and lenses average $100 and than get reimbursed $50.

pros.. love paying the extra $15 and if my 8yo breaks her frames/lenses they are replaces for free for 1 year (she does that atleast once a year lol)


me: wear contacts and dont even have a current pay of eyeglasses well overdue and need a pair

hubby: is supposed to wear glasses but his broke 3 years ago and never replaces them.. Men lol

Cost will be $11.xx every 2 weeks for the plan.

I am just really concerned about the smaller eye drs and the chance of much higher priced glasses

We've had it for a couple of years now and I like it. My DH only pays like $6 a pay period (bi-weekly) for the family coverage. Here's what I saved just last week for DS11 exam and glasses. I hope this helps.

Without VSP Coverage
Exam $100
Lenses $76
Frame $180
Lens Options $40 (polycarbonate)
Total $396

With VSP Coverage
Exam $10
Eyewear $25 (co-pay towards materials)
Frame $52 (they only cover frames upt to $115 and frames were $180)
Lens Options $0 (polycarbonate was covered)
Total Paid $87

Savings of $309

I have VSP too. I used it last week for my eye exam and will use it when I order my contacts. It covers my complete eye exam except for my contact fitting which was $26.
It covers up to $150 in contacts or lenses for glasses. I can't remember the cost for frames since I haven't bought any glasses in awhile.
I think it's a great deal and it's not an expensive insurance, something like $12 a month.

We had Spectera before VSP and there is no comparison. VSP is much better.

Don't I hear ya. I ws so spoiled by how smoothly things went with VSP. Dealing with Spectera customer service is a nightmare and they do not cover nearly as much.

I wish I could go back to VSP. Maybe my company will switch but at least I have coverage right?

OP-I think you need to see what your DH's VSP plan will cover and decide if it is worth it. VSP is fairly reasonable and as mentioned, great customer service. DD9 got glasses last year and VSP was going to cover $125 for frames (the store had a 6 month replacement plolicy but this will vary by store). She chose frames that were $180 so I had to cover the rest.

For us seeing a someone at a smaller operation was better as there is a history of cataracts, early glaucoma and other eye issues in the family. The smaller operation I go to is more equipped to do field of vision tests, scans etc than my local Costoc or Walmart.

We've had VSP for years & I love it! I have never had a card, claim form, or any type of problem what-so-ever. There must be different plans, since I saw anove several people have co-pays for eye exams. I have never had a co-pay, so either I have a different plan, or they changed it for this year. I have annual exams covered in full, and 6 months worth of free contacts per year. $150 towards glasses every other year IF I didn't get contacts that same year.

If the employee contribution isn't much then definitely go for it!

We just added VSP to our benefit package this year and I have heard so many positive things already. If you or any dependents need corrective lenses it will most likely save you money. If you don't - but get an eye exam every year it will most likely save you money. It is a great plan and there are definitely different ones available (as far as benefit) although typically the design is the same - ours is:

$10 copay - exam (every 12 months)
$25 copay - lenses (every 12 months)
$120 allowance towards frames (only every 24 months)

If you choose contacts instead you pay for your fitting fee and can use the $120 allowance towards them instead. Most plans offer discounts on additional pairs of glasses so if you wear both it's usually going to be to your benefit to use your allowance towards your contacts and then use the additional discounts on your glasses.

I've had VSP for the past 9 years and love them. Plans vary but mine covers the following:
$15 copay for exam
$25 copay for lenses
covers frames up to $150 and then 20% off any amount exceeding that (every 2 years)
covers contacts up to $150 (once a year)

Only thing is you can't use the glasses coverage and contact coverage in the same year.

I haven't used any vision plan, personally, because my DH is an optometrist. I work some in his office & I can tell you that VSP is about the best vision plan out there! They cover more than most for the patient, and doctors like them because they pay promptly.

Spectera is the worst available! My husband started out as a provider, but dropped them after having so many problems with them. He was required to use their lab for Spectera covered patients. Their lab constantly made mistakes, which resulted in glasses being wrong and/or taking unreasonable amounts of time to get back. From a patient's point of view, this reflects poorly on the doctor & his staff. They don't realize how much he's fighting with the insurance company. Plus, Spectera often "changed their mind" about coverage AFTER a patient was seen. Then, the patient would, understandably, be upset if they were sent a bill because the insurance had refused payment. So, we ended up losing money with that insurance company.

Bottom line, in my opinion, embrace VSP & run from Spectera!

Our family has had VSP for years- in fact since 3 of us wear contacts, I signed up for the plan through my work even though my DH already had it. Our plans are different, my DH's copays are less and his plan includes progressive bifocals free(my plan has a fee for them). However, using both plans each family member gets both glasses and contacts or contacts twice each year. The hours at our local Walmart work better for my teenagers and we normally pay up front and submit the claims for reimbursement. The reimbursement is slightly less at non providers (especially for eye exams) but Walmart usually charges a little less so there is not too much of a difference. Using a provider makes the claim process much easier- no claim forms and you only have to pay a minimal copay for services.

My husband was just offered this plan also, but we decided not to go with it because he is the only one with glasses and our regular medical insurance covers eye doctor exams so we wouldn't need it for that just the glasses but we can get his glasses at a resonable price from Lens Crafters with a AAA discount of 30 %.

we have it and use it to get glasses. Of course my optometrist is on the other VSP plan, but it all levels out when you get glasses pretty much for free. I just pick them out and send in the reciept and get a check really fast.

Well with what you posted it will cost $263 per year for the plan so you would have to spend that much more for your glasses/contacts and I don't know if the VSP provider would take both insurances you would have to ask. I think I would find the VSP call and ask about duel insurance and then ask what they cover and what it would cost for what you would typicall want and see if that would total more than $263 to make it worth it.

Personally, I loved VSP when I had it years ago but I did not have any other vision coverage. I got my contacts and exam at no cost. Yes, my smaller doctor was more expensive for frames and lenses than walmart or another discount vision center. It only covered basic lenses and I wanted the thinner lighter lens because I have a strong perscription and would have coke bottle lenses if I didn't so that was extra. I believe my frame had to cost under $100 which was her basic frame cost and of course I didn't like any of the cheap frames and anything nice was over $200 at my providers office. You could always get it for a year and then drop it once you get everyone set with glasses and contacts too.

We've had VSP for years. We get eye exams for $20 every two years. I wish it would cover an annual exam.

Glasses are covered every two years, but our co-pay on glasses can vary upon the frames and lenses we pick. None of us wear contacts, so I have no idea what that coverage would include.

We have had VSP for a very long time. With four kids (3 who wear glasses) and hubby and I who also wear glasses it is well worth it for us. We usually go to lenscrafters or walmart though and pay up front then submit for reimbursement. Seems to be cheaper. The in-network guys just charge too much for the upgrades that I want on my lenses.

My DH's company provides VSP (as well as dental and health) at no cost to the employees (fed gov't contractor- engineering contracting-consulting company). Also no co-pay for VSP. I guess we have a different version than some. What we get is free exam per year, free glasses, lenses each visit (or contacts). If you want lens coating or upgraded anything else, you do have to pay a little more, but it's not bad. We also go to an opthamologist (M.D.) who is in a practice with optometrists and have opticians in the office. One of the many reasons we love the company he works for. Only DH uses it now for glasses/contacts. I dont' wear them although I go in every 1-2 years for checkups. DS (24) is on his own plan now through his job although we had him go right before he graduated college to get his last pair of glasses and DS (21) doesn't wear glasses either.

I love, love, love VSP. We just went ti the eye doctor last week and my husband's new glasses came to a whopping $358 and we paid $35! I am very happy with the savings. I haven't gotten mine because I am really picky about the frames. So, I have to shop around and get the numbers and he will special order my frames. For the family plan I pay somewhere around $12 a month for the insurance and it covers a pair of glasses or contacts every year for every family member. Both my husband and myself wear glasses so it is great for us. It is really easy to use. I highly recommend vsp! Good luck.

I have had VSP for years. I have only started using it more frequently now that my 2 kids wear glasses.

Yesterday DD5 had a follow up visit. I was told I had to pay $30 for a copay plus $35 for a refraction fee. I asked what that was and was told, that since the doctor was going to check her eyes and prescription there would be a refraction fee. huh?:confused3 Doesnt everyone go to the eye Dr. to have their eyes checked?:confused:

01-24-2008, 09:32 PM
we normally pay up front and submit the claims for reimbursement.

I do this as well, so you can use whoever you want. I will say that VSP doesn't really "advertise" that you can do this, but I did and it was GREAT!

Our policy with them provides for free exams and contact fittings one a year. They offer a percentage discount on glasses and contacts through their providers, but it is still cheaper to go elsewhere for those.

Wow...I think 'we' must have a totally different version of everyone else's VSP plan.....:confused3

We went to the optometrist (one of the plan's guys...NOT my pick of docs at all...long story). My husband had a contact lense exam...I had an exam for glasses. We both wear either or but he needed contact lenses...and my glasses are 4 years old. Anyhow...JUST the exams and my bill was $88.00!!
:eek:

They told me what the dollar amount was that the plan would pay towards contacts and glasses. Unfortunately, we are going to probably Eyemart to purchase those items because its cheaper...to be honest with you...I think the eye exams at Eyemart would have cost us just the same....the little man charged waaay more for exams then Eyemart does...go figure...lesson learned here...just go and pay for it ourselves and skip the VSP plan in the future...how sad...:sad2: Don't get me wrong...I'm very thankful that we 'have' insurance...but this was more trouble than it was worth. We really did not care for their choice of physicians and we spent just as much?

I think we must be on the same plan. I have used them and they were always more expensive for us than just going to a cheaper place and paying for it. DH and I both need new glasses and I am going to price it again and see where we stand, but the last couple of years it was just cheaper to pay for them at wal-mart.

As with any insurance, there are different levels within the VSP plan too. I know we have great coverage through them, because we are told that each and every time we get our glasses. Many of the extras are covered (transitional lenses, anti-glare coating, etc). We find it to be a big savings over not having it. We have a $10 co-pay for annual exams. I don't know off hand the costs for lenses and frames. But there is a substantial savings. My last pair of glasses (not including the exam) would have cost me about $600 if I had walked in off the street and bought them with no coverage. I believe my out of pocket was around $150. I am actually due for a new pair now, so I'll be going through this ritual again shortly.

I've had vision coverage with VSP since around 1988.

We have VSP. There's a 'basic' and a 'premium' plan, based on what we chose for our medical. We've never had any trouble with it. Awhile back it used to be that you could get glasses AND contacts, now it's either or. Here's a plus--this week I had Lasik surgery and they took 15% off since I have VSP--woohoo!!

I have worked for VSP for two years now. I can say the number of plans we offer are endless. It goes far beyond there being a basic and premium plan. That may be just what your employer offers but there are literally thousands of different plans VSP offered. It just may be that your employer has two they offer.
One persons plan can be very different from your neighbors, or even your co-workers.
I would be more than happy to answer any questions someone might have....that's pretty much what I do all day since I work in Customer Service.
VSP is the largest vision insurance provider in the US, over half the nation has VSP. The awards we have won pretty much speak for themselves with the quality of products and quality of our customer service.

DH has had the plan for years thru employer

they send us a brochure as to participating opticians/optometrists

for medical reasons DH & I see a surgeon for our needs, however; DS see a regular provider (local independent)

last year i needed a replacement pair in a hurry and the surgeon was backed up/just back from an extended vacation. So i made an appt with the one DSs use.

My glasses came back so messed up, i couldn't see out of them.

Had them re-do them twice; still couldn't see:mad:

called VSP and they interceded on my behalf.:thumbsup2 had me set up an appointment w/reg. dr. to check Rx and glasses - it was waaaay off.

I received most of my co-payment back & I was able to obtain replacement glasses (in the same frame) from my regular doctor.

Another :thumbsup2 for VSP! My DH and I just started with it last year. We got $1000 in services between the two of us last Feb and only paid $50 out of pocket for all of it!!! We pay $11 per pay period, but now we can get our eye exams and new glasses every year if we want! We also save about 1/2 on the current rate for Lasix if we decide to do that.

My impression is that VSP was formed by a bunch of overpriced small opticians to try to keep high pricing.

The VSP site touts staying with VSP-approved opticians. But I've found their prices, AFTER applying the VSP benefits, to be much higher than prices from equally-good mass merchandisers even without VSP benefits.

If you're forced to have a VSP plan, then buy outside their network and make a claim on VSP yourself, and you come out far ahead.

Example: Frame and progressive no-line bifocals in polycarbonate.

1. From Internet provider, and from Visionworks and from Optical Outlet:
$140, of which VSP will pay $140. Nothing to pay out-of-pocket.

2. From VSP-approved optician:
$400, or $320 with VSP discount, of which VSP will pay $150, leaving you $170 to pay out-of-pocket.

The Internet provider sold a much better product - even flex titanium frames. The Visionworks product was the same, and the Optical Outlet very slightly inferior.

We must have had the very bottom plan thru VSP. I hated that it only covered exams/glasses/contacts every other year. With young kids who's eyes change quickly, you have to go in for exams every year. But our coverage amount was decent.

I am just really concerned about the smaller eye drs and the chance of much higher priced glasses

DH & I had VSP until I cut back on my hours at work. (We both got our exams before it expired though! :rolleyes1 )

Anyway, we went to a independent eye doc with his own practice. The exam fee is more than Wal-Mart charges, but VSP covers regular eye exams at 100%, so we weren't OOP anything. Contact lens exams are a little different & you will have an out of pocket charge there.

You can also get by really cheap on the frames because they give you a certain allowance. You can have zero OOP if you pick from a certain grouping/price point of frame. Its perfect, especially for just a back-up pair of glasses.

DH & I each had our exams, he got new glasses and I got new contacts. I wear pretty expensive daily wear lenses (I'm blind as a bat) and our total was about $200. He chose frames that were above the allowance though - I think they were $200! And my contacts would have been $90 per lens w/o VSP.

I've always been happy with it - hopefully you'll be happy too!

sounds kinda like our plan which I love! copays for yearly exams are $20. I have a $220 yearly allowance for contact lenses. This year Im getting glasses though since its one or the other. I have to pay $20 towards materials and that is it for the glasses. Last year since they had some rebate special I only paid $20 for a whole year of contacts. Cant beat that!

I work for VSP and sometimes people only see the bottom line...the dollar bottom line. I don't blame you, I am the same way about a lot of things. BUT, here's what people don't understand about some of the retail chain outlets. I will use Lenscrafters as an example. The majority of their lenses are pre-fabricated. That means their lenses are in a box with the rx already applied. This may not be your EXACT rx but it's close enough. Wonder why they can get them to you so quick? That's why. All they do is cut them down to fit the frames you choose and off you go. Oh and that quick turnaround time is ONLY with your standard single vision lens. No options, no upgrades etc. As for the charges you described above...I certainly can't say for vision works but VSP has MANY MANY different plan options. It's up to your employer as to what plan you get. With the majority of VSP plans, you're single vision and lined multifocals are covered in full. All you pay is your upgrades, (coatings, etc). Some plans have options fully covered, again it depends on your specific plan. Most plans though have options that are at preferred pricing. FOr example on our standard most common plan you would pay between 60-119 for a progressive upgrade, we're talking top of the line progressive. That's another thing.....people don't realize there is not just one progressive lens. They are not all the same so you get what you pay for. Polycarbonate upgrade is $25. Trust me......I take 100 calls a day in the call center and I talk to people every day and educate them on the difference. Of course you have that option to go to a retail chain store and see a different dr every time. But VSP is known for private practice for a reason. We believe in the relationship you can develop with private practice dr's. Just like your medical dr. Your vision should be taken just as seriously. As for those that wear contacts.......big difference there as well.....if you do go out of network, ALWAYS ALWAYS check your expiration date on teh contacts. ;)
VSP was not formed by overpriced private Dr's.........there's a reason why VSP is the largest and most successful vision insurance company. 1 out of 6 people in the US have VSP. I'd say they're doing something right. :)
