The County offers eligible employees a new Voluntary Vision Plans through Vision Service Plan,VSP® Vision Care. Employees can elect to enroll in a low option plan or a high option plan.

  • Vision Choice Plus
  • Vision Choice Premium

Comprehensive Eye Care. VSP® Vision Care provides you with an affordable, comprehensive eye exam to help keep you and your eyes healthy. The plans offer coverage for an eye exam, prescription glasses, contacts, and discounts on lens options and laser vision correction. Choose the plan that's right for you.

Open Access. You have open access to use your VSP benefit with any provider, including national chains and non-VSP doctors. While coverage is best with VSP doctors, VSP offers a generous reimbursement schedule for services from all other providers. And VSP keeps it simple by allowing other providers to contact them directly to check eligibility and submit claims directly to them. VSP then pays the provider up to the scheduled amounts, so you would only be responsible for paying any amount above the allowances.
