Vision Plan

The County of San Diego offers you vision coverage through Vision Service Plan (VSP). The plan features include:

  • Eye Doctors: You can choose any vision provider you want. However, you pay more when you use a vision provider who does not participate in the VSP network. Eye doctors who participate in the VSP network are called in-network providers; those who don’t participate in the network are considered out-of-network.
  • Paying for Care: When you receive vision care, the amount you pay depends on what type of eye doctor you use. Your copay for an office visit is $15.
  • In-network eye doctors: When you receive vision care, you generally pay a set dollar amount called a copay. For frames and elective contact lenses, the plan will pay up to an allowance amount, and you pay the full cost over this allowance.
  • Out-of-network eye doctors: You pay the full cost of service and are reimbursed through VSP up to the allocated amounts. 
  • Contacts, Lenses and Frames:  You will be able to select frames and lenses or contact lenses annually.
  • VSP EasyOptions: Allows for one of the following upgrades with an in-network provider (excludes Costco, Walmart or Sam’s Club. Base plan benefits are available at these locations):
    • Additional $100 frame allowance, or
    • Fully covered premium or customer progressive lenses, or
    • Fully covered light-reactive lenses, or
    • Fully covered anti-glare coating, or
    • Additional $50 contact lens allowance
