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: When you receive vision care, the plan will  pay up to an allowance amount. You pay the full cost of services over this allowance
