Eligibility:
All regular hourly and salaried employees in coded positions, working one-half time or more in a week are eligible for this plan. Eligible dependents must meet the same criteria for enrollment as required by the health and dental plans. Children between the age of 19 and 23 must be full-time students.

How Does The Plan Work?
You may select a provider from a VSP list of optometrists, make an appointment, and inform the provider’s office that you are a VSP member. The provider’s office will contact VSP for you and verify eligibility. You may obtain a list of approved VSP providers from your Departmental Employee Service Center. VSP also has an 800 customer service number and a web site where you can obtain additional information.

What Does The Vision Plan Cover?
Exam and lenses every 12 months:- $20.00 copay
Frames every 24 months :-               $20.00 copay

The plan also covers contact lenses up to $120.00 every 12 months, including the exam. The plan does not cover scratch-resistant coating, tinting, tinted contacts, or designer frames. Some providers will offer you discounts on these items, or discounts on a second pair glasses.

What Is My Biweekly Cost?
The County pays the full cost of the premium for full-time employees. Part-time employees have a prorated cost for this plan based on the number of hours worked in each payperiod.
