Vision Plan

Nemours Children’s offers a Voluntary Vision program through Vision Service Plan (VSP) on a pre-tax basis. There are two levels: the Base option and the Premium option. The Vision Plan is a PPO Plan, and offers you the freedom to seek care from any provider that you wish. If you use an in-network (participating) provider, you will generally pay a co-pay.

To Utilize Your VSP Benefits:

  1. Consult your Vision Plan booklet for coverage details.
  2. Find a VSP doctor online or by phone 24-hours-a-day.
  3. Make an appointment with a VSP doctor and identify yourself as a VSP member.

There is no ID card, so be sure to identify that you are a VSP member. Your provider will take care of the rest.

NOTE: Our Medical Plan also includes a Vision Discount Program, and covers one eye exam every 12 months; however, you must use an Aetna participating ophthalmologist or optometrist. Your Medical and VSP discounts cannot be combined.
