The University provides basic vision insurance for employees and their families at no cost to the employee. Employees have the option to purchase an enhancement to the vision insurance (Vision Service Plan, also known as VSP).

Through this enhancement, you are able to purchase a Buy-Up Option, in addition to the vision insurance plan that is paid for by the University.

The VSP Buy-Up Option includes a $5.00 co-payment for the eye exam and a $10.00 co-payment for prescription glasses annually. The frame allowance is $150.00 and 20% off the amount over the $150.00. There is a $150 allowance for contacts and up to $60 copay for the contact lens exam (fitting and evaluation).
