VSP is a supplemental vision plan. Benefits include one vision examination and one set of corrective lenses per calendar year and one set of frames every other calendar year. There are additional benefits provided for dependent children through VSP’s KidsCare program, such as an additional vision examination, impact resistant lenses, lens replacement annually or more often as needed and frames replaced annually with a copay.

The employer-paid California State University (CSU) Vision Plan is administered by Vision Service Plan (VSP). VSP provides the administration of vision benefits and claims on behalf of all eligible employees. Under VSP, the frequency of benefits is based on a calendar year perspective. For example, if an employee has an eye exam in February 2016, he/she will be eligible for another eye exam on January 1, 2017, or thereafter.
