Most Medicare plans don’t cover routine vision care. We do.

Complement Your Medicare

You may be surprised to learn most Medicare plans don’t cover routine vision care. This means if you need an eye exam, or new glasses, you’ll likely have to pay out-of-pocket, and those costs can add up. The good news is, you can get an individual vision plan and get the vision insurance coverage you need to care for your eyes.

Get Year-round Savings

Our plans could help you save over $200 a year. With most individual vision plan options, you’ll enjoy a comprehensive eye exam for a $15 copay, $150 allowance for new glasses, and up to 30% savings on lens enhancements like progressives, providing you low out-of-pocket costs on eye care.

The #1 choice for vision coverage

When I retired and needed vision care, there was no question that it would be VSP.

Richard M

Upon retirement when former employer no longer covered vision, I was delighted to continue coverage with VSP for my family...


It has been great to be able to replace my glasses every few years rather than waiting 10+ years when I had no insurance.

Linda L

When I retired, I lost my employer-sponsored vision insurance. I researched private insurance and discovered VSP. It has been great, a real bargain when compared to other carriers. My optometrist said this was the best plan of the ones they honor. I have been on this plan for four years and have been extremely pleased with the service. the value, and the choices.

Stephen C

My husband and I were able to both get our glasses for half of what we used to. We saved over $200.

M. Leach

VSP spells out exactly what they cover, how much they cover and I know I can depend on it.
