More and more employers are choosing Vision Service Plan (VSP) as a stand alone vision plan rather than the rider they may get with their medical plan.   Cost, flexibility and benefits are the driving factors.

VSP is typically less expensive than the group rider, does not require child coverage and does not restrict access to providers like most medical plan riders do.

ACA laws require group medical plans to include a vision benefit for children under age 19 so no need to include children.  If the group chooses a vision rider on their medical they end up "double paying" for children.  If the plan is "stand-alone", not all dependents on the medical need to be covered.  VSP network of doctors is larger than any carrier, the benefits are more robust and the rates more competitive.   See details, benefits and rates below.
