How to use your Vision Service Plan (VSP) benefits

  1. Review your member material, including your benefit summary.
  2. Use the provider directory to locate a participating provider. When searching for a provider, choose "routine vision services" from the Provider Type drop-down to the right of your search results.
  3. Schedule an appointment with your VSP provider. Tell the scheduler that you have VSP.

Tip: When you access care from a VSP provider, you'll need your 17-digit VSP member ID number. Your VSP member ID is your Providence Health Plan member ID number* plus your Providence Health Plan Group number. Both numbers are located on the front of your member ID card. Be sure to provide all 17 digits when contacting VSP regarding eligibility, services, benefits or claims.

* Each plan participant has a unique member ID number. Be sure to reference or provide the card of the individual who is receiving services.
