VSP — Vision Service Plan — is here to help people who have been affected by the tornadoes in Joplin. Here are some quick questions and answers for people who have VSP and for those who are not currently covered by VSP.
People with VSP Coverage
I lost/broke my eyewear as a result of the tornadoes, but already used my benefits this year. Can VSP help? Any VSP member who has lost or broken their glasses or contact lenses due to the tornadoes can call our Call Center at 800.877.7195 and have their VSP benefits reinstated regardless of eligibility.
People Without VSP Coverage
Can people not covered by VSP or who have lost their glasses as a result of the tornadoes be helped by VSP? Yes. We have provided VSP eyecare vouchers to the American Red Cross. Contact your local Red Cross chapter and request a VSP eyecare voucher.
