Vision benefits are available as a separate, stand-alone benefit. Not all groups offer this coverage. If you participate in the vision plan, your benefits are provided through a partnership between MPR and VSP. VSP offers over 35,000 providers nationwide and they are private practitioners. All VSP providers have a dispensary on site (a one-stop-shop approach) and may be located in major retail malls, shopping centers, medical buildings, or office complexes in rural and suburban locations.

It’s easy to use this benefit. First, consult to find a provider or call (800) 877-7195. When you contact a VSP provider for an appointment, they will confirm your enrollment eligibility with VSP, and will file claims on your behalf.
