The State of Rhode Island’s vision plan is administered by VSP. Coverage for eligible employees who elect to participate in the vision plan is effective the first day of state employment. Vision elections and changes can only occur at the time of hire or during the annual open enrollment period unless a status change occurs during the year.
The VSP Eyecare Benefit brochure provides a summary of the state employee vision coverage. To find a participating doctor, go to the VSP website at www.vsp.com or call 1-800-877-7195. You must tell the doctor you are a member of VSP in order for him/her to verify your VSP eligibility. No ID cards are issued to VSP members nor are they required by participating doctors.
