I already have a link to vsp.com on my website. How is this different?
Thank you for including a link to vsp.com. The vsp.com link is for those who already have vision insurance with VSP and need to review their benefits. The ads for the VSP Individual Vision Plans Doctor Program are for patients who don't have vision insurance and are looking for affordable care for themselves and/or their family.
When and how does my practice get paid?
Practices are paid their advertising payments for inquiries (online and phone) with a Visa® gift card sent to the email address they signed up with.
If you have additional questions about the payment process, please email us and we'll get in contact with you directly.
Do I still get paid if my patient doesn’t enroll?
Yes. Participating in the program and advertising payments are not dependent on your patient enrolling. Once your patient lands on the application page of MyVSPPlan.com, you’ll receive the advertising payment.
I work in a practice with multiple doctors. Can we all sign up for the VSP Individual Plans Doctor Program and receive advertising payments?
Your practice can sign up for the VSP Individual Vision Plans Doctor Program. However, individual doctors within your practice cannot sign up separately.
Can I participate if I don’t have a website for my practice?
While it's ideal to have a website, you can still participate in the program through Facebook via the social sharing icon on your dashboard. If you don't have a personal practice website, consider setting one up through eyefinity.com via the eWeb tab. Once your site is up, if you’re a Premier Program practice, you can access the tips provided by My Marketing Team to amplify your website presence.
VSP® Individual Vision Plans Product Questions

- coverage for lens enhancements.
Members enrolled in a VSP Individual Vision Plan also have access to the same special offers as other VSP members.

VSP Individual Vision Plans are available nationwide and plans vary by state. All plans offer the VSP Choice Network. Patients can visit MyVSPPlan.com and enter their zip code to see plan offerings in their area.
What type of patients would benefit from an Individual Vision Plan?
VSP Individual Vision Plans are a cost-saving option for your non-benefited patients who are:
- working part-time,
- minimally covered through work,
- aging off their parent's plan.

Is Instant Enrollment available online?
Starting May 26, 2020, Online Instant Enrollment is available. Patients can sign up for an Individual Vision Plan through your practice’s website IP ad or IP Facebook post and their vision coverage will go into effect immediately.
