CSU Vision Plan – Premier

All CSU active employees eligible to participate in the CSU VSP Basic Plan are eligible to enroll in the Premier Vision Plan for a small monthly employee cost share. The Premier Vision Plan enables you to get a higher allowance for frames and contacts, fully covered standard progressive lenses, and more discounts.

Eligible employees must enroll through VSP directly by calling (800) 400-4569. The additional cost will be deducted directly from their pay warrant.

If the employee elects the Premier Plan, any dependents they wish to cover must also be enrolled into the Premier Plan coverage. Employees cannot choose to enroll in both the Basic and Premier vision plan coverage at the same time, or split their enrollment leaving any dependents on the Basic Vision Plan. 

The VSP Premier plan includes:
  • One comprehensive eye exam every calendar year.
  • One pair of lenses/frames every calendar year.
  • Contact lenses every calendar year when contact lenses are provided in lieu of all other lens and frame benefits.
  • Extra Savings on Retinal Screening.
