Vision Insurance for Dentists and Staff

Vision insurance is available to all MDA members through the largest non-profit vision insurer in the country. Most members live within 10 miles of a VSP-participating doctor and can take advantage of coverage that may include exams, discounted lenses and frames, or contact lenses.

MDA offers members three VSP insurance options:

  • Premier Plan provides all services of the basic plan but allows for new frames annually with a $200 limit, and a $25 materials co-pay. This plan includes progressive lenses for a $40 co-payment and anti-reflective coating for a $25 co-payment. There is a $10 co-pay for a vision exam.

Member Vision Cards

VSP now offers enhanced Member Vision Cards as a solution for your employees who prefer to carry a vision insurance card.

Sample vision insurance cardThis print-on-demand card is available through the VSP member site (requires member login to view) on vsp.com. It’s designed to reduce the vision benefit questions you receive from employees and contains personalized information, including: 

  • member name;
  • coverage type (i.e., Member Only, Family, etc.);
  • client ID number;
  • doctor network name; and
  • copays.

Because it is personalized, the card cannot be printed en masse for all your employees. Cards must be generated and printed one at a time. Protected Health Information, like member ID number and date of birth, is not included on the insurance card. VSP is committed to protecting the privacy and security of our members and their data. Including PHI can put members at risk of identity theft if the printed card is lost or stolen.

This enhanced card is a convenience for members and is not required for service. As always, full benefit information is available through the VSP member site on vsp.com.
