VSP Global’s goal is to win more patients for network doctors. To do this, winning starts with the client. As the marketplace continues to shift, we will always continue to invest in the success of network doctors. This means making decisions that will strengthen our position to win contracts and grow membership.
As part of these efforts, we have been working to align the VSP supply chain with industry standards and ensuring VSP offerings remain competitive, relevant, and of high value to doctors, members, and clients. Continue to check back regularly for updates.
Formulary Changes Delayed Until 2021 and Fund Established to Help Offset Doctor COVID Costs
In response to the continuing extraordinary impacts of COVID-19, VSP® will delay ophthalmic formulary changes originally set to start September 1, until January 1, 2021 and is launching a new grant program to help offset expenses network practices are dealing with as a result of the pandemic.
Flourishing in the Face of Change
Like the rest of the world, I’ve been impacted by the pandemic. Our practice was closed for routine care for six weeks, current patient flow is reduced by a third, and we have all sorts of new safety protocols in place.

Tasting Every Item On the Menu

Moving to Unity
With upcoming formulary changes from VSP, some doctors are considering altering their lens products to accommodate. As a practice that now uses Unity Lenses almost exclusively, we have experience making that transition.
