We have some breaking news for VSP member doctors regarding updates to the Contact Lens Care Program, effective July 1, 2009.
- VSP is increasing the not-to-exceed pricing for new and refit patients by $20. The new pricing will range from $160-$190 for new and refit patients.
- Package pricing covers initial contact lens exam (fitting and evaluation). Only the initial contact lens exam is included in the package pricing.
- Additional follow-up care can be billed to patients. You can charge patients 85% of your U&C fees for additional necessary services such as problem solving, follow-up care, instruction, and training based on the doctor’s professional determination.
- Member communications materials will reflect these changes. This will help set the correct expectation for patients seeking to access the program and practices will have access to these tools.
This is all the information that we have at this time regarding VSP updates to the Contact Lens Care Program. Please talk to your VSP representative for further details.
