Crew members can enroll in Vanguard's vision coverage regardless of their medical election or even if they waive medical coverage.
The plan covers the cost of two pairs of corrective glasses, two pairs of contact lenses, or one pair of each. Detailed plan information can be found in the Summary Plan Description and on the Vision Service Plan (VSP) website. Crew can be reimbursed for out-of-pocket vision expenses by enrolling in a health care flexible spending account (FSA).
To get the most from your vision plan, visit a VSP in-network provider.
- If you are the primary member, you may search for in-network providers using the Find a Doctor tool on VSP's website.
- If you are a covered dependent, you will need to register on the VSP website using the primary member's ID and create your own VSP account to access the tools.

All crew (both primary members and dependents) will need to register for access when visiting the site (vanguard.vspforme.com) from outside of CrewNet.
VSP also offers an in-network option to shop online for eyewear and contact lenses through their partnership with Eyeconic.
Note: An ID card is not needed for VSP, as your provider will be able to verify with VSP if you have coverage. Your ID number is three zeros followed by your six-digit crew ID.
