USC Faculty and Staff Vision Benefits

We are pleased to offer a range of services for faculty and staff. We believe it is important you have the most current information on your vision coverage for 2018. For more information on your vision coverage benefits, click here.

There are two significant changes to vision benefits for 2018:

  1. You’ll be enrolled automatically for vision coverage—unless you actively opt out during open enrollment. Your monthly cost for employee-only vision coverage will be about $9 per month, so if you don’t want coverage, be sure to indicate that during enrollment.
  2. The vision plan will have two coverage tiers. The plan will still be provided through the same Vision Service Plan (VSP), but you’ll enjoy lower copays and higher allowances for frames and contact lenses when you choose the new Tier 1, USC Roski Eye Institute providers. (Roski providers are also part of the VSP network.)

Please call the USC Benefits Office at (213)821-8100 for eligibility & questions
