We are pleased to offer a range of services for faculty and staff. You can get comprehensive annual eye exams and contact lens evaluations at USC Roski Eye Institute’s HSC and UPC locations, and a wide variety of designer eyewear at the HSC, UPC and USC Village optical shops. There’s also an onsite lab at the USC Village location that can make most prescription glasses in 24 hours or less. See the USC Roski website for more locations throughout L.A.
There are two significant changes to vision benefits for 2018:
- 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.
- 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.)

How It Works
You can use Tier 1 providers or Tier 2 VSP network providers. You can also use non-VSP providers (Tier 3 in the chart below) at a significantly reduced benefit.
