CSU vision benefits are insured through Vision Service Plan (VSP).
Eligible CSU employees and dependents are automatically enrolled in a basic vision coverage that is currently paid by the CSU. Premiums are generated through the payroll process and are paid on a monthly basis. Premiums are paid annually in a one-time lump sum amount for Faculty Early Retirement Program (FERP) employees.
All CSU active employees eligible to participate in the CSU VSP Basic Plan are eligible to enroll in the Premier Vision Plan for an additional cost. The Premier Vision Plan provides a higher allowance for frames/contacts, fully covered standard progressives lenses, and more discounts.
The CSU will continue to contribute the basic monthly premium, and the employee will have the additional premiums deducted directly from their pay warrant.
