QUESTION: Can I use any doctor or optometrist?

ANSWER: Yes. However, if you use a non-VSP doctor, you will need to pay your provider in full, obtain an itemized receipt, and then file a claim with VSP. You would then be reimbursed according to the out-of-network schedule of benefits, which is less than the Plan would pay for an in-network provider.
