Vision Plan Cost
The cost for vision coverage is included in the graduate staff medical plan premium.
Graduate staff are automatically enrolled with their dependents in the graduate staff vision plan through VSP when they enroll in the graduate staff medical plan at the Academic HealthPlans (AHP) Portal. Dependents include your legal spouse and/or dependent children (until the end of the month in which the children reach their 26th birthday).
Vision ID Number
Your VSP ID number is your ten-digit Purdue University ID number. Do not add the trailing eleventh number; this is a card version number.
Access Your Benefits
Once your plan is effective, register at vsp.com to find an eye care provider and review your benefits and claims. At your appointment, tell them you have VSP. There’s no ID card necessary.
