As mentioned a bit ago here on my blog Vision Service Plan will no longer allow patients to receive in-network benefits for Aspex Eyewear products. While this is just one manufacturer, they are the single best provider of frames with polarized sun-clips. Their products have been very popular with our patients as they provide a great product at a very nice price point.
Unfortunately, VSP is trying to punish Aspex by not allowing their members to have access to Aspex products (and they have over 55 million members who receive vision care benefits through VSP, that’s a lot of patients to lose access to if your Aspex).
Here’s a link to the news story that makes this official. Look for more information coming to you if you are one of our patients and you have VSP as your vision benefits company.
