MPSERS Blue Vision℠ Plan
Michigan Public School Employees Retirement System (MPSERS) members now have Blue Vision coverage. It replaces EyeMed for both Medicare and non-Medicare MPSERS members. The plan is administered by Vision Service Plan (VSP). Find information about copays for eye exams, eyeglasses and contact lenses in the MPSERS Vision Coverage Summary (PDF).
Your vision ID card
Everyone who has a vision plan with MPSERS will get a new vision ID card. Here are a few things you should know about your card:
- Although you’ll get a new vision card, you won’t get a new medical card. Please keep your Blue Cross medical ID card. Only new medical plan members will get new cards.
- Members on the same medical policy will get identical vision ID cards. If you and your dependents or spouse share a MPSERS policy, you’ll get two ID cards with the enrollee's name on them. You won't get ID cards with each person’s name, even if you're a Medicare Advantage member.
- Members on different medical policies will get their own vision ID cards. If you and your spouse are both MPSERS retirees, you might have your own health policies. If so, you’ll each get a vision card with your own name and policy number.
If you lost your ID card or you’re waiting for it to come in the mail, you can still use your vision coverage. Just tell your provider you have VSP vision with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and they’ll be able to help you.
If you lost your ID card or never got one, call 1-800-422-9146 to request a new one.
