VSP Contact Lens Reimbursement at Walgreens.com

Walgreens.com is a pretty good place to get a deal on contact lenses, but it’s not a participating provider for VSP vision insurance.  Unlike an optometrist, they won’t submit a claim to VSP directly, even if you’re covered.  The good news is, if you want to buy from Walgreens and you have VSP, you can still file a claim for reimbursement yourself.

  1. Check your VSP account online to make sure you’re eligible.
  2. Buy your lenses from Walgreens.com.  (I highly recommend checking ebates.com for great cash back deals on lenses and lots more.)
  3. Open up your Walgreens My Account page, and bring up your order under Orders and Activity.  Print the complete order page to a PDF file and save it to your computer.
  4. Log into the VSP website with your member account.
  5. Navigate to Claims and Reimbursement, and Submit an Out Of Network claim.  Start a New Claim.
    • Enter the date of your order.
    • Enter your personal information.
  6. On the Service Information page, you’ll need to specify “Other” and enter the contact information for the Walgreens.com store.  I was able to find this just by looking around the Walgreens.com website for contact information.  The image below shows what I used, but things may have changed, so I would encourage you to look it up for yourself.walgreens
  7. On the Receipts page, upload the PDF you saved in Step #3.
  8. Submit!

With luck, your claim will be processed within a week or two.
