Vision Coverage

In addition to health and dental options, DC Health Link is also pleased to provide access to individual vision insurance through our partnership with VSP® Vision Care. Currently available to DC residents, VSP Individual Vision Plans include coverage for services such as eye exams, glasses, and lens enhancements like progressives.
