PFRPA Vision Plan
In January 2019, the PFRPA Vision Plan, administered by VSP Vision Care, was made available exclusively for PFRPA members. We offer retired NFL players and their spouses access to the best in eye care and eyewear with this unprecedented coverage through the VSP Choice network.
Eligibility & Plan Coverage

In a calendar year, both the enrolled member and his spouse can each choose one pair of frames (allowances vary) with prescription lenses included AND an annual supply of contacts.
Value and Savings: The benefit comes with a $0 copay. PFRPA pays for 100% of the monthly premiums.

Thoughts from Retired NFL Players
"I had an eye exam that was free thanks to the PFRPA Vision Plan. I went to Costco with my prescription and got two pairs of sunglasses with progressive lenses. I worked with the Costco rep and got two pairs of designer frames, getting the most expensive one free. The insurance worked for me, and I highly recommend it.”
