Find a VSP doctor
Once enrolled in VSP, you will need to find a VSP doctor. You can do so by:
- Visiting the VSP Doctor Directory
- Calling the toll-free Member Services Support Line at (800) 877-7195.
The toll-free T.D.D. number for the hearing impaired is (800) 428-4833.
Making an appointment
After you have selected a doctor, you can obtain services by:
Making an appointment with your chosen VSP doctor and
telling the office that you are a VSP member when making the appointment.
After you make an appointment
After you make an appointment, your doctor and VSP will handle the rest by verifying your benefits and
eligibility for services. UNM provides VSP with your UNM Banner ID for identification purposes.
Please provide your UNM Banner Identification number, not your
Social Security Number, when using services at your vision provider or when speaking to VSP.
VSP does not issue membership cards.
