Beginning October 1, 1988 ACSIG partnered with VSP to begin a vision coverage program. ACSIG is 100% self-insured through VSP for this program. Members can join as a fully-insured member or a self-insured member.
- Fully Insured – Pay a monthly rate per employee determined by underwriting based on their specific plan design and program offerings.
- Self-Insured – Pay the actual amount of services rendered and a VSP administration fee and an ACSIG administration fee. Rates are revised and voted on by the JPA Board each May. The total amount of claims and fees is billed monthly in arrears.
Membership represents 18 agencies statewide. Because the program is self-funded, members have a lot of flexibility for plan design. The program totals more than $2 million annually. All eligibility is managed through ACSIG who partners with Alliant Insurance Services for all underwriting.
