VSP and BCBSND Partnership
BCBSND vision benefits are administered by VSP. VSP is the in-network provider for vision care products and eyewear for our groups.

Medical-related vision benefits will continue to be offered under BCBSND medical benefits. Your existing agreement with BCBSND will not be terminated because of the transition.

Process for Out of Network (OON) Providers
VSP created a separate number for OON providers in North Dakota to utilize to access patient information.

  • Please call: 1-844-830-7715.
  • When prompted, you will need to enter the member's Unique Member Identifier (UMI). The patient should have this information, if they do not have this information they will need to call BCBSND or log-in through the member's web portal.
  • You will have the option to use self-service or request to be routed to a Customer Service Representative (CSR)

Note: This phone number is for OON providers in North Dakota only. All other inquiries will receive a standard messaging and the call will be disconnected.

If you are not currently a participating VSP network provider and would like more information on how to join, please complete the form or email and a VSP representative will contact you.
