VSP Checks Shorted by Altair Glitch

ATTENTION VSP CLINICS WITH ALTAIR TAKE-BACKS: If your VSP check usually has take-backs for Altair frames, then the 2/15 check that dropped today may be significantly short because of an Altair-Eyefinity glitch. Altair take-backs were either doubled or totally zeroed out the checks with an additional chargeback line titled “Eyefinity Services.” We called VSP, Eyefinity, and Altair this morning as soon as we discovered the problem. The Altair official said the error was totally on their end. They discovered it late last night and started going through accounts. They are currently in the process of issuing paper checks that will come through the mail. They are prioritizing by the amount of the take-back error, working on the largest take-backs first for accounts that were shorted over $1,000. OBS did an audit for all our clinics’ checks and has already contacted Eyefinity on behalf of those clinics that the Altair error impacted. A paper check should be mailed to you by next week. If you do not have payment for your Altair frames taken out of your VSP checks, then this glitch did not affected your VSP payment.
