At last check, no. The FCC provides a list of providers participating in the ACP at:

https://www.fcc.gov/affordable-connectivity-program-providers

That may change, but the regulatory requirements imposed by the FCC may not be profitable for budget plans that Visible offers - despite being owned and operated by Verizon, it's a separate business unit with a different business plan. Verizon participates but look at their pricing structure.

Visible currently does not offer the acp program, if your looking for the acp program with unlimited data look into assurance Wireless, but they don't offer bring your own phone you have to use the phone they sent you. if your looking for acp with BYOP look into SafeLink wireless they offer 25 gig

There is no Lifeline/ACP compatibility at this time, but a representative from Visible CS told me that Lifeline is currently in the works, and when it launches, you will be able to choose the plan. So, you will not only receive a $9.25 discount for Lifeline and/or a discount up to $30 for ACP, but if you wanted to, you could elect that discount to be applied to a Visible+ plan, as well as an Apple Watch add-on package. Heck, if you have both Lifeline and ACP, and you're in a party of 3 members, your Visible+ with Apple Watch add-on service could potentially be like $0.75/month for the life of the ACP program. When it runs out, it would be like $25.75 with the Lifeline credit alone.

 

There is no date set for the program launch at this time, nor have all the details been released. Please stay tuned for updates! They will come directly from Visible.

 

By the way, I’m actually gonna need these benefits at Visible, or my Rep Payee won’t allow me to switch from my current carrier.
