Good Vision Coverage More Than Just an "Add-on"

Vision care is typically described as an ancillary benefit, but its advantages make it more than just an add-on. MedBen VisionPlus offers a great complement to your group medical and pharmacy coverage.

HealthDay News reports that, according to a new study, after receiving routine eye exams more than half of people with no new symptoms or vision problems receive new prescriptions or treatment changes. Meanwhile, 16% were diagnosed with a new eye condition and 31% had a change in their ongoing care.

Furthermore, regular vision checkups do more than correct eyesight and reduce the risk of eye diseases — they also can potentially detect such chronic conditions as diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol. Conversely, people with these conditions are more prone to losing their eyesight. So the benefits of vision care extend well beyond simply getting a fashionable pair of eyeglasses.

MedBen VisionPlus puts your employees’ eyes first. By emphasizing regular exams and early detection and treatment of visual impairments, our group vision product enhances your overall health care plan. It's an affordable benefit that pays for itself in multiple ways.

Learn more about the advantages of quality vision care through MedBen VisionPlus by contacting Vice President of Sales & Marketing Brian Fargus at bfargus@medben.com.
