Good Vision Coverage Promotes Proper Eye Care

Employees who have vision benefits tend to take better care of their eyes, a new analysis finds. It's another reason why group vision coverage through MedBen VisionPlus is an affordable way to promote employee health that goes beyond standard medical care.

According to BenefitsPro, a review of data derived from a 16-year consumer study showed that over 87% of Americans with vision coverage intend to get an eye exam within the next 12 months, compared to only 67% of those without a vision benefit. Similarly, following the exam, 67% of individuals with a benefit will get new eyewear, as opposed to just 34% without a benefit.

Of course, to promote better eye care to your employees, it pays to have the right vision plan. With MedBen VisionPlus, you can put together an inexpensive vision package that encourages regular exams and corrective eyewear. Plan members can choose to use network providers at a reduced cost to them, or go outside the network if they prefer.

Moreover, the health benefits of eye care doesn't stop with diagnosing vision problems. By examining blood vessels in the eyes, doctors can detect early signs of chronic conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.

Employers benefit from offering vision coverage, too: It gives them a competitive advantage when recruiting new employees. Find out all the ways MedBen VisionPlus enhances your health care plan by contacting Vice President of Sales & Marketing Brian Fargus at bfargus@medben.com.
