The Value of Vision Coverage

Episode #28


Did you know that vision coverage is the most requested voluntary benefit among employees? And it’s not a recent trend! In fact, vision coverage has been the most requested voluntary benefit for several years running. Employers often think adding vision coverage to their plan will be too large of an expense. However, as Scott and Anne Marie share in this episode of Side Affects, vision coverage accounts for a small percentage of your total health care cost. Vision coverage is not expensive, but the cost of not having such coverage in your benefits package could potentially cost you in terms of retaining employees and having a competitive benefits package. This episode also explores the value of dental coverage and how eye exams can provide early detection for much larger underlying health issues.
