We then provide quotes from every carrier available, showing not only a number of different plans but different strategies as well. We walk the client through the different plans and costs. Our services include on-boarding, enrollment, plan administration, and generally being the go-to people for any issues that the employee runs into.
There are several different group vision plans from which to choose and depending on the one selected, you get different levels of coverage. The most expensive for you and your employees is known as a “premier” plan, and provides the most generous coverage, including discounts on eyeglasses and contact lenses.
For a lower premium, there are still excellent plans that include good coverage for basic exams and services.
As with group health insurance, some group vision plans work with a preferred provider network, meaning there are incentives to use doctors listed within the plan. Increasingly, there are insurers who are developing partnerships with the most popular commercial eye care centers.
