Vision Insurance: Do you need it?

December 1, 2021

This time of year is popular for a lot of companies to do their Open Enrollment for benefits. The most common way for people to get vision insurance is through their employer. Most employers will offer plans to cover you and your family.

The overload of insurance information and the different prices can make it seem overwhelming during the open enrollment, so we wanted to point out some of the pros to having vision insurance. Of course, you know you and your family’s needs better than anyone, so that should be your big deciding factor.

Vision insurance is going to vary depending on your employer and the plans they offer. Usually, vision insurance can be limited compared to medical or dental insurance, but it is also known to be much less expensive.

Things to evaluate:

  • Do I or anyone in my family have current vision needs?
  • How much is the monthly cost?
  • Does my preferred provider accept the carrier my employer offers?
  • Will I or anyone in my family have vision needs soon?

All in all, whether you enroll in a vision plan should be based on your needs. Keep in mind the below list of carriers we can guarantee we can accept:

  • Eyemed
  • VSP Vision Care
  • Vision Benefits of America (VBA)
