Whether open enrollment makes you yawn or say yikes – there are options to keep you and your family’s eye care and eye health covered.
Open enrollment is the time of year where you can select your health, dental, and vision benefits. Since premiums, deductibles, co-pays, and network coverage can shift from year-to-year, it’s always a good idea to review your plan options during this period.
Here are three things to consider while navigating through this year’s open enrollment:
1) Remember vision coverage isn’t just for people who need glasses or contacts – getting an annual eye exam helps maintain overall health and wellness and can even aide in early detection of hypertension and diabetes.
2) Check to ensure your coverage gives you access to a large network of eye doctors and that there are practices located near you, so you can get the most out of your vision benefits. Most VSP members have access to at least five network eye doctors within five miles of where they live or work.
3) Enroll in vision insurance that allows you to save money while keeping your eye health a top priority. VSP members save an annual average of $375 and have access to exclusive special offers.
