Saying “I Do” to Enrolling in Vision Benefits

By on

Sometimes life comes at you fast and big. Changing Jobs. Getting married. Having a baby. And all of these changes come with the stress of accepting (and celebrating), adjusting, planning, and living it.

Planning and adjusting to these events can be stressful enough on their own, so sometimes the fine print gets set aside and overlooked. But here’s the thing; those little things can have a big impact and it’s easy to tackle them without much additional effort.

When you go through these life events,  you may be eligible to enroll in health coverage outside your typical enrollment period.  Enrolling in vision care is one of those little things that has a big impact and is easy to do.  It saves you money, protects your overall health, and if you need glasses or contacts it provides you with additional access and savings.

If you’re thinking “I have enough on my plate right now, is she serious?” I get it. I really do. I got married last week and the last thing I wanted to think about were my employer-offered benefits. I was way more worried about seating charts and photos and picking the song we used for our big entrance. However, in this month-long window after the wedding my husband (!) and I need to figure out how we’re going to handle all of our benefits, including health care coverage. Will we go through his employer or mine? How do we maintain access to our favorite doctors? What makes financial sense? What do we NEED? How can we make this easy? Who will have the better benefit package for our soon-to-be growing family?

And quite frankly, opting into vision coverage is probably the easiest decision out of the bunch. I check the box and I’m done. We’re covered and can move on to the next thing.

So if you’re changing jobs, getting married, having a baby, etc., visit to learn why vision care might be the right decision for you, too.  And best of luck with your new chapter!
