DentalPlans.com has some great news for Members and potential customers. We expanded our discount vision program by adding a third provider, VSP, to the company’s offerings through Careington. DentalPlans.com has long been the leading retailer of dental savings plans and the addition of VSP’s Choice Access® Plan allows the company to extend more choices and savings to its members for eye care services. Vision plans help our members save money at participating eye doctors where they work, shop and live.
Here are some common questions we get on our discount vision programs:
With eye care’s relation to such health issues, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also provides some shocking facts on the status of vision care among adults in the United States:
The percentage of adults 40 years and older who reported no visit to an eye care provider in the past year ranged from 30 to 44 percent among the participating states.
The percentage of adults 40 years and older who reported not having health insurance coverage for eye care ranged from 22 to 52 percent among the states.
The prevalence of fair or poor health for people aged 65 years and older with moderate or extreme vision impairment was 43 percent, compared to 30 percent for those with a little vision impairment, and 24 percent for those with no vision impairment.
With VSP’s Choice Access® Plan helping members save on eye exams and eyeglasses, DentalPlans.com continues to make vision more accessible to Americans. While this plan is not insurance, it is a savings plan allowing Members to receive a discount, or pay a standard amount based on regional fee schedule averages; whichever amount is less. Individual plans are available for $29.95 per year and family plans are available for $49.95 per year.
