Vision Insurance

Vision Insurance  

Overview

Nearly 40 million Americans over age 40 have some form of vision impairment.* But only about a third of businesses offer vision insurance to their employees.** Yet, eye exams can detect serious health problems such as cancer and diabetes. Thus, businesses that offer this benefit can keep more employees more productive, for longer periods.

 

As a COA doctor, you can enjoy an exclusive competitive advantage: offering this necessary but often-overlooked coverage to your employees.

 

Your employees get the advantage of working with a business that offers them and their families a prized benefit: Vision coverage that may cost them less than they could find on their own.
