Vision Care Direct Providers Combine Great Value with Great Prices

When you’re searching for vision benefits for your employees, you want a plan that makes sense. Traditionally, vision insurance providers have made coverage confusing, and visiting the doctor’s office has only come with surprise out-of-pocket expenses.

Fortunately, Vision Care Direct is reinventing the industry with simple, flexible, and affordable benefits. Founded and managed by practicing optometrists, we understand patient needs and offer plans with the end user in mind. Our network of Vision Care Direct providers all across the country are committed to providing quality care at a fair price, so more individuals can access essential eye services.

Whatever your team’s size, we can help you craft a group plan that benefits everyone involved. Before signing up, though, it’s natural to have some questions about our coverage options and the Vision Care Direct providers who back them.

To get you answers, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most common questions we receive from employers.

Do My Employees Really Need Access to Vision Care Plan Providers?

According to The Vision Council, about 79% of U.S. adults use some sort of vision correction, including eyeglasses, prescription sunglasses, and contact lenses. Offering your employees vision benefits helps them make their eye health a priority.

Comprehensive eye exams from vision care plan providers play an important role in preventing vision problems and allow those who need eyewear to stay up-to-date on their prescription. Annual screenings have also been proven to shed light on the early signs of other medical conditions, like high cholesterol, heart disease, and diabetes.

Additionally, employees with healthy eyes are generally more productive in the workplace. Those with uncorrected vision issues are more likely to experience eye strain and headaches that impact their efficiency and may even cause them to miss work days. As an employer, this can equate to lost revenue.

Beyond that, an eye care plan can be a key factor in attracting and retaining top talent. Employees consistently rank vision services as a top-three benefit. When you make it easy for your team to visit a Vision Care Direct provider, you’ll be well on your way to increasing job satisfaction, boosting engagement, and giving your company a competitive edge.

What Are the Benefits of Signing Up for a Group Plan?

Employers everywhere are taking notice of our fresh approach to vision benefits and making the switch from standard vision insurance providers. Why? Let us count ways!

  • Our group plans can be offered on a voluntary, employee-paid basis and are pre-tax deductible.
  • Benefits make employees feel that they’re valued, and you’ll get the credit when they save money seeing a Vision Care Direct provider.
  • Several studies have shown that a vision plan can help keep health insurance costs down, as your team will be less reliant on the company medical plan.
  • You’ll always speak to a live VCD representative when you call.
  • We have optometrists on staff ready to help when your employees have eye care questions that don’t warrant a full appointment. The best part is individuals don’t even have to be VCD members yet!

How Can My Employees Find Vision Care Direct Providers Near Them?

Locating Vision Care Direct providers in your area is simple. Visit our Find a Provider page and fill in the search criteria to populate doctors near you. You can then browse contact details, learn more about the practitioners at each location, and see what services and products are available.

Who Are VCD PLUS Providers?

Most Vision Care Direct providers are partnered with us as PLUS providers who enhance what our VCD members receive. When employees elect to see a VCD PLUS provider, they can get the latest fashion eyewear and high-definition ophthalmic lenses, plus premium add-ons like an anti-reflective coating, scratch-resistant coating, and UV protection, all for one low price. Multifocal wearers can even take advantage of standard digital progressive lenses at no additional charge.

With VCD PLUS providers, it’s never been easier (or more affordable!) to get quality eyewear! Encourage employees to look for the VCD PLUS logo when searching for an optometrist on our website.
