Making the Most of your Vision Insurance
In today’s workforce, many companies offer their employees not only health insurance, but, in some cases vision insurance or discount vision plans. Having these added benefits to your insurance plan ensures you will receive the proper eye care each year. Furthermore, having supplemental vision insurance can help in saving you money when purchasing eyeglasses or contact lenses.
Types of Vision Insurance
Most employers offer their employees two types of vision insurance:
Vision Benefits Package:
Vision benefit packages provide consumers with free eye care services and eye wear within a predetermined fixed dollar amount. In this case, the consumer pays an annual premium or membership fee and a small co-pay. In some cases a deductible may be necessary.
Discount Vision Plan:
Discount vision plans offer customers with eye care and eye wear at a discounted rate, after an annual membership and/ annual premium is paid.
Knowing which of these options to choose, will be determined by your need for vision care. The Vision Benefits Package may be a better option if you need to visit the eye doctor more than once a year. The Discount Vision Plan may be the better option if you only need to visit your eye doctor for your annual eye exam.

Flexible Spending Accounts
Ask your employer if they offer flexible spending accounts as part of your employee benefits package. Flex accounts allow you to appoint a portion of your pre-tax income into an account you can use to pay for medical expenses not covered by your regular health insurance plan. Flex plan funds are often used to pay for dental and eye care expenses, which are usually not covered under standard employee health insurance plans.
