Offering the right vision benefits may not only increase member satisfaction, but it may also improve their overall health.
Vision care exams can identify vision problems, as well as serious health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and a few types of cancer before symptoms may even appear. Discovering any of these health problems at a time when it may be easier to treat and cure could reduce the overall medical costs for care.
Our customer care representatives are available to answer member questions Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET.
