Group Vision Insurance

Help your employees care for their total health.

When it comes to your employees’ healthcare expenses, every dollar adds up. Group vision insurance is a low-cost component of a comprehensive benefits package—with a big impact on your employees’ financial and physical wellness.

Why offer group vision insurance?

Millions of Americans manage vision problems that affect their productivity and overall health. Vision care not only helps with existing vision problems; it also contributes to prevention and early detection of other health issues, like diabetes and hypertension.

And because group vision insurance is an important part of a complete benefits package, it can support your efforts to attract and retain great employees too.

How does group vision insurance work?

We offer a variety of vision insurance solutions to choose from. You can pay all, part, or none of your employees’ benefits depending on your needs and goals.
