Offering dental and vision coverages is about more than healthy eyes and teeth… it helps detect potentially catastrophic conditions early, too.
- HealthDay News: “Researchers found that older adults with the eye disease retinopathy were at increased risk of having a stroke, as well as possible symptoms of dementia.”
- Medical News Today: “A study has found that people with active periodontitis, or gum disease, have a greater risk of experiencing major cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks and strokes.”
Providing MedBen VisionPlus and MedBen PreceDent as part of your plan greatly improves your employees’ chances of good health. In addition to heart disease and stroke, regular dental and vision checkups can reveal the onset of diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol.
VisionPlus and PreceDent are available as standalone products or as part of a comprehensive benefits package. Call us at 888-627-8682 to learn more.
