Sixty-one million adults are at high risk for serious vision loss, costing U.S. businesses $48 billion in lost worker productivity per year, states a column by Employee Benefit News. Yet, according to the National Eye Institute, most employers don’t include eye care as part of their benefits package.
At that cost – and with the added benefit of promoting better eye care to your employees – it pays dividends to have the right vision plan. With MedBen VisionPlus, you can put together an inexpensive vision package that encourages regular exams and corrective eyewear.
But vision benefits also promote overall health benefits. By examining blood vessels in the eyes, optometrists can detect early signs of chronic conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. And, early detection is key for good prognosis and lower incurred costs to a health plan.
