Let's Talk Open Enrollment!

OE Publicity Poll Thumbnail

It’s that time again! Open enrollment season is back, and so is our “Open Talk about Open Enrollment” national poll. For the third year, VSP conducted a survey to better understand people’s feelings and behaviors around the yearly benefits selection process.

Vision insurance is typically one of the quickest and least expensive benefit options to review and select. Enrolling is as easy as checking the box, especially knowing that once you’ve done so, you’re on your way to keeping you and your family’s eyes healthy.
