VSP® Vision Care Tests Flexible Eyewear Benefits in Four States
VSP EasyOptions Empowers VSP Members to Customize Coverage
Rancho Cordova, Calif., January 30, 2013 – VSP® Vision Care has introduced a new plan enhancement that gives members more power and flexibility when purchasing eyewear. VSP EasyOptions gives members and their dependents their choice of added eyewear benefits, including progressive lenses, photochromic lenses, or an increase in frame or contact lens allowance.
“VSP EasyOptions was created to give consumers greater flexibility and to better meet their individual eyecare needs,” said Melody Healy, Vice President of Product Strategy and Integration at VSP Vision Care. “VSP EasyOptions is unique in that it allows consumers to select the eyewear coverage that best fits their lifestyle, vision needs and pocketbook while consulting with their eye doctor.”
The customizable coverage can currently be purchased directly by individuals or families through yourvsp.com and is available on a limited basis in Arizona, North Carolina, Ohio and Washington.
“As we continue to evaluate options that meet the unique needs of our members, our hope is that VSP members see value in this new product and that we can offer customizable plans to both individual and group policies,” said Healy.
Benefit managers and brokers can learn more by calling (800) 216-6248 and VSP doctors can get more information by calling (800) 615-1883.
