Vision insurance: A look at employee impact

A well-designed employee benefits package can help boost loyalty, drive employee engagement and encourage employees to stick around. One study found that 75 percent of workers who place a high value on their company’s benefits want to stay with their employer for at least five years. That compares with just over half (53 percent) of those with a lower perceived value.1

Well-designed vision insurance is a key component of employee benefits packages. Employees with such coverage tend to use their benefits for regular eye exams, which can uncover early signs of chronic conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes. Such timely detection can lead to healthier outcomes and lower costs.

J.D. Power recently released its 2018 Vision Plan Satisfaction Report℠, collecting responses from more than 1,000 vision plan participants nationwide and measuring customer satisfaction based on five factors: communication, plan coverage, plan cost, customer service experience, and claims and reimbursement experience. UnitedHealthcare Vision’s cumulative score was tied for the highest amongplans measured; this marked the fifth time in six years the company has scored the top spot.
