VSP(R) Vision Care, The Nation’s Largest Vision Benefits Provider, and United Benefit Advisors, Offer a Complimentary Webinar, “What You May Not Know About Vision”

Indianapolis, Ind., [Jan. 15, 2014] — With more than 80% of American adults requiring some form of vision correction, vision benefits are the most requested benefit after dental insurance, according to VisionWatch a study conducted by the Vision Council in June 2013. United Benefit Advisors and VSP, the world’s largest managed care company with over 60 million members, are hosting a webinar for HR professionals and employers titled, “What You May Not Know About Vision” on Thursday, Jan. 23, 2013 – 2 p.m. ET.

In the face of the Affordable Care Act, the most substantial change in decades to the US healthcare system, many employers are struggling to stay on top of health plan compliance while focusing on attracting and retaining employees, especially as the economy improves. Employee benefits packages that include vision insurance can help employers reach strategic goals, attract and retain employees, control health care costs, and increase productivity.

This webinar will show how a vision plan (even if offered as a voluntary benefit) can help employers by:

1. Enhancing the capability to detect chronic conditions early by focusing on employee wellness.
2. Saving your employees’ already constrained post tax dollars on a health service and product.
3. Developing higher productivity in the workplace.

VSP tracks patient data and recently participated in a study to quantify savings for employers to their overall costs for things like productivity and medical costs. Pat McClelland, Vice President of U.S. Commercial Accounts of VSP Vision Care, will reveal these findings and share what you need to know about vision plans to help organizations achieve success with their group health insurance offerings.
