Support stand-alone vision plans

-A A +A

Ninety percent of vision care is administered through stand-alone vision plans, which benefit 100 million people
nationwide.  Vision Service Plan benefits all employees of Los Alamos National Laboratory.   The American Optometric Association (AOA) lobbied against stand-alone vision plans in the Exchanges, saying that only those vision plans bundled with medical plans should be allowed as this represents “integrated care.”
 The California Health Insurance Exchange, which is reconsidering its stance against stand-alone vision plans,  acknowledged that only allowing bundled vision plans would significantly limit consumer choice and competition.  The American Dental Association lobbied to include both stand-alone dental plans and dental plans bundled with medical plans, consistent with their support of “robust competition and consumer choice” among dental plans.  Governor O’Malley of Maryland signed legislation to allow stand alone vision plans in their Exchange, supporting the “consumer’s right to choose either a stand-alone vision plan or a vision plan as an endorsement to medical.”
