Colonial Life Offers New Vision Coverage
Employees have access to affordable vision plan though Superior Vision partnership
COLUMBIA, S.C. (Jan. 23, 2013) – Workers nationwide now have more convenient access to affordable vision insurance, thanks to a new partnership between Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company and Superior Vision. The partnership enables Colonial Life to enrich its benefits offering to employer groups across all industry segments.
The vision insurance includes comprehensive eye exams, eyeglass frame and lenses, contact lenses, a contact lens fitting exam and discounts on additional glasses and contacts. Employer groups may choose a full benefits package or a plan that includes glasses and contacts without the exam. Superior Vision has an industry-leading provider network of more than 48,000 ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians, and regional and national retail chain locations, including LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Wal-Mart Vision Centers, Target Optical, Sam’s Club, America’s Best and Visionworks. Employees can sign up for the vision plan as part of their regular workplace benefits enrollment and can pay premiums through convenient payroll deduction.
The vision coverage is a perfect fit with the voluntary financial protection benefits Colonial Life already offers, according to Amy Criswell, director of marketing programs for Colonial Life. “Vision coverage is an important employee benefit,” Criswell said. “Offering this coverage through the workplace allows employees to meet their needs, and those of their families, affordably and conveniently.”
“Our partnership with Colonial Life is a natural fit for us and showcases the similarities in values and business practices between our two companies,” said Rick Corbett, president and CEO of Superior Vision. “People want quality care coupled with convenient locations and service hours. Superior Vision has one of the country’s largest and most diverse provider networks, and shares Colonial Life’s focus on excellent customer service.”
Superior Vision has been in the managed vision care market for 20 years and serves millions of members and thousands of clients nationwide.
Other benefits of the vision plan employees may receive include:
- Discounts on many lens upgrades and additional pairs of glasses and contacts
- Online ordering and home delivery of most major brands of contact lenses
- Information and help on Superior Vision’s website
