SACRAMENTO, California--VSP has announced the launch of the Dental & Vision Savings Plan, administered by Careington International Corporation.
The new plan is available to individuals and families, providing discounts on dental and vision care as well as the option to pay on a monthly basis.
"The Dental & Vision Savings Plan is a great way for individuals and their families to receive high quality dental and vision care at an affordable cost," said Rob Lynch, VSP president and CEO. "VSP is excited to team up with Careington to deliver this new plan to consumers who might have otherwise thought dental and vision care was not a possibility for them and their families."
Consumers who enroll in the Dental & Vision Savings Plan can save 20 to 50 percent on dental services and 15 to 35 percent on eye exams and materials. Dental services range from general cleanings, fillings and crowns, while vision coverage includes eye exams, glasses, contact lens fitting and evaluation, laser vision correction and more.
"We are thrilled to partner with VSP," said Barbara Williams, president and CEO of Careington. "This plan will allow us to better bridge the supplemental health-care benefit gap, and help reduce the financial burden placed on consumers to provide dental and vision care to their families."
Enrollees also have the opportunity to join the Savings Plus Plan for just $2 more per month, which features discounts on prescription drugs, chiropractic and alternative care, hearing care and aids, access to a 24-hour nurse hotline, and long term care.
Members of the plan are eligible to apply for a Dental & Vision Savings Plan credit card to manage health-care related expenses. The card is issued by UMB Bank, n.a., in Kansas City, Mo.
"There are several benefits with this card payment option that create a higher level of convenience and ease for the consumer," said Dennis Triplett, president of UMB Healthcare Services. "The selective authorization feature helps cardholders manage payments by limiting card usage to health-care expenses."
The Dental & Vision Savings Plan is available nationwide, except in California, Florida, Illinois, Montana, New Hampshire, Vermont, Guam and Puerto Rico.
