How do traditional corporate sponsored “vision plan” work ?

First of all: Vision plans offered to your company are not “insurance”. They are not regulated by the New Jersey State Department of Banking and Insurance (DOBI). Vision plans are forms of “pay for a discount” program which is very costly to you and your staff.

How do traditional corporate sponsored “vision plans” work ? When your company selects a “vision plan” for your staff, you are essentially purchasing a discount rate for a very basic eye exam and a percent discount off eyeglasses at an area provider. In so many words, you and your staff are spending a substantial amounts of money to be eligible for a discount on elevated pricing.

Corporate or retail store based vision plan, offers a questionable discount on products that are marked up significantly. An example, CraftyLens will mark up a frame to i.e. $350 and then discount it 30% to $245 to the vision plan patient. If that same patient came into the store without the vision plan, they would have been charged $245 for the same frame. The “vision plan” patient has bought a discount on an item that really was never discounted. In essence, the cost paid by the patient using the “vision plan” is the same as the “retail price” the store would have charged normally.

The way most vision plans are presented to the human resource director is based on the basic frame and lens options. This makes the program appear to be a highly discounted program until the additional co-pays for itemized options are determined. Once the co-pays are itemized and charged to the patient, the equivalent discount off the standard retail price is approximately 30% plus the annual premium. In so many words, the employee is paying for a discount. Why????

What happens with the premium your employee pays each month ? The employee or employer pays a premium, let’s say $15 to $20 per employee per month or $180 to $240 per individual per year. This purchases a very basic or routine eye exam which does not include a full ophthalmic evaluation when the patient is at risk of diabetic, hypertensive or vascular related eye disease, cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration or other eye health problems. The routine wellness exam is defined by “ vision plans” as a screening exam only, not comprehensive.

In reality, the “vision plan” pays the provider only a very small amount of the $180 to $240, the patient is required to pay substantial co-pays on exam and eyeglasses or contact lenses. The only person making money on the deal are the administrators at the company whom owns the vision plan.

The benefit of any vision plan program is that it facilitates the employee and their family to seek wellness – eye health care, a very important entry point into the overall health care system. is simply offering your company an alternative.


FYI: Luxottica (Italy) owns Luxottica Eyewear, but also the vision plan called EyeMed and also owns LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Sears Vision Centers, Target Vision Centers, and BJ’s Vision Centers.
