Vision Care May Be Part Of Covered California Soon

Love it or hate it, Covered California is here and is likely to stay for a while. One thing that is missing is vision care for adults. But soon primary vision care may be a stand alone component of the health care exchange if Sacramento based VSP has anything to do with it.

“VSP, frustrated with its inability to offer adult vision care as a stand-alone benefit through Covered California, is backing an effort to establish a separate vision care marketplace linked to the exchange website,” According to The Sacramento Business Journal.

The start up costs for this program would be around $250,000 and VSP with other vision plans would foot the bill so no money comes from state funding.
