For employers with 10 or more employees, incorporating vision benefits into your employee benefits program can be a high-value, low-cost way to enhance your employee benefits package, manage costs and promote employee productivity and satisfaction.
Vision benefits are valued by employees in companies of all sizes and do more to address employee health and productivity than just correcting vision problems and treating eye diseases.
Eye exams are an important part of overall wellness. They are the first step to correcting vision problems that can impact productivity. They also promote early detection of serious health problems like diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol - helping to reduce overall health care costs.1
MetLife's standard benefit plans are based upon research, market trends and industry benchmarks. They cover a full range of brands and technologies for lens options, protecting your employees and driving lower costs. Your workforce can also take advantage of discounts on non-prescription sunglasses, a second pair of glasses and more. Additionally, all plans include our Diabetic Awareness Program at no additional cost to you.
Customize and enhance your plan with supplemental benefits that help you target your employees' needs. There are seven options to choose from that address a wide range of vision conditions and preferences.
Your employees and their covered family members will get access to an extensive, high-quality network of ophthalmologists, optometrists and opticians. These providers work out of full-service private practice and retail chain locations, and offer a broad spectrum of eyewear options from classic styles to the latest designer frames.
Offering your employees vision benefits from a brand they know matters. When they feel confident in a carrier they are more likely to participate and be satisfied with their benefits.
MetLife Vision is available with flexible contributions from 100% employer paid to 100% employee paid to groups with 10 or more eligible employees. For more information about our vision product, please contact your MetLife representative.
