Why get a vision plan? Think of vision insurance as a fitness program. You go to the gym to get in shape, which helps prevent weight gain, and ensures your body stays fit and healthy. In the same way you get regular eye exams to ensure all 2 million working parts of your eyes are “in-shape”, healthy and sharp.
Vision Insurance 101
Our eyes are one of our most precious organs, and we only have two, so proactive protection and care is key to maintaining these vital organs! Particularly for children, they don’t yet know how beautiful the world is through perfect vision, it is our responsibility as parents and caretakers to be in-tune with the world through their eyes. On the flip side, as we age our eyes do as well, and thus the frequency for vision checks increases exponentially.
Isn’t it better to prepare for the “what if’s” From routine eye exams to coverage for contacts and frames, and even discounts for vision laser surgeries, Apollo is focused on finding you the best vision insurance plans to fit your life. We boast premier relationships with all major carriers so we’re able to take the guesswork out of making a decision, it’s our pleasure to do the work for you.
Waiting Periods with Vision Insurance
There are a number of different vision insurance plans. Some of them allow you to start using your benefits right away, while others require you to wait up to 30 days. These waiting periods are designed to prevent people from signing up for an insurance policy and then later need expensive eye care. Other vision plans, however, do not require any waiting periods. Instead, you can schedule an appointment for an eye exam right away.
The decision to purchase vision insurance is not necessarily an easy one. Neither is it a good deal unilaterally, so you should always do the math and find out what your vision care needs are before committing to an insurance plan. The best option for you may be to take out a plan that will cover just eye exams. This way, your premium won’t increase if you have a pre-existing condition.
