Vision Insurance Plans – Eyemed and VSP

Vision Insurance Plans like eyemed and vsp seem to be changing every day. For patients with eyemed, vsp, or any of the other similar vision benefit providers, it can be hard to keep up with all the changes that come your way.   If you are new to the eyemed plan, you may have noticed that your regular eye doctor (optometrist or ophthalmologist) is no longer on your list of approved providers.  You may also notice that most of the providers with which you are offered are located within a commercial setting (lenscrafters, sears, pearle vision, etc). This is because there has been a growing trend of contract negotiation issues with private practitioners and the management group at eyemed, that has lead to many private OD’s and OMD’s to drop the plan.

Although this is the trend that we here at Torrington Eyecare are seeing and experiencing, we have decided to continue on the eyemed panel for at least another year. We have come to this verdict based on the fact that economic times are hard for our patients and also for the companies who employ them.  This recessional period has forced business and government agencies to cut back on spending, especially on health care benefits. These changes have resulted in record numbers of patients in our area being sent to low cost vision insurance options such as eyemed and vsp. 

We feel that our patients’ vision and well being is too important to us, to simply drop your plans because of contractual issues. So if your insurance has changed and you are worried about no longer being able to see us, don’t worry, we are here for you.  If you are not currently our patient and your insurance has changed to eyemed or vsp and you current doctor is no longer rendering service to eyemed and vsp patients, we are always accepting new patients, so give us a call and we will work hard to earn your trust and friendship.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be happy to schedule you an appointment, as well as go over any plan benefit questions you may have. They can be reached at 860-482-4439 during the office hours listed at the bottom left of this page.  We look forward to seeing our old friends and our new ones!
