PARSIPPANY, N.J., Nov. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Delta Dental of New Jersey (DDNJ) is proud to announce it is teaming up with VSP® Vision Care, the only national not-for-profit vision benefits company, to launch DeltaVision®. This partnership will provide a convenient “one-stop shopping” experience for group vision and dental benefits. VSP will administer the fully insured plans, which will be sold in conjunction with DDNJ dental plans to businesses with at least two employees.
“We are incredibly proud to enhance our coverage options to include dental and vision benefits,” said Dennis Wilson, President and CEO of Delta Dental of New Jersey and Connecticut. “By introducing DeltaVision®, we are reinforcing our commitment to delivering quality service and supporting the health and wellbeing of our customers and clients. Dentists and optometrists are trained to detect numerous health conditions by observing early warning signs in the mouth and eyes. We hope this offering will lead to earlier intervention and better overall health for our customers.”
The plans—which will be available starting January 1, 2023—afford businesses the ability to package both dental and vision benefits conveniently and affordably and include the option to purchase glasses and contacts in the same calendar year. DeltaVision® will be offered to individual customers later in 2023.
“DeltaVision® was created exclusively for our Delta Dental customers,” Wilson continued. “VSP is well known for their best-in-class vision programs, making them the ideal complement to our dental program. When DeltaVision® is combined with your Delta Dental benefits, you get two great programs in one convenient and affordable package.”
DeltaVision® offers customers the largest network of participating eye doctors nationwide and innovative benefit programs that feature discounts on LASIK, additional pairs of glasses and more. Members can easily take full advantage of their benefits that include in-network savings, world-class customer service, and one-stop administration that provides both dental and vision bills from the same company.
The top priority for consumers choosing a vision plan is low out-of-pocket costs, according to independent research.
DeltaVision® is committed to meeting and exceeding expectations by delivering value, choice, and service, low member out-of-pocket costs, savings up to 40 percent off retail costs on lens enhancements after a copay, exclusive savings on a wide selection of frame brands and lens enhancements, and both wholesale and retail frame allowances. Additional coverage is also available for members with diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, or age-related macular degeneration. Robust plans feature a variety of copayment options, allowances, and frequencies to fit any group’s needs.
The New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance (DOBI) recently approved DDNJ’s application to offer vision coverage. DeltaVision® was first launched in Connecticut in 2021.
