Individual Vision Plans

Introduction

Millions of Americans go without vision insurance every year, and as a result they often put off necessary eye care. This can lead to more expensive procedures and treatments in the future. If you live in Washington state and don't have vision insurance, it's important to understand your options.

Individual Vision Plans

When it comes to vision insurance, there are two types of plans: individual and employer-sponsored. Individual vision plans are those that are purchased by the individual, as opposed to being offered through an employer.

There are a few key differences between individual and employer-sponsored vision plans. The first is that individual plans usually offer a wider range of coverage options. This means that you can tailor your plan to better suit your needs.

Another key difference is that employer-sponsored vision plans are typically less expensive than individual plans. This is because employers usually subsidize the cost of vision insurance for their employees. Typically you can also get richer benefits through employer-sponsored plans than individual plans. 

If you're self-employed, it might be possible to get an employer-sponsored plan, typically with a minimum of ten employees. If you don't have that many employees, then an individual vision plan is a great option.
