Benefits of Group Dental and Vision
Why Offer Group Dental and Vision Insurance?
In a Glassdoor survey, 60% of respondents said they strongly consider benefits before accepting a position.1 Similarly, a survey from America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) stated that 56% of respondents identify employer-provided coverage as a key factor keeping them at their jobs.2
In today’s competitive job landscape, it’s more important than ever for employers to consider offering additional health benefits. Business owners and corporate decision-makers have to weigh their options, taking into account financial implications, employee satisfaction and the potential for a healthier workforce.
Plus, there’s considerable overlap between dental, vision, and overall physical health—especially for people with chronic conditions. Routine preventive care like eye exams and dental checkups can help prevent more serious health issues. That’s why CareFirst is committed to providing whole-health solutions.
If you already offer group medical insurance, you should consider including group dental and vision coverage. And with our Whole Health Savings discount, you could save on your medical premiums by bundling medical and specialty benefits.
