Exchange Proposes to Offer Stand-Alone Vision Plans to Individuals

In August, California Health Benefit Exchange decided that stand-alone vision insurers could sell coverage to small businesses but not to individuals. Facing protests from VSP and a smaller Rancho Cordova eye-care insurer, Superior Vision Holdings, the agency promised last month to revisit the issue. On Friday it offered up its changes, reports theĀ Sacramento Bee.

In a memo to the board, staffers proposed letting stand-alone companies sell eye-care coverage to adults. They also proposed letting those companies sell vision coverage to children as well, but the agency first needs clarification on a wrinkle in the new federal law.
