Governor Asks Exchange to Allow Sale of Certain Eye Care Plans

In a letter to the California Health Benefit Exchange board, state Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones (D) urged officials to allow the sale of stand-alone vision plans to individual customers in the exchange, reports the Sacramento Bee. Jones wrote, “Allowing vision insurers to offer stand-alone coverage in the exchange’s individual market improves access to health care and promotes consumer choice.” VSP has delayed hiring 150 workers until the board comes to a final decision. Meanwhile, another eye care insurer, Superior Vision Services, filed a protest this week against the exchange board’s original decision.
