About Us

Avesis offers a full array of vision care plans tailored to meet the needs of a diversified healthcare employee benefits and Medicaid/Medicare market. Our vision care product lines include stand-alone fully insured programs, ASO contracts, discount plans and turn-key, Private Label solutions.

Commercial, Medicaid and Medicare Health Plans:
Avesis has a growing network of over 25,000 carefully selected, screened and credentialed providers at over 10,000 locations nationwide.

Approximately 68% of our network consists of independent providers. Remaining 32% consist of national and regional chain providers.

How are we different from our competition:
Avesis offers unique plan options designed to fit the needs of any size organization. Our vision plan underwriting is straight forward, accepting groups with as few as 5 participants. All Avesis plans come with a 24 month rate guarantee, which gives our clients comfort in knowing their premiums are fixed for the first two years. Beginning in 2008, all new Avesis plans include a LASIK allowance. This addition to our core benefit gives the Avesis members more value and more choices in maintaining their vision care health.
