Why many Wisconsinites don’t have vision insurance

Some employer-sponsored health insurance plans don’t include vision coverage, or offer vision insurance only as an add-on (with a bigger premium).

Individual vision insurance plans are available, but they usually require a 12-month commitment paid up front. With many of these plans, patients still have to pay out of pocket for part of the cost of an eye exam, glasses, or contact lenses. For most people, it just doesn’t make sense to pay $15-$20 a month for vision insurance (plus enrollment fees and copays).
