Aetna Vision Preferred Plan

Text on screen: Rick Tapnio. Retired Air Force. Current Aetna Employee. Aetna Vision Preferred Member.

Rick Tapnio: (00:03) What I love about the Aetna Preferred Vision Plan is choice, savings and convenience. That really narrows down the three most important things for myself and my family simply because we just, we didn't have that before on the plan that we had.

Text on screen: Vision plans can help keep an eye on your health.

Text on screen: John Lahr. Optometrist.

John Lahr: (00:20) Statistics show that close to four times as many people receive a comprehensive eye exam annually as compared to a physical. If they can't see that will drive them in to an optometrist or ophthalmologist to get their eye exam, maybe through a vision plan. We really look at the person in total as we're really trying to assess what's going on, not only with their eyes but what relates from their body into the eyes. Sometimes we can see it in the eye or maybe we're just looking for something that they gave us a hint on medication that we should be assessing, whether it be high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or even diabetes, both type one and type two.

Text on screen: Plans that fit your needs.

Text on screen: Sarah Marbach. Senior Business Consultant. Aetna.

Sarah Marbach: (01:01) One of the things that people most often ask is, "Which plan is going to be the best for me?" And there's no really easy answer to that question. So, that's really where it comes in, trying to focus in on what do you personally and your family need from a plan? When it comes to vision insurance, do you wear glasses? Do you wear contacts? Are you just going for your annual exam? What kind of extra features are you looking for in your plan? What's your budget like? All those types of things are going to be important factors when you're looking at different options. What's really great about Aetna's plans is that there's a plan for every type of need out there.

Text on screen: Savings

Rick Tapnio: (01:41) Without the cost savings from the Aetna Preferred Vision Plan, I would have paid hundreds more for these frames.

Text on screen: Convenience.

Rick Tapnio: (01:50) Being part of the Aetna vision plan truly allows myself to plan around my busy schedule, around my busy family schedule. I have children that are in school and when we have to make appointments for their eyecare, it usually was during work hours and it was really challenging to do that. But now I know that I can pick up the phone and make an appointment after 5:00 PM or 6:00 PM or on the weekends and make sure that my family's taken care of.

Text on screen: Choices

Sarah Marbach: (02:20) Our provider network is pretty large. We have over a hundred thousand providers nationwide, so you've got a really wide choice when it comes to what eye doctor you want to go see. We're constantly working to make sure that our benefits are top of the line for our customers.

Rick Tapnio: (02:34) I would absolutely recommend the Aetna Preferred Vision Plan to a friend or family, simply because it was the best choice for myself and my family. We looked around, you should too, and at the end of the day, you'll know it's the right one for you as well.
