Dental and Vision Insurance
How job seekers rank the desirability of employment benefits can tell us a lot about people’s priorities in general. In 2017, Harvard Business Review shared the results of a study that looked into this issue. Their top findings are not too surprising. In addition to health insurance, people value dental and vision insurance very highly.
“As part of our study,” the researchers reported, “we gave 2,000 U.S. workers, ranging in age from 18 to 81, a list of 17 benefits and asked them how heavily they would weigh the options when deciding between a high-paying job and a lower-paying job with more perks.”
A whopping 88% of the study respondents said they would give better health, dental and vision insurance “some consideration” (34%) or “heavy consideration” (54%) when making a job choice.
Affordable Dental and Vision Insurance
A dental and vision insurance bundle is not that hard to find. What many people don’t know, however, is that you don’t need to land a peach of a job to have access to this desirable pair. In addition, the relatively low cost of coupling the two may come as a surprise.
What can you do if dental and vision are not included in your job’s benefits package? Well, like millions of Americans, you can purchase these types of coverage for yourself and your loved ones.
Vision and dental insurance packages are available from a number of insurance companies. Two popular plans available from DentalInsurance.com include the Dental Gold bundles from Delta Dental.
For as little as a $15 copay every 12 months, these plans include a WellVision Exam from a VSP Doctor that focuses on eye health and overall wellness. These plans also include prescription glasses discounts, as follows:
- Lenses: 20% discount when a complete pair of glasses is purchased
- Frames: 20% discount when a complete pair of glasses is purchased
- Contacts: 15% discount off the contact lens fitting and evaluation exam

The Importance of Dental and Vision Insurance
Life insurance plans and other types of insurance coverage are typically intended to help people after mishaps. However, dental and vision insurance are more proactive in nature. They are designed to help you stay as healthy as you can be.
Many people don’t seek proper preventative dental and vision treatment due to the out-of-pocket costs. Eye and dental exams can be expensive. Having a good eye care plan and dental coverage can help keep both your health and your budget on track.
