RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VSP® Vision Care, the nation's only not-for-profit vision care company, has partnered with Spry magazine, America's largest-circulation health and wellness publication, and SpryLiving.com to launch the "See Well & Be Well" sweepstakes. Accepting entries now through September 30, 2013, participants have a chance to win one of 10 free individual vision insurance plans for a year of coverage from VSP Direct® by visiting www.spryliving.com/VSPDirect. VSP Direct is VSP Vision Care's individual insurance product, offering high-quality vision benefits directly to consumers.
"Taking care of your vision isn't just about being able to see well – it also plays a huge part in your overall health routine," said Ken Stellmacher, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Individual Plans for VSP Vision Care. "A comprehensive eye exam can aid in early detection of conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure, allowing you to better manage health issues before they become a problem."
Individual vision insurance from VSP Direct includes coverage for an eye exam with a low co-payment, allowance for glasses or contacts, fully covered lens options with 20-25 percent off any non-covered options, and access to the largest doctor network in the industry – all backed by a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee. VSP Direct offers the lowest out-of-pocket costs in the industry and a typical annual savings of $227 a year.
"In the past, for consumers whose employers didn't offer vision coverage, their only options were to pay out of pocket or simply go without coverage," said Stellmacher. "With individual and family vision insurance plans, we've made affordable, high-quality vision care accessible in every state."
Each one-year plan being given away is valued up to $218.95. For more information or to enter the sweepstakes, visit www.spryliving.com/VSPDirect. To learn more about individual and family vision insurance plans from VSP Direct, please visit www.VSPIndividualPlans.com.
