Why Provide Voluntary Vision Insurance?

Many families neglect eye exams or other important preventative services. This neglect may leave serious health issues undetected. The risks employees take - such as skipping vision exams - may produce claims in other areas. Claims drive premium increases - Medical Insurance, Workers Compensation and Disability Insurance plans can all be affected. Ultimately, groups must reduce risk in order to reduce costs. Our Vision Insurance partners, NIS and Ameritas Group, can provide a custom plan to fit your needs.

Why use SCSC's Partner, NIS and Ameritas Group, instead of purchasing this product on your own?

Because Cooperation Pays! Cost of insurance rises as risk increases. Large groups have a lower price because risk is spread over more people. As a member of SCSC, you are a part of a larger group and can take advantage of rates that have been specially negotiated for SCSC members.
