Wauwatosa, Wisconsin – Superior Vision Services, Inc. (Superior Vision), a leader in managed vision care, and CarePlus Dental Plans, Inc. (CarePlus), a leader in quality group and individual dental plans in Wisconsin, today announced that the companies will begin providing customers with Superior Vision benefits alongside CarePlus dental benefits.
According to Thomas Luchetta, Vice President, Group Sales at Superior Vision, “The two companies have a long-standing relationship and a shared reputation for offering high-quality services to employers supported by extensive provider networks. This relationship will provide the convenience of both vision and dental benefits programs through a single distribution channel.”
James Schmitz, Director of Business Development at CarePlus, said, “Insurance brokers and employer groups are looking for a dental and vision solution from one source – and the Wisconsin market is underserved. By offering a mutual solution, we are responding to market demand and providing a valuable service to our customers and their members.”
The offering will feature the full range of benefits from both companies. CarePlus will focus on offering a collective dental and vision solution alongside its standalone dental offering, and Superior Vision will continue to offer standalone vision benefits to Wisconsin-based companies.
