Product: Vision Enhancements – Retinal Imaging & Additional Diabetic Benefit
Delta Dental of Wisconsin is excited to announce benefit enhancements to our DeltaVision plans.
Effective January 1, 2017, retinal imaging and a diabetic eye care benefit will be added to all fully insured DeltaVision plans that include exam coverage, with no impact to rates. These benefits align with DDWI’s commitment to employee wellness and overall health.
Retinal imaging is an alternative to dilation during an exam. It provides a high-resolution image inside the eye and can help with early detection of serious eye conditions such as glaucoma, high blood pressure, and cancer, and will be available to members at the same frequency as exams. This covered benefit will have a member responsibility of no more than $39. According to EyeMed, members are more likely to choose retinal imaging over dilation.
Additional eye care benefits will also be available for members with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. The enhancement allows for an additional exam and diagnostic testing to monitor signs of any diabetic ocular changes. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in adults; early detection, timely treatment, and appropriate follow-up care of diabetic eye disease can protect against vision loss.
DDWI will be communicating these additions to our current customers in the coming weeks.
These enhancements can also be added to ASO accounts. If you have questions about the additions, or want to learn more, please contact Betsy Vinopal at Betsy.Vinopal@deltadentalwi.com, or call 715-343-7648.
