There is a strong market demand for stand-alone vision insurance, and we’ve seen a very positive response to these plans since our vision launch in August. As we continue to partner with reputable brands, like Nationwide, this trend will only continue.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) December 01, 2015
Live Very Well is excited to announce that Nationwide® is the latest carrier to offer individual vision insurance plans on LiveVeryWell.com. The multi-carrier insurance exchange platform offers individual vision and dental insurance with the unique ability to rate and review products, allowing consumers to compare, quote and match plans to meet their needs.
Beginning December 1, Nationwide’s plans, administered by Merchants Benefit Administration, will join some of the nation’s most-trusted carriers, including Direct Vision Insurance and Security Life Insurance Company of America, as a vision carrier on the online exchange. With the addition of these plans, Live Very Well’s vision insurance offerings will expand to four additional states—Colorado, Massachusetts, New York and Virginia. Available in a total of 48 states, these vision plans cover a variety of budget and benefit needs so consumers can easily find their best fit.
Live Very Well is an ideal solution for retirees, employers currently not offering employee benefits and independent, contract or part-time employees. With 1.65 million small business employers, over 10 million self-employed individuals, and 41.5 million seniors, the demand for simplified vision coverage has never been greater.
