Avesis Incorporated, a Delaware corporation, is a publicly traded company headquartered
in Phoenix, Arizona with regional sales offices located in Baltimore, Maryland, Boston
Massachusetts, Atlanta, Georgia, Phoenix, Arizona and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Avesis, founded in 1978, offers a national network of independent and retail chain
providers for its managed vision care programs.
The plans are designed to reduce sponsor and participant costs by delivering benefits
and services through Avesis' organized network of providers. Participating providers,
include Optometrists, Opticians and Ophthalmologists who have agreed to accept
significantly reduced fees for their services and products. These reduced fees are
passed on to sponsors and participants by way of fee-for-service discount programs and
fully funded managed care plans. Sponsoring organizations include BlueCross/BlueShield
plans, insurance carriers, HMO's, corporations, unions, TPA's and associations.
The growing market niche for Avesis Incorporated is based on two important trends now
taking place: the growth in various forms of alternate health care delivery systems and
the need for cost management of health care benefits.
The continued upward spiral in health care costs has challenged sponsors, providers and
payers of health benefits to deliver high quality care without collapsing under cost
overload. The Avesis benefits menu has been created to meet that challenge by making
available quality professional services at the lowest possible price.
