About Avesis

About Avesis

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.

The Avesis Network of vision care providers

The Avesis network of vision care providers offers its clients access to a network of carefully selected, screened and credentialed vision care providers.

Whether you are an insured carrier, self-insured company, health care provider or a company who wants vision benefits for its employees, savings are possible because our network providers agree to provide vision care at negotiated fees. The network assures savings whether it is used as a Discount Plan (stand-alone product of negotiated or discounted fees) or in conjunction with a self-insured or fully insured product as an in-network Preferred Provider Organization.

Avesis commits to member satisfaction. Participating Optometrists and Ophthalmologists must meet our specific credentialing standards, including licensing, and board status. Our trained customer service representatives provide answers when you need them. Furthermore we monitor and analyze complaints to insure that you and your employees are satisfied.
