The Colorado health exchange builders have made a formal decision to look into offering users some kind of access to vision plans.
The California exchange builders are considering a vision plan alliance proposal at the working-group level.
Vision plan sales efforts have come up this month during board meetings organized by Connect for Health Colorado and by the Covered California exchange.
The Colorado exchange board has adopted a recommendation that calls for the Colorado exchange staff to look into offering access to insured, stand-alone vision plans as early as Oct. 1. The exchange would offer access by providing a website link to a separate stand-alone vision sales website.
“If at any time the time and resources related to this development compromises launch of the marketplace, we will delay this option,” according to a copy of the recommendation posted on the Colorado exchange website.
