VSP Neighbourhood Eyecare and the West Australian health insurer HBF have formed a partnership to increase the number of optometrists the insurer’s 900,000 members can visit to access savings.
The West Australian based health insurer is the second health fund VSP Neighbourhood Eyecare has partnered with. Medibank Private was the first in an arrangement that commenced in January 2013.
Rob Bransby, Managing Director of HBF said VSP Neighbourhood Eyecare was a perfect fit for the health insurer because both companies are “not-for-profit”.
HBF members who choose a VSP Neighbourhood Eyecare optometrist can select from a wide range of glasses where frames and lenses are fully covered by HBF. Those who choose a frame outside the covered range, receive a 20 per cent discount on the frame and lens, along with their benefit entitlement that can be used towards the purchase.
