Open season, part 2
Monday - 12/5/2011, 11:11pm EST
December 5, 2011 -- Join hosts Bob Leins and John Elliott, as they lead a discussion about the FEHBP open season.
In the first half of the show they talk about the SAMBA program, with Executive Director Walt Wilson and Deputy Executive Director Pam Cummings.
SAMBA is one of the original plans in the The Federal Employees Health Benefits Program. SAMBA is a not-for-profit organization located in Rockville, MD.
SAMBA offers two popular plans, High and Standard Option, along with a comprehensive Dental and Vision Care Plan.
Al Schubert, the vice president of managed care and health policy for VSP is the guest in the second half of the show.
VSP is the nation's largest not-for-profit vision benefits provider, covering more than 56 million Americans.
VSP Vision Care's two vision options provide a high level of coverage each year. This includes a yearly comprehensive eye exam as well as coverage for eyeglasses or contact lenses.
Without VSP, an exam and prescription glasses can cost more than $500. With VSP's coverage, members get low to no out-of-pocket costs and can save up to $400.
The VSP Vision Service Plan is one of three vision plans available to federal employees and is accessible through the official enrollment website for the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program at www.benefeds.com.
Federal employees can find access to all three plans at OPM's federal vision plan open season page at http://www.opm.gov/insure/vision/planinfo/index.asp.
