Primary Vision Care Services (PVCS) is a successful Oklahoma small business
corporation that provides a unique vision care benefits plan "VisionAdvantage"
in Oklahoma and other nearby states. It is a standalone or enhancement vision
care plan that offers unlimited eye care services and wholesale vision eyewear.
The VisionAdvantage Plan is provided through a cooperative approach. The answer
to "why does a cooperative approach to top quality vision care work?" is so easy
that it often appears "too good to be true." Simply put, the PVCS concept works
because it eliminates the more pressing frustrations while providing for the
most basic needs of employers, employees, and service providers.
The employer is able to offer quality vision care at a reasonable cost at
minimal administrative expense. The employer may choose to fund the premium
fully or partially, or to offer to the employee through payroll deduction. The
PVCS employer service contract is short, concise and written in clear business
terms. Once under contract, the employer provides PVCS with the first month's
payment and an initial listing of eligible employees. After that, all that is
required is a monthly payment against submitted invoice and updates to employee
eligibility. Clean, simple, direct administration is a key element of the
organization's overall benefit plan.
The employee and family have a choice of local optometrists who meet the
stringent PVCS selection criteria of service quality and plan accountability.
There are no limitations to the frequency of office visits or quantity of
covered services obtained. There is no requirement for time-consuming
consultations, complex forms or other impediments to arranging for needed vision
care services – just call and make an appointment with a local PVCS provider.
Exams are at no additional cost and materials such as glasses
or contact lenses are obtained at "wholesale prices."
The participating optometrist is able to work with each patient in an
unconstrained environment. The PVCS plan places virtually no limits on its
cooperating optometrists as to examination procedures, extent of testing, course
of treatment, or selection of supporting laboratories, etc. It enables an
independent optometrist, through participation in this unique cooperative, to
continue to provide professional, personalized care under a compensation plan
that is simple to administer yet pays a reasonable fee for his/her expertise.
