BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DentaQuest announced today that its full-scope vision program, eyeQuest, now reaches more than one million members. First implemented in 2009, the eyeQuest program has delivered its growth using the same time-tested approach to plan administration and service that has made DentaQuest’s dental product so successful.
“We’re thrilled to have hit this important milestone with eyeQuest, and we look forward to even more growth in the future,” said Steve Pollock, Chief Operating Officer of DentaQuest. “We couldn’t have done this without the hard work of our committed team of employees, who have made protecting and maintaining the visual health of our members a top priority.”
The eyeQuest product is currently provided in eight markets: Florida, Kentucky, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Washington, and Washington, D.C. Offering a full line of vision and eye care services, DentaQuest has earned a reputation as a dependable business partner for health care plans seeking a practical solution for vision program management. With a strong focus on prevention and administrative simplification, DentaQuest’s programs optimize patient outcomes while reducing overall health care costs.
DentaQuest made the decision to get into the eye care field five years ago to better meet the needs of health plan customers that prefer to purchase dental and vision benefits together. While DentaQuest’s main product line will continue to be high-quality dental plans, the addition of the eyeQuest product has been a way for DentaQuest to work even more closely with its health care partners to address their administrative needs for these specialized services while improving the overall health of their members.
DentaQuest’s vision and medical model includes a benefit covering periodic eye exams and eyeglasses, and an integrated medical and surgical benefit covering more advanced eye services.
“Our focus is on both broad access to eye care and prevention. It’s good for the long-term health of our members and for the long-term costs of the health plans that we partner with,” said Pollock.
DentaQuest is the third largest oral health enterprise in the United States. Along with its charitable DentaQuest Foundation and its educational DentaQuest Institute, its mission is to improve the oral health of all.
