Versant Health is one of the leading managed vision care companies in the United States and today, serves more than 4.5 million members in Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC. Dedicated to whole-person health we collect, analyze and share data along the continuum of care to help our health plans identify and drive best practices for optimal outcomes and cost of care savings. For these reasons, and because Versant Health is focused solely on strategic partnerships, we are truly a “health plan’s vision care plan.”

At Versant Health, our vision is to become the most trusted managed eye health and vision care plan provider for members, clients, and eye care professionals within the industry. We distinguish ourselves from the competition by providing tremendous savings, the ability to offer product exclusivity, and years of experience and expertise in the managed vision care industry.

Our three complementary core services are designed to deliver exceptional, individualized care while managing eye care costs across the entire continuum.

  • Routine vision plans: Provide eye exams and corrective eyewear while promoting early detection and treatment of conditions.
  • Utilization management: Ensure your members get the proper care in the right place at the right time. Ensuring vision services meet strict criteria prevents fraud and abuse and protects the well-being of the member receiving care.
  • Medical claims review: See cost savings by eliminating reimbursement for unnecessary and duplicative procedures. Our Fraud, Waste and Abuse (FWA) Program rigorously applies both pre-payment and post-payment measures.

White Paper: Ocular Telemedicine as an Enhancement for In-Person Eye Care

During times of challenge and crisis, telemedicine is playing an increasingly important role in eye care delivery. This cultural shift to ocular telemedicine has been sped up by the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, with patients unable to easily access in-person care for non-emergencies. Our new whitepaper describes this paradigm shift but notes that in-person eye exams are still required in many cases.
