Delta Dental of New Mexico Adds Free VSP® Vision Care Discount Vision Program
to Small Group Plans

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., October 1, 2015 — Delta Dental of New Mexico (DDNM) has teamed up with the nation’s only not-for-profit vision care company, VSP® Vision Care, in order to provide a free discount vision program with all Small Group Pool (SGP) dental plans. SGP plans are designed for organizations with 3–100 eligible employees. Effective today, enrollees in existing and new SGP dental plans can take advantage of immediate savings on common vision services such as eye exams, lenses and frames. The VSP Vision Savings Pass program is not an insurance plan—it is a discount vision program offering savings on eye care and eyewear.
“The benefits market can be difficult to navigate for all organizations, especially small businesses,” said Mike Wallace, Vice President of Business Development and Corporate Affairs at DDNM. “Our goal is to make it a little easier for benefits decision makers by offering them top-notch dental benefits, with the added bonus of a discount vision program from the leader in vision and eye care benefits, VSP.”
“We are excited to partner with Delta Dental of New Mexico and expand access to vision care, which is the most requested ancillary benefit behind dental,” said Jeff Everson, SVP GM Strategic Partnerships at VSP. “With over 2 million members already enrolled in the VSP Vision Savings Pass program, we are seeing increasing demand for this unique discount offer that provides real value and savings on a variety of vision services.”
Organizations who are interested in learning more about SGP dental plans may call DDNM at (800) 999-0963. DDNM can also tailor a dental benefits plan to large groups (more than 100 eligible employees), although the VSP discount program is only available for SGP plans.
Brokers interested in selling SGP plans may call DDNM at (800) 999-0963 or email
