Vision Benefits of America Joins Forces With Howell Benefit Services, Inc.

VBA to participate in HBS's newly released WEBSURANCE Trust and digital platform

Vision Benefits of America, Inc. (VBA), a commercial group benefits organization, today announced its participation with WEBSURANCE, a fully-insured health and welfare benefits trust.

"The WEBSURANCE platform offers unmatched quoting, case submission and plan administration features," said Matt Cuomo, Vice President of Sales at VBA. "Producers can leverage VBA's distinctive vision care plans and national provider network while enjoying the ease of WEBSURANCE." 

In conjunction with the Trust, WEBSURANCE offers a digital platform that enables producers to offer small to mid-sized employers superior level benefit plans, competitive pricing and extended rate guarantees. WEBSURANCE'S optimal market is groups with 2-100 employees, but there are no size limitations.

"Producers have the potential to reduce quoting expenses while increasing closing ratios," said Cuomo. "To make working with VBA even simpler, VBA is proud to have its new retail frame allowance available through the WEBSURANCE platform."

Alongside VBA, MetLife will offer group dental benefits to employers nationwide with products and plan designs typically found in the larger market.
