Mutual of Omaha Introduces an Option for Customers to Add Vision Insurance Rider


OMAHA, Neb.—Mutual of Omaha has introduced a vision insurance option, which it says is part of an effort to provide individuals a more holistic approach to health care, according to an announcement Tuesday.

Mutual of Omaha, a leading Medicare supplement provider, said the vision insurance will be available solely as an optional rider to a dental policy, according to the announcement. The dental policy options—Mutual Dental Preferred and Mutual Dental Protection—offer differing coverage levels, deductible and premium amounts and are available to individuals ages 19-99.

In developing these new products, the company said it surveyed current and potential customers to assess their needs and ask about what types of vision and dental plans they would find valuable. This input was used to fine-tune the new plans, the company said.

“The dental and vision coverage options we introduced this month are a direct result of what our customers told us would serve them well,” Jeff Ganow, a vice president and actuary, said in the announcement. “Customers have counted on us as a Medicare supplement provider for more than 50 years. We hope these products can help round out coverage for our customers’ additional health care needs.”

As of Oct. 7, Mutual of Omaha’s dental and vision products are available for customers to purchase through licensed agents and brokers in 23 states, including New York, California and Florida, among others. For more information, visit
