VSP Delays Filling New Jobs Amid Dispute With Exchange
On Friday, Vision Service Plan of Rancho Cordova said that it will fill 100 new temporary jobs but will delay filling 150 new permanent positions until a dispute with the California Health Benefit Exchange is resolved. In August, the exchange board voted not to allow stand-alone vision plans to be sold to individual customers in the exchange. Following the decision, VSP filed a protest with the board saying that most state residents receiveÂ vision insurance from a stand-alone company and that it was considering relocating to another state. Last month, the board indicated that itÂ plans toÂ reconsider its decision.
