The VSP Vision/PECAA Strategic Partnership

Investing in the future of private practice.

            


VSP Vision™ and PECAA Join Forces to Invest in Private Practice

VSP Vision and Provider Eyecare Association of America (PECAA) are joining forces to help secure the future of independent eye care.

The acquisition of PECAA, a leading doctor alliance group, is a strategic investment to support and empower the long-term success of private practice doctors and ensure private practice continues to be the primary choice of our 85 million members in the face of fierce competition in the market.

While PECAA will continue to operate independently and be led by doctors, our complementary organizations share a vision and together we will work to provide the best solutions for all private practice doctors and identify opportunities to increase value for practices participating in the VSP Vision Premier Program.
