About Us

Our Story

Your senses are essential, and we’re in the business of protecting them. Since 1978, we’ve provided vision, dental, and hearing health coverage to millions of Americans. And now, as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, we can do that with an even greater focus and commitment than ever before.

Our members are teachers and firefighters, accountants and bus drivers. Our clients are small and large businesses, school systems, and municipalities. We serve commercial and government health plan sponsors, unions, and TPAs. We’re here for you, too.

We’re all concerned about the spiraling costs of healthcare. But our programs are designed to reduce sponsor and member costs by delivering a custom program tailored to meet their needs. And our core values—accountability, empowerment, excellence, and integrity—help us to deliver high member and client satisfaction. Our retention rate is proof that we’ve achieved our goal.

Our History

Avēsis began in 1978 as a family-run business vested in protecting the vision, dental, and hearing health of Americans. And for nearly 40 years, that’s just what we’ve done.

Decades of experience as a national administrator of these essential healthcare programs have given us the unique experience and expertise to match exceptional products and providers—ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians, audiologists, and dentists—with the people who need them.

In January 2016, Avēsis joined the Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, a Fortune 250 global financial services company committed to providing individuals and businesses the financial guidance and protection they need. As one of the largest mutual life insurers for over 150 years, and a leading provider of employee benefits, Guardian brings the resources Avēsis can use to grow and expand our services across the country.

As a Guardian company, Avēsis now offers even greater flexibility, a more robust network of vision and dental care providers, and the most cost-effective benefit programs possible, especially as healthcare costs continue to soar.
