Our History - The Founding of the NAVCP 

Managed Vision Care is a rapidly growing industry in the United States. Representatives from five national companies in the industry met to discuss the need for a trade association. Their discussion identified several purposes for a trade association including:

  • A forum for the exchange of information
  • A unified voice representing the industry
  • Improving quality in Managed Vision Care
  • Providing input and perspective in credentialing and development of standards

At this meeting held on November 7, 2002, the representatives of the five companies agreed that a trade association was needed and proceeded to establish the National Association of Vision Care Plans. NAVCP was incorporated on December 23, 2002. The five founding companies are Cole Managed Vision, Davis Vision, EyeMed Vision Care, Spectera, and Superior Vision Services.

The founding Officers and Directors for the NAVCP are:

Mr. Tom Davis
Executive Vice President, Spectera

Vice President
Mr. Rick Corbett
President, Superior Vision Services

Vice President Medical Affairs
Dr. Carl Moroff
Executive Vice President and COO, Davis Vision

Mr. Kevin Hassey
Vice President and General Manager, EyeMed Vision Care

Mr. Steve Holden
President, Cole Managed Vision

The Officers of NAVCP engaged the services of Stephen L. Ingram, CAE, to assist in the development of the Association and to serve as the first Executive Director.

During the first quarter of 2003, officers and staff contacted Managed Vision Care companies that are national in scope to introduce them to the NAVCP and its purposes. Three companies joined the founding members for the formal announcement of the Association. These companies were National Vision, Inc., Opticare, and Vision Benefits of America. The NAVCP made its formal announcement as a new trade association in April 2003.
