The head of Rancho Cordova-based VSP Vision Care says there's a problem with the health coverage you can get under the Affordable Care Act.

VSP President Jim McGrann tells KFBK eye care coverage can be found via Covered California, but it's only for children.

"Adults do not have access to vision care coverage," McGrann said. 

He says eye exams should be a basic of health care.

"Our network doctors are the first to detect diabetes, 34 percent of the time, hypertension, 39 percent of the time, and high cholesterol, 62 percent of the time," he said. 

McGrann says VSP is talking with Covered California about adding adult eye coverage, but nothing has changed, so far.
