Allsup Introduces Health Discount Program to Millions of People with Disabilities
Date:10/6/2008

lies access to a network of more than 500,000 physicians, practitioners and facilities nationwide, as well as online and mail-order providers. The program includes savings for certain medical, behavioral health, dental, vision and hearing care, as well as prescription drugs and health supplies, long-term care and alternative care services. Examples of potential savings include: a $72 savings on a $235 doctor's office visit; $5.40 savings on a $12.90 Amoxicillin prescription; $26 savings on a $70 dental cleaning; and $17 savings on a $57 eye exam.

"We know from speaking with people with disabilities that their health often suffers while they are awaiting SSDI because they have to choose between paying for food or electricity and getting the medical attention they need," said Gada. "It's an incredibly difficult position to be in and anything that can be done to help ease the financial burden is something we want to be able to offer to our customers."

This is underscored by findings from the Kaiser Disability Survey (2003), which concluded that two-thirds of uninsured individuals with disabilities reported postponing care and almost as many reported splitting pills, skipping doses or not filling a prescription to save money.

Gada pointed out that the Health Discount Program is not a traditional health insurance product. It is a cost-savings program. Allsup anticipates the program will be of greatest interest to individuals awaiting Medicare eligibility. Some also may choose to use it to complement their Medicare coverage once they become eligible, helping to further reduce out-of-pocket costs.
