Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 19, 2013
Online USA Doctors revolutionized health insurance options by creating an exclusive method of delivering healthcare in a non-traditional way called telemedicine. Healthcare utilization or the frequency of doctor visits often can be handled by a doctor quickly without having the patient physically drive to a brick and mortar location to talk to a physician.
Online USA Doctors created a unique option to health insurance, or those without any insurance or with high deductibles. Online USA Doctors developed a subscription option that allows people to communicate with a doctor as frequently as they desire. Online USA Doctors conducts doctor consultations via video or telephone and offer nationwide lab testing, prescriptions and many other services and products all for the subscribers to utilize as often as they wish.
Employers who elect to offer their employees the Online USA Doctors Health Insurance add-on services will realize a $2,200 per employee savings annually through a reduction in emergency room visits, doctor brick and mortar visits and unnecessary tests and prescriptions.
Julie Wright, president of Online USA Doctors comments “our research has uncovered that we can literally drive health insurance rates down by driving down healthcare utilization if people are able to talk to a doctor same-day in the convenience of their home or work.”
When Obama said in March 2010, “after a century of striving, after a year of debate, after a historic vote, health care reform is no longer an unmet promise …”, he was issuing a clarion call for the U.S. medical profession to respond. Not all practitioners have been forthcoming. To date, urgent care services are still largely the preserve of mainly wealthier people.
Online USA Doctors is making a concerted effort to change this, by cutting out the inefficiencies that drain the current medical health insurance model. “We noted that medical diagnosis methodology hadn’t changed since the Middle Ages,” Dr. Shelton, medical director says. “It’s crazy the profession is still in the pre-Internet era.
Online USA Doctors subscription is offered with a low, monthly fee of $29.99 for individual health insurance alternative coverage and low as $59.99 for family. The monthly subscription entitles health insurance subscribers to ask the doctor questions as often as needed. The doctor responds to each question through a secure, online health charting system within the Online USA Doctors platform. All doctor advice is retained for future use. The subscriber can schedule a video or telephone doctor consultation at a time convenient for the subscriber. The doctor is able to order lab tests if needed (nationwide) and prescribe.
Carrisa from San Diego, California explains, “prior to joining Online USA Doctors, I would wait until my families’ health condition deteriorated as we just didn't have the funds to pay out of pocket for a doctor visit as our deductible is over $2,000 per person annually. Since joining Online USA Doctors, I have same day access to a doctor who is able to diagnosis and advice within the hour of my question submission. We've saved thousands with their health insurance alternative service and I believe my family is healthier as a result.”
