Bismark, ND (PRWEB) July 18, 2013
Online USA Doctors, the novel telemedicine portal that has just been launched, is already on its way to provide long-term and sustainable solutions to some of America’s most pressing health care problems.
This portal offers many diagnostic and treatment services that seek to revolutionize the U.S. health care sector by making medical help readily accessible and financially feasible. Online USA Doctors has also fabricated an array of alternatives for traditional health care coverage plans to help employees access high-quality care facilities even in an environment of rising costs.
According to a report published in The New York Times, employees will now have to pay a rising share of their health care costs as compared to their employers. Right now, they are paying 42 percent more on their health coverage plans than what they used to spend just five years ago. This is in sharp contrast to the 32 percent increase in the costs borne by employers for their workplace individual health insurance plans. These are the findings of a survey carried out by Towers Watson and the National Business Group on Health among close to 600 large employers in the United States who cumulatively employ about 11 million workers.
The above-mentioned survey has revealed more disturbing findings. About 80 percent of the respondents in the survey stated that they intend to shift more of the burden of health care costs on their employees over the next three years. This means that employees will have to pay higher premiums on their personal health insurance plans in the coming years. With yearly salaries increasing by less than two percent, rising health care premiums have already eaten into the employee take-home pay and will make more upsetting inroads in the near future.
In such a grim scenario, Online USA Doctors has invoked a host of alternatives to conventional health insurance options to suit the needs of both individuals and families of varying sizes. For instance, the Individual Plan costs only $29.99 while the Couple Plan costs $59.99. The Family Plan by Online USA Doctors costs a maximum of $99.99. By signing up for these medical plans, Online USA Doctors enables employees to save on their health care coverage without compromising on the quality of care they can receive. What is more, by making these plans available, Online USA Doctors has also provided a breather to all those employees who had dropped out of the health insurance net owing to rising premium costs.
Apart from making available the aforementioned health care plans, Online USA Doctors also seeks to make medical care affordable and readily accessible to all. The online doctors on this telemedicine portal provide prompt and comprehensive answers to health questions posted on the site. What is more, the doctors also make personalized recommendations of pharmaceutical-grade supplements. The health questions hotline and the online medical advice provided by Online USA Doctors thus spares patients the need and the ensuing expenses of having to find a doctor as well as actually or possibly having to visit that doctor for treatment.
Online USA Doctors has ushered in unique and effective solutions to counter the problem of rising employee health care costs in the United States and has given them financially feasible alternatives to traditional health coverage policies.
