Virtual Doctors Help Men Avoid Rising Medical Health Insurance Deductibles With New, Male Orientated Doctor Health Service.
Date:9/4/2013

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 04, 2013

Virtual doctors help men avoid rising medical health insurance deductibles with a new, male orientated doctor health service that helps to solve health concerns and problems before costly doctor visits or emergency visits are necessary. Online USA Doctors utilizes a comprehensive health quiz "My Online USA Doctor Health Quiz" that is a subjective review of the organ system and helps to correct underlying health conditions quickly and effectively.

According to Medical News Today, men skimp on badly-needed primary and emergency care as a result of switching to high-deductible medical health insurance plans, usually paid for by an employer. The result of this choice ensures that men accumulate even greater health care costs with time as minor medical problems become major ones. Choosing an insurance plan, for men, can sometimes be a life-changing matter.

A study in the August issue of Medical Care, published by Lippincott Williams and Wilkins of Wolters Kluwer Health, observed 6,000 men over a period of two years who switched medical health insurance plans from a traditional HMO plan to plans with lower premiums but higher annual deductibles. These deductibles usually ranged from US$500 to $2,000.

The study found that in the first year after transition, men made 21% fewer emergency department visits for low- and intermediate-severity health disorders and 34% fewer visits for high-severity health disorders. In addition, they had a 24% reduction in hospitalizations. However, this trend was completely reversed the following year, when hospital admissions for male study subjects increased by 30%. The trends suggest that men may have chosen to cope with increasing deductibles by ignoring or delaying medical care, leading to more serious male health disorders later on.

Online USA Doctors offers comprehensive physician services in an environment known as telemedicine. Telemedicine utilizes the latest technology, video conferencing, online secure email and telephone to provide care where appropriate. Online USA Doctors has combined technology and revamped healthcare in a way that helps men reduce healthcare costs overall by identifying the root cause of the health condition with a variety of resources.

Such studies support the common-sense idea that increasing medical health insurance costs lead to delayed medical care. However, the implications for men in this case are even more significant. The results of the study suggest that men may have more success in managing their health if they join a medical health insurance plan that offers them the ability to consult with doctors on a regular basis and for a flat fee. Many male health problems, such as heart problems, thyroid problems, inability to maintain erections, and other health disorders, are easily diagnosed and managed with routine primary care.

Virtual doctors / Online USA Doctors offer a highly effective answer to these problems. The virtual doctor industry uses phones, websites, e-mail, webcams and other communications technologies to care for patients who are not in the same location as the medical provider, for a fraction of the cost. Through video or phone consultations, physicians diagnose illnesses and have the freedom to order laboratory tests, prescribe medication, or make a referral to a local physician for follow-up care when necessary.

The virtual medicine industry, or telemedicine, is projected to increase to $27.3 billion in 2016, up from $11.6 billion in 2011. There are a wide variety of virtual medicine firms, such as OnlineUSADoctors.com, one of the leaders in the industry. As one of the only full-service telemedicine alternative platforms available in the U.S., it offers comprehensive health care by board-certified M.D.’s, including flexible hours, emergency services, unlimited e-mail access, and exclusive alternative health supplements for a low flat monthly rate, with a $0.99-per-consult rate for e-mail questions.
