1 Simple Way to Save Money on Healthcare

2012-08-05 12.21.43Imagine you’re on a family vacation at the beach.

One morning you get up and one of your kids isn’t feeling well. Given this child’s history and symptoms, you’re pretty sure it’s an ear infection.

So what do you do?

The normal thing to do, of course, is to kill half a day or more waiting in an urgent care center to see a doctor – and you’ll spend $150 or so for your trouble.

But you do something different.

A Better Alternative

You make a simple phone call to arrange a conversation with a doctor in the same state.

No problem. 20 minutes later you get a call from a doctor (or a video chat if you prefer). After a short consultation the doctor calls in a prescription to a pharmacy 10 minutes away.

You got what you needed for your child without blowing the whole day. And you didn’t pay a thing.

Telemedicine is a fast-growing healthcare solution that families (and employers) nationwide are adopting.

My family is one of them.

Why You Should Consider Telemedicine

Telemedicine - talking to a doctor w a tabletIn reality, telemedicine is not just useful when you’re out of town. It can come in really handy at home too.

You get access to a doctor in your state 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

(Think that could come in handy in the middle of the night? We all know kids get sick on nights and weekends!)

That doctor is even able to write prescriptions for you when appropriate.

The American Medical Association says that 70% of doctor office visits and 40% of ER visits can be handled via telemedicine.

When you utilize the service, you pay nothing. No copays.

You get access to the service for only $19.95/month (that covers your entire family.) And there are no contracts, so you can drop it if you decide you don’t want it.

We genuinely think this is something all of our clients should at least consider. Like I said — I have it for my family (and we’ve used it).
