As an expert in employee benefits you know that rising health care costs are in the forefront of every client’s mind.
Employers and employees alike are finding it ever more difficult to pay for health insurance premiums. Employers cannot afford to absorb the double digit premium increases and are forced to cut benefits and pass on more cost to employees. Employees are faced with increased premium contributions, increased deductibles, higher or eliminated co-pays, and greater out of pocket expenses. Something has got to give!
We can’t solve the health care crisis but we can make it better for both employers and employees.
1-800MD helps solve two of health care’s greatest problems, access to care and the cost of care. For most of us it is difficult to find readily accessible health care for acute care medical needs. Seeking care for these kinds of aliments in the ER, Urgent Care or waiting for a PCP office visit is not only inconvenient and time consuming, it is expensive.
1-800MD provides access to the most convenient and least expensive care available.
