We live in an era of convenience, and the demand for convenience is high and growing rapidly in 2017. According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, various on-demand services are attracting a total of more than 22.4 million consumers annually. Telemedicine is part of this rapid growth in on-demand services. This creates an incredible opportunity for brokers to add a new revenue stream to their agency, while staying relevant in the eyes of their groups by providing cutting edge services. For this reason, we’ve created a telemedicine guide with valuable resources for brokers.
It’s no secret that healthcare costs are skyrocketing and medical plans don’t cover what they used to. Uncertainty around the ACA, higher premiums and deductibles, plus growing out-of-pocket costs have brokers and employers looking for new money-saving solutions. The new Ease and freshbenies partnership gives brokers and employers real cost-saving tools – at affordable prices they want with the flexibility they need.
Ease and Plushcare are working together to bring increased telehealth access to brokers and employers across the country. Committed to providing options for one of the fastest-growing healthcare services, brokers and employers using Ease now have the ability to add telehealth with Plushcare to their benefit offerings.
The United States health care conversation often focuses on improving access to quality care. It’s from this discussion that we’ve seen many ideas and services brought to the forefront, including telemedicine. Now legal in 48 states and the District of Columbia, the number of patients using telemedicine is expected to reach 7 million by 2018. The clear increase in demand for the service signals the need for brokers to include telemedicine options in their employer offerings. Recognizing this, Ease and Call a Doctor Plus are excited to announce their new partnership.
