As both a complement to medical insurance and a stand-alone program, CARExpress has established an affordable membership program of medical benefits to help individuals and groups reduce their healthcare costs.
ÂCARExpress enables individuals to design their own medical benefits package to meet their specific needs,Â said David Daniels, CEO. ÂMore than 72% of the nation's practicing doctors and more than 90% of the nation's pharmacies participate in the CARExpress network. Individuals are eligible for reduced costs while visiting the same doctor, simply by enrolling in the CARExpress medical benefits network.Â
To take advantage of the CARExpress network, members take their CARExpress card to any participating provider in the program, receive savings on the services, and pay the reduced amount at the time of service. Since CARExpress is not insurance, there is no paperwork, no waiting for claims to process, and everyone is eligible for the medical benefits, regardless of age, occupation, or health condition. CARExpress also has many specialty medical benefits and services for newborn babies, children, and elderly persons.
CARExpress works by linking groups of consumers to obtain discounts on medical benefits and services. CARExpress negotiates discounts on their members' behalf with health care providers, reducing the overall cost of medical care for their members.
With over one million participating providers in the CARExpress medical benefits network nationwide, each member has the opportunity to save up to 50% on most healthcare costs whenever they use the CARExpress card. Unlike insurance, there are no restrictions on access to medical services due to pre-existing conditions. CARExpress welcomes all persons with uninsurable illnesses including cancer, AIDS, muscular dystrophy, and other catastrophic illnesses.
The CARExpress network has a specific discount for each procedure and for each provider, so there is never any question about how much will be saved. Membership includes medical benefits for all the members of the cardholder's household at no extra cost, and there is no limit on how often the card is used.
Internet enrollment for the CARExpress medical benefits program is easy, quick, and secure, but many people prefer more personal contact in the enrollment process. This is easy; simply fill out the enrollment form and mail or fax it to the address found on the CARExpress website, http://www.carexpresshealth.com, or call toll-free at 1-866-305-SAVE to speak directly to a Customer Service Representative. The CARExpress card should be received within two weeks of submitting the online application and will be effective upon receipt. Reduced membership fees may be negotiated for large group enrollment.
CARExpress is not an insurance program. CARExpress is a health savings program that discounts most medical benefits without medical histories, physicals, underwriting, waiting periods, or usage limits. CARExpress carefully selects the health care providers within its network. Providers have been chosen for their long-standing excellence within their field. Each is prescreened and continually monitored to meet strict credentials and licensing criteria and is subject to ongoing professional review.
