Unlike health insurance, there are no co-payments, no deductibles and no exclusions for pre-existing conditions. With Medical Membership Plans everyone over the age of six months is eligible and coverage is practically guaranteed to issue.
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) November 29, 2011
For one astonishingly low fee, Individuals and families can now directly join Medical Membership Plans to have affordable health care at any of 1,100 conveniently located private health care centers that are accessible alternatives to the high cost of primary, urgent and preventative care doctor visits.
Previously this type of care, with one monthly fixed fee and no deductibles, no co-pays, and no exclusion for pre-existing conditions, was almost exclusively available through company-sponsored plans.
“By joining a medical membership plan,” says Robert Schumacher, the organization’s executive director,” one monthly fee provides an individual or a family with primary, urgent and preventative direct medical care through a national network of about 1,100 private health care centers.”
“Medical membership plans are not insurance, nor a substitute for Insurance,” Mr. Schumacher points out. “It does not cover catastrophic illness or severe accidents that require hospitalization or specialists, although it does offer significant discounts for these services.”
“What medical membership plans provides,” continues Mr. Schumacher, is the diagnosis and treatment for illnesses and injuries that people typically go to family doctors, general practitioners, clinics or emergency rooms (for non-emergency care). “
This includes diagnosis and treatment of illnesses and injuries such as: work related injuries; annual, school and DOT physical exams; vaccinations and flu shots; cold and flu; strep throat; allergies; sprains and strains; back pain; urinary tract infections; minor burns; sinus, ear and eye infections; bronchitis; travel health planning and wellness programs.
Depending on the local health care centers onsite facilities, laboratory and imaging services may be included at no additional cost.
NO CO-PAYMENTS, NO DEDUCTIBLES, AND NO EXCLUSIONS FOR PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS
“Unlike health insurance, there are no co-payments, no deductibles and no exclusions for pre-existing conditions” says Mr. Schumacher. “With Medical Membership Plans everyone over the age of six months is eligible and coverage is practically guaranteed to issue."
The monthly fee is $84 for an individual and $99 for a family. This includes the member, spouse and their children up to the age of 26.
The monthly fee is less than the average cost for just one visit to a family practice physician according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Yet it covers an unrestricted number of monthly visits for illnesses and injuries for all members of a covered family.
1,100 PRIVATE HEALTH CARE CENTERS TREAT MEMBERS ON A “WALK-IN” BASIS
“As important as affordability, so too is simply having access to primary, urgent and preventative care,” says Mr. Schumacher.
To deliver quality care on a national basis, Medical Membership Plans is an affiliate of My Community Care that partners with about 1,100 convenient and urgent care private health care centers throughout the country.
“For plan members, no appointment is necessary. They are treated for injuries or illnesses on a walk-in basis,” says Mr. Schumacher. “Non-urgent injuries and illness are treated within the normal flow of patients to help reduce wait times. Members who need exams that require additional paperwork and tests are encouraged to schedule an appointment.”
ALSO INCLUDED: DISCOUNTS FOR HOSPITALIZATION, SPECIALISTS AND MAJOR MEDICAL CARE
For major medical conditions and specialists, members receive substantial cost savings by being part of the nationwide Galaxy Healthcare Network of over 400,000 physicians, 2,700 hospitals and 47,000 ancillary providers.
Significant discounts are given for treatment and procedures beyond primary, urgent and preventative care. This includes medical specialists; hospitalization; diagnostic imaging and advanced radiologic procedures; physical therapy and chiropractic care.
