CHANDLER AND PRESCOTT, AZ (PRWEB) July 02, 2012
The Supreme Court mandate will stretch Americans thin in terms of their healthcare dollar and will redirect America’s healthcare delivery system to focus on prevention and health (Read More at http://www.7poh.com/with-healthcare-reform-what-happens-if-americas-health-system-collapses/). UCR Health Centers, an integrated urgent care which cares for disease on an immediate care bases but also offers chiropractic, massage and alternative therapies, is poised to respond quickly. Announcing the launch of its new loyalty card program, Passport to Health, UCR Health Centers offers patients discounted fees on urgent care doctor’s visits.
The program is designed for Americans without health insurance and those with high deductibles. It will give patients immediate access to urgent care medical services without the cost and waiting time of hospital emergency rooms.
“Patients are coming in to urgent care with $3,000 to $10,000 dollar deductibles or more these days,” states Dr. Natasha Deonarain, founder of UCR Health Centers. “Our loyalty program is now cheaper than most health insurance co-pays for urgent care services.”
Deonarain feels programs like UCR Health Centers’ Passport to Health are going to become the norm in most doctor’s and urgent care offices. Many health insurance companies are now shifting costs for emergency rooms onto patients. They are also adding co-pays and co-insurance for many services which were previously covered, such as MRI, CT scans or lab testing, making it increasingly difficult for people to afford health care.
“We are quickly becoming a cash-paying market,” states Dr. Deonarain. “As soon as Americans realize that it’s cheaper to pay directly for health and medical services than it is to have health insurance, they’re going to start demanding payment options like this from all their health providers.”
