Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) August 16, 2012
DealWell, a local Internet start-up, announced today that it has officially launched its website, http://www.dealwell.com. DealWell intends to revolutionize the way consumers shop for and buy cash-pay health care and wellness services. It provides a quick and easy way to compare area providers, see prices, read customer reviews, and bid on their services. Every offer on the site guarantees savings of at least 20%, with some as much as 80% - 90% off the retail price.
“The Internet has changed how we buy virtually everything from music and books to insurance and cars,” said Geoffrey Fischer, the 34 year-old President and Co-Founder of DealWell. “But we still buy medical and wellness services the way our parents did decades ago, often without even knowing the price before the service begins. We couldn’t believe that in 2012 there wasn’t a go-to website to shop for health care – so we built DealWell to change that. We’re excited to see our concept live and open for business in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Now, when smart shoppers want to save on health and wellness services, we’re here for them at http://www.dealwell.com.”
At today’s launch, DealWell has more than 150 offers from 40 top-rated North Texas providers of dental, orthodontic, chiropractic and medical imaging services. Whether it’s an offer for teeth cleaning or whitening, chiropractic adjustment, or even an MRI, the savings are substantial. In the coming weeks, DealWell will be adding offers for med spa services, massage and more.
Thanks to DealWell, consumers no longer have to spend time on the phone during business hours inquiring about prices and bargaining with providers to get a good deal. DealWell gives users all the information they need to comparison shop any time of the day or night. Whether on a PC, Mac, tablet or mobile device, http://www.dealwell.com users can find the provider and the location that is right for them and bid the amount they are willing to pay for the desired service. In a matter of seconds they are informed if their bid has been accepted and, if so, the consumer’s credit or debit card is charged and DealWell issues a certificate good for the service.
In addition to the savings built into all DealWell offers, purchases made on http://www.dealwell.com may be applicable toward insurance deductibles or eligible for reimbursement from F.S.A./H.S.A. plans. Users are encouraged to check with their plan administrator for details.
DealWell focuses on the world of cash-pay health care, which includes elective procedures as well as non-elective services for the growing population of Americans with no insurance or high deductibles.
“Politicians and pundits do a lot of talking about ‘health care reform’, but they’ve been short on results,” said Fischer. “We’re empowering consumers with information and helping them rein in the spiraling costs of health care, one household at a time. We’ve seen the Internet make virtually every other industry more consumer-friendly and efficient, and we’re eager to replicate that success with health care.”
DealWell is a division of Plano-based Preferred Medical Holdings, LLC, which was named the #34 fastest-growing privately-held company in Dallas in the 2011 “Dallas 100” published by the SMU Cox School of Business. PMH’s President, James H. Webb, sees national potential in the innovative model.
“We think consumers will catch on quickly to DealWell, not just here in Dallas but eventually across the entire United States,” said Webb. “We see this launch as the beginning of the next big thing.”
