MD iPass is not just about providing discounted healthcare services; it’s about providing patients instant access to quality, credentialed and flexible everyday healthcare providers with no membership fees. - John Palumbo, President and CEO
Conshohocken, PA (PRWEB) November 12, 2013
MD Aligne, a leading consumer health and telemedicine provider, announces the introduction of a new health access and savings program. The MD iPass program combines leading edge ehealth services, traditional medicine and discount card services to provide participants with an affordable and convenient way to satisfy their everyday healthcare needs. The program allows participants to have immediate access to a US licensed nurse in addition to a wide range of products and services including telephone and online doctor consultations at a reduced cost with no membership or annual fee.
“We have partnered with the largest supplemental insurance provider in the United States to launch our health access and savings program, making it easily accessible to everyone. MD iPass is truly an ideal solution for those who are uninsured, underinsured, participate in high-deductible / high co-pay insurance plans, or prefer to self-pay,” said John Palumbo, President and CEO of MD Aligne. “MD iPass is not just about providing discounted healthcare services; it’s about providing patients instant access to quality, credentialed and flexible everyday healthcare providers with no membership fees for the member or the sponsoring company.”
With the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, there is an obvious desire to make healthcare services more affordable and more accessible to everyone, regardless of their insurance coverage. And, with the increased demand for healthcare, there is expected to be a decreased supply of doctors to cover the patients’ needs. In fact, it is estimated that by 2020 there will be 70,000 less doctors available to patients (1).
MD iPass provides immediate convenient healthcare access while combining eHealth, traditional care and a no-commitment healthcare savings program to give patients the flexibility they desire. Once registered with MD iPass (at no cost), cardholders will have access at a reduced fee to the following products and services:
- Unlimited access with a Nurse- Free!
- eConsults (Online)
- Telephone Consults
- In-person doctor visits over 400,000 physicians in network
- Chiropractic Services
- Lab Services
- Imaging services (MRI, CT Scans, Ultrasound)
- Surgical Center visits
- Dental services
- Discounts on all refills from existing prescriptions
- Discounts on new prescriptions (local pick-up and mail order)
- Weight Management, Vitamins and Supplements
“MD iPass is a great option for individuals and businesses alike,” says Palumbo. “The recent changes to the nation’s healthcare system can be overwhelming and the results will affect many Americans in money and time. MD iPass offers a direct, convenient and immediate way to gain access to doctors and nurses remotely and other health services for a wide range of patients’ needs, all at no membership or registration cost to individuals or businesses.”
MD Aligne is excited to offer the MD iPass program to all Americans, providing them with a healthcare solution that fits their needs while offering savings, high quality services and safe, convenient access to everyday healthcare.
