The telemedicine leader is offering membership plans for employers at the most competitive rates in the industry. SecondOpinions.com Membership Program delivers employer plans for as low as $6.99 per month per employee. There are many exciting benefits which are not currently available elsewhere. For example, members can upload an unlimited number of radiologic scans and receive prompt second opinion reports. Patients have 24/7 access to a medical library, storage of medical records and radiology images and reports, as well as access to some of the top physicians in virtually any medical specialty.
Second opinion membership programs are becoming popular among employers of all sizes due to escalating health insurance premiums. In fact, employee wellness programs that promote and reward healthy behaviors have become the most popular cost-containment strategy for employers. Recent surveys have found that more than three quarters of all firms offer at least one wellness program. It has been proven that such programs significantly lower premiums.
New membership programs are especially beneficial for employers who have employees that frequently utilize healthcare services. Jack Cooksey of Fort Collins, Colorado commented. "Unfortunately, my wife and I have significant health issues that require ongoing imaging. I can’t even express in a few words how incredibly important this service has been to us." Cooksey has used SecondOpinions.com six times. "They’ve provided superior, detailed readings comparing images of different types (MRI, X-ray, CT scans) and from different hospitals for a fraction of the cost of the initial single readings by the imaging centers." Cooksey has recommended SecondOpinions.com to doctors and friends. "We were very pleased to learn SecondOpinions.com is now offering membership plans. For anyone expecting a series of images related to surgery or other health issues, the membership plan is a great way to save on services that are already surprisingly inexpensive."
SecondOpinions.com allows patients to simply upload their radiology images (MRI, CT etc.) to a HIPAA regulated, secure, confidential platform and receive a report in the privacy of their own home or office. In addition, doctors in virtually every medical specialty are on standby to provide consultations via phone or video chat. Obtaining a second opinion decreases medical errors, saves lives, and keeps healthcare costs down by preventing unnecessary surgeries and procedures. It also gives patients the peace of mind they need and deserve. Quality assurance techniques such as second opinions are also encouraged under The Patient Protection and the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
