SelectAccount has taken an industry-leading step in supporting account holders at a key consumer decision moment in health care.
Eagan, MN (PRWEB) April 29, 2015
SelectAccount takes a huge leap forward beyond helping people save money to pay for health care expenses with their new WalletDoc suite of consumer tools designed to stretch dollars further. Not only can people compare costs and find discounts, they can now evaluate treatment options through a strategic relationship with WiserTogether, Inc., a treatment transparency company offering Wiser Health. The seamless user experience gives people access to a market-leading health solutions platform that provides users with comprehensive treatment information, allowing them to assess treatment options based on clinical outcome data, personal and popular preference, cost and coverage. Motivated health consumers receive higher quality of care and adhere better to treatments while enjoying lower costs, better health outcomes and higher satisfaction.
“Employers are moving towards Consumer-Directed Health Plans (CDHPs) for their employee populations with little or no access to cost-effective consumerism tools to complement the CDHP health benefit,” said David Cantu, SelectAccount Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Public Relations. “With this shift to CDHPs, people are looking to shop for health care like they do for other purchases by making decisions based on the cost of care, best treatment options and peer support. To address the need for comprehensive information in a convenient location, WalletDoc has incorporated a robust platform of consumerism tools into our Online Member Service Center where people are already checking their balances and paying claims when faced with health care expenses.”
“By offering Wiser Health, SelectAccount has taken an industry-leading step in supporting account holders at a key consumer decision moment in health care,” said Dr. Shub Debgupta, CEO of WiserTogether. “Wiser Health helps people in high deductible health plans to better understand their treatment options and their associated costs. This is the first and crucial step in the journey towards consumerism and will help SelectAccount’s account holders better manage their health while maximizing their savings and account holdings.”
WalletDoc is a one-of-a-kind resource for treatment decision support, cost comparisons, savings opportunities through online care, medical discounts and medical bill negotiation, financial and peer support, and health management tools. These valuable benefits empower individuals to take control regardless of where they are along the continuum of care – considering treatment options, selecting a care facility, seeking savings or needing financial help for an expense already incurred. SelectAccount and Wiser Health are innovators in how to support and guide sound decision making in this era of high deductible health plans.
WalletDoc is now available to individuals and employer groups directly from their account portals. To find out how to increase yours or your employee’s health care buying power, contact us at 1-855-363-2583.
