Wellness Advantage Lessens Financial Burden of High Insurance Deductibles

Share Article

Wellness Advantage provides more discounts and access to medical, dental, vision providers, and prescription drugs than any other healthcare discount card. The card provides discounts of up to 50% for doctor visits, dental, vision and hearing care, prescription drugs, laboratory tests, MRI and imaging, and surgical centers.

WellCard Health is a leading provider of empowering health and wellness solutions, giving members access to pre-negotiated discounts on prescription drugs and a wide range of health care services.

The Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) provides health insurance for all, regardless of income and preexisting conditions. However, the negatives may outweigh the positives for many.

Premiums range $200 to more than $1,000 per month, with deductibles from $2,000 to $6,000 or higher. Many life saving prescriptions are not covered. Many plans only provide dental and vision coverage for dependents younger than 20 years old.

A healthy millennial may find health insurance premiums at $70 to $100, with a deductible of $5,000 or more. For a healthy 20-something, paying the penalty for not enrolling in health insurance and for health services may make economic sense.

The solution is the Wellness Advantage, powered by WellCard Health.
