  • Hello,

    My name is Rahul and I am from the Free Discount Plan for health care called Healthsouk.com.
    I am a health care enthusiast and work in P.R. for HealthSouk. I was wondering if you would be interested in interviewing our CEO - Dr. Neilesh Patel DDS regarding this innovative dental discount plan for a possible story or blog story. Our insurance plan with no monthly fees also is getting ready for launch in a just a couple months! It is a large wave in what is being called Consumer directed insurance plans. This is the wave of American health insurance for the next 10 years.

    Dr. Patel has started 3 previous startups that have brought access to health care to millions of people worldwide including HealthCare Volunteer (www.healthcarevolunteer.org) which he started as a dental student with $250 of his school loan money. Since then millions have received free health care around the world. HealthSouk is a new venture and this is the first of its kind and it has no monthly fees for patients. You can read more about him at www.drneileshpatel.com

    For patients HealthSouk has reinvented the wheel. . . No monthly fees. It puts the patient’s back in charge of their health care decisions and financing in an expedia or travelocity like manner.

    Marv Migdol who is the CEO of Consumer Health Alliance recently made a quote about HealthSouk saying he was “impressed with our background and achievements”. Marv is one of the fathers of the discount plan industry and got involved with decades ago.

    This is a difficult time for patients to get access to discount dental services and our service grew from 1000 members last month to almost 10,000 in a just couple weeks. I look forward to hearing from you soon and working with you to setup an interview with Dr. Patel

    Sincerely,
    Rahul
