Telemedicine­– The Next Healthcare Solution
healthPERX Offers
Convenience & Savings

W

ith only a few months remaining in 2013,
the U.S. is anticipating one of the biggest
changes in the New Year – the Affordable
Care Act. As individuals begin making their own
health insurance decisions and employers restructure
benefits to offset higher medical costs, many have
discovered an innovative service that can complement their healthcare plan or provide an alternative
solution.
Telemedicine, the fastest growing segment of the
healthcare industry, is making medical care easily
accessible, more efficient and more affordable
to both businesses and individuals. According to
the American Medical Association, as many as 70
percent of all doctor visits are for information only
or for matters that could easily be handled over the
phone. More than eight million consumers are
currently participating and seeing the benefits of
telemedicine….and it’s only expected to increase.
healthPERX is a health and lifestyle benefits
program that features telemedicine as its core
benefit and offers 24/7 access to board certified
doctors in all 50 states who can diagnose and treat
patients over the phone or online, and even write
prescriptions. The convenient program is designed
to lower healthcare and prescription costs by
providing services to employers or individuals with
a low monthly fee and no medical consult fee, a
feature that sets healthPERX apart from other
telemedicine companies. In addition, this service not
only covers the employee but their immediate family.

“Twenty to 30 million people will soon have
health insurance options who did not have them
before,” said healthPERX CEO Jeff Marks. “Due to
a shortage of physicians and pediatricians, people
can expect increasingly longer wait times to see
doctors resulting in more time out of the office.
Thus, treating minor conditions quickly and
efficiently is one of the strongest reasons for
using healthPERX in every health benefit package.”
Employers can reduce absenteeism, increase
productivity, decrease overall healthcare costs
significantly and show substantial ROI quickly
by using healthPERX. In 2012, the company’s
telemedicine program successfully treated 91
percent of all patients via phone or video consultation,
reduced office visits by 53 percent, urgent care
by 23 percent and emergency room visits by nine
percent, resulting in a 100 percent ROI with the
majority of companies their first year.
“Telemedicine, also called telehealth, should be
part of every company’s cost containment strategy,”
said Marks. “Companies have saved tens of thousands
of dollars using the service with reduced time out,
more productive employees and a healthier workplace overall. Furthermore, employees have saved
thousands of dollars from their own out-of-pocket
expenses.”

this benefit and how easy it is to use, leading to
increased utilization. This is the key to success
with telemedicine and another feature that sets
healthPERX apart from other telemedicine providers.
With the pricing of this benefit, companies
can expect a 100 percent ROI with as little as
15 – 20 percent employee utilization, making this
a compelling value.

Upon participating with the program, employers
receive awareness building tools used to educate
employees year round so they don’t forget they have

“With millions of new people entering the system and
a shortage of physicians, something has to change,”
said Marks. “healthPERX is a game-changer.”
