Press Release (ePRNews.com) - AVON, Conn. - Jul 22, 2020 - With employers across the country struggling with the expense incurred with providing healthcare to their staff, and with costs continuing to rise year after year with no end in sight, many are exploring ways that they can reduce their medical-related expenses while still providing critical, affordable services to their valuable employees.
To address this growing problem, Call A Doctor Plus, a leader in driving awareness and utilization in the virtual care industry, has launched a new health plan, VirtuMEC, that can address the needs of many today.
VirtuMEC combines the best minimum essential coverage plans available with access to powerful, effective virtual care services ranging from medical doctor consults to counselors, therapists, psychiatrists and psychologists to address both physical and mental health concerns.
Over his 40+ years in the insurance industry, Lou Daniels, the CEO of Call A Doctor Plus, has seen this play out too many times. “Year after year, EB brokers are asked to do more with less,” says Daniels. “The pandemic could make 2021 renewals the most challenging yet. Employers are getting hammered by increasing medical costs, and VirtuMEC just might be the answer to their problems.”
By launching VirtuMEC, Call A Doctor Plus hopes to help create a new alternative to expensive medical plans that harnesses the immense impact and value of virtual care to deliver quality, affordable care. MEC plans historically have been successful in delivering a low-cost alternative to traditional care. The addition of a suite of virtual care services just may have taken something that was good to great.
VirtuMEC is a high-value alternative to traditional care plans. If you find yourself struggling to keep your client’s medical expenses in line, it might just be the solution you need.
