New telemedicine plan for underinsured, uninsured individuals

The Affordable Care Act helped many become insured, yet 31 million people are "underinsured" with high deductible plans and face out-of-pocket medical costs that can cause serious financial stress. NutreaLife, a new telemedicine and wellness company, offers a cost-effective supplemental benefit plan powered by Healthiest You, with unlimited phone, online and email to a network of 2300 U.S. board certified doctors 24/7/365. With no underwriters, deductibles or approval processes, NutreaLife's telemedicine plan saves money for those who are underinsured, uninsured, families or seniors on a fixed income. It is also convenient for people who travel or live in remote areas.

Unlike most telemedicine providers that charge $40 to $60 for a limited consultation with a doctor, NutreaLife offers its telemedicine plan to individuals for $15 per month, and for families, including up to nine dependents and spouse, for only $18 per month. The low monthly fee includes unlimited doctor consultations at no additional charge. Doctors can prescribe non-controlled medication for a savings of up to 85 percent on prescriptions.

"Our goal is to streamline the way patients receive and manage their healthcare and, at the same time, make high-quality care affordable," said NutreaLife CEO and co-founder, Edward Joseph Eyring II, M.D., a surgeon who spent many years serving at a nonprofit providing free medical care to low-income families in the U.S.

Members can search for, review credentials of and select, a local doctor or specialist throughout the U.S. (except Arkansas) and save up to 85 percent on prescriptions at local major pharmacies.

The Wellness Council of America states that more than 70 percent of emergency room, urgent care and doctor's visits can be safely handled over the phone. The top reasons people visit the doctor include allergies, bronchitis, earache, sore throat, sinusitis, pink eye, strep throat, upper respiratory infections and urinary tract infections.

How it works:

  • Call to schedule appointment by phone or online.
  • Provide medical history which is loaded up in a secured HIPAA-compliant member portal.
  • A call is scheduled with the doctor or specialist.
  • A doctor reviews the online patient history and calls, usually in less than 10 minutes.
  • If a prescription is required, the doctor writes an e-script and sends it to the member's pharmacy of choice.
  • The doctor updates the member's electronic medical records.

NutreaLife members have free access to Healthiest You's mobile app, which includes "Connect Now" one-touch access for scheduling appointments, pharmacy locator, cost comparisons on procedures and prescriptions, and tools that help insured members manage claims and find in-network providers.

For small business owners and corporations, customized pricing on telemedicine benefit plans are available to save on healthcare benefits and save employees on out-of-pocket expenses.
