Gift Rep Sandy here, with a CRITICAL way for you to improve your life… by cutting your most common (non-emergency) medical bills to a tiny fraction! All while getting more personal health care attention than you ever thought you could afford.
(PS My apologies, but you may only take advantage of this, if you live in the United States.)
After all, what is the point of a fun, successful business, if you can’t keep on top of your health?
Ever heard of “tele-medicine”?… A way to conveniently enjoy your most common doctor visits through a “Virtual Medical Office”?
Even if you currently enjoy great health insurance, there are co-pays and deductibles you are subject to, for even very minor office visits.
Not to mention potential savings on the travel and the wait.
And while waiting – and meeting in-person with your doctor – you are spending time where mostly sick people hang out, exposing you to a host of additional bugs, while your immune system is already overworked.
Not an issue with tele-medicine.
What if you could SEE (or at least talk to) a board-certified doctor every time you – or a family member – had a sniffle, a funny or scary symptom, or just needed a prescription refill?
For less than the cost of one nominal co-pay – you could get 1, 3, 5, 10, even 30 personal sessions with an MD, or a Pediatrician for your dependent child. Oh, and licensed therapists on staff too, for those down times by family members! (I could have used that during my first marriage, sigh.)
And YOU choose the specialist you need for your specific health needs, right online.
The deductible on ONE AFTER HOURS EMERGENCY VISIT a year, that you don’t have to make, should pay for an entire year of this service.
In the scenario I am proposing, this contact with your own physician or mental health professional is by phone, or via secure online video (internet webcam or video smartphone), using HIPAA-compliant security technology.
Best of all, open 24/7…you may use this service any time of day or night, from the comfort of your own home. While sitting in your PJs, right?
Or while traveling! Have you, a spouse, your child, or other traveling companion, ever gotten sick while on the road? And no meds. Nightmare, anyone?
And even more scary because it seems to always happen late on a Friday, when it’s very hard to get a hold of your regular doc, until Monday. So your two options are to hit the expensive emergency room of an unknown hospital or urgent care center, or a 2- or 3-day anxious wait (until your family physician returns to the office!).
Now, with just a quick phone call, you could get answers – and access to prescriptions if necessary – at your fingertips, from anywhere in the US.
How much is that peace of mind worth to you?
I tried for years to find a QUALITY, REASONABLE group health plan for business owners in our niche. I even considered starting an association (e.g. Gift & Gourmet Marketing Association) for product makers and marketers — just so we could get a good group policy going. (But… that is a story for another day.)
Fortunately, serendipity eventually comes into play – when you wish for something hard enough.
Just this past month – April 2016 – a brand new tele-medicine service (with an existing company) launched, and it seems too good to be true.
UNLIMITED CALLS TO YOUR CHOICE OF MD, PEDIATRICIAN, or THERAPIST for just $29 a month. (You read that correctly!)
(PS – Single account good for up to five members of your household… for over five, you would need a 2nd account.)
While this does not solve every health care issue (and is not a substitute for insurance to cover serious medical emergencies), it will – for most households – reduce total out-of-pocket medical bills.
For me and Malcolm, it’s worth 10 times the nominal cost.
No more driving 30 minutes for mediocre health care (or an hour-plus for slightly better health care), just to get an antibiotic prescription for a flu bug.
I remember when my kids were little, every time there was an earache, it was a 45-minute trip to see the doctor, an hour or more in the waiting room, and we left $45 lighter in the pocketbook. Just to get the prescription written – even when we already knew what kind of medicine we needed.
Here is another personal example of how valuable this opportunity can be… last September, my husband’s MD of 34 years retired. Malcolm’s one-year prescription of allopurinol for his gout came due in January. The pharmacy, of course, would not fill his prescription without a doctor OK. So even though Malcolm did not need to see a doctor, the closest clinic charged us over $200 for the new patient intake… just to get an $11 three-month prescription at Walmart, for a relatively benign drug he’s been on for 40 years.
If this new service had launched a couple months earlier, we could have gotten the refill by computer visit, and with the savings, paid for seven months (over half a year) of service. And had unlimited doctor (and therapist, hah!) virtual visits in the meantime, for no additional cost.
Every time you move to a new town, you are subject to this same inconvenience.
This month, I am just about to “enjoy” a similar situation with my expiring thyroid prescription, since I was using the same recently retired MD. First seven months on this service are essentially free for me, since I gpt the prescription by phone, they sent it directly to my pharmacy (with the click of an online button), and no suffering the $200+ “first visit” charges.
Finally, Youngevity TeleCare is here!
NOTE: when you open the website and click on ORDER NOW, the first input field in the lower left column asks for “ID# of who referred you*” – that person would be me, and the ID# to copy and paste – or type – into that spot is:
Sweet savings found at: https://telecare.youngevity.com/
The average doctor at TeleCare enjoys at least 15 years of post-graduate experience – no getting pawned off on the newbie doctor fresh out of med school to use you or your family as guinea pigs, for his or her medical education.
Note that while this is a new tele-medicine service (offered by Youngevity, a 20-year-old, $200 million publicly-traded company), the underlying service is much more impressive.
The phones actually ring in to MDLive, a billion dollar company, offering virtual health care since 2009. However, MDLive charges $49 PER CALL! (Check it out if you don’t believe me: https://welcome.mdlive.com/)
This new service with MDLive, contracted by Youngevity, is just $29 per month for a limited time…but with unlimited virtual visits for up to five members of your household.
But if telemedicine for $49 a visit is a better deal for your situation (average only one non-emergency doctor session every two months), go for it. (https://welcome.mdlive.com/)
But I urge you to check out TELECARE – worth a trial, at the very least. And the more people you have in your home, the further your drive is from GOOD health care, the more you travel, the more prescriptions you take, the younger or older that people are in your household, the more household members, the more you enjoy peace of mind, or the higher your co-pays… the greater your benefit from this program.
Removing just ONE visit to the doctor, covers one to six months of these Telecare services, depending on your personal insurance situation. And TELECARE is never more than a phone call away. Day or night.

Again, please use — ID# 101433545 – where indicated, on the short online application.
I hope you appreciate this service as much as I do.
And if this sounds good, but not a good fit for you, please share or forward this critical health opportunity to appropriate friends, family, employees, or affinity group members you care about. Anyone who might benefit from both the increased access to quality non-emergency health care, and the related savings.
PS This is a great small (or large) company medical perk, for one or 100 employees. Employee retention anyone?
TELECARE might be especially beneficial as a gift or referral for elderly parents or others who can’t or won’t go to the trouble of a doctor visit, but might pick up the phone to dialog with a friendly, supportive doctor.
