CADR+ gives employers a smart benefit option, helps decrease healthcare costs

Employers have consistently seen their healthcare premiums go up while increasingly sharing a bigger slice of their costs with employees. They’re looking to take some of the bite out and asking for new alternatives when it comes to the high cost of healthcare.

With Consult A Doctor Plus (CADR+), the premier telemedicine service, you can change the conversation from “what can you do for me” to “here’s what I can do for you” – even more critical now with the Affordable Care Act.

The Consult A Doctor Plus telemedicine program, distributed by leading insurance marketing firm, Neilson Marketing Services, is a creative solution you can bring to the table to help both employers and employees in managing healthcare expenses. CADR+ provides on-demand, 24/7 phone, video and online physician access to individual employees and their families for non-emergent medical issues.

Businesses that incorporate telehealth services as an employer-sponsored value-added benefit will:

  • Reduce healthcare costs by up to 25% or greater as employees turn less to traditional insurance for medical advice and prescriptions for common ailments – resulting in fewer claims, lower administration costs and lower premiums
  • Address the concerns around rising co-insurance and deductibles by helping to eliminate many out-of-pocket employee expenses related to costly doctor, urgent care and ER visits for non-emergent medical conditions
  • Improve overall group wellness, bolster employee productivity with easier and faster access to quality care
  • Reduce workplace absenteeism due to early intervention and employees taking less time off for doctor visits and recovery time
  • Provide the program to each employee and up to five of their family members

What’s more, with Consult A Doctor Plus, you’re not replacing an employer’s health insurance plan – you’re adding to it. Think of CADR+ as a wellness program that brings the best in physician care to members anytime and anywhere while driving down healthcare costs.

Telemedicine delivers a broader reach to quality medical services and helps lower the cost of healthcare for employers and employees.

The ins & outs of telemedicine 101

Telemedicine or telehealth was borne out of the need to provide greater access to medical services to individuals. Every day, thousands of patients wait to get the treatment they need because they don’t have convenient access to care – whether it’s working moms, business travelers, the elderly, on-the-go students, or individuals living in rural and remote areas. What’s more, thousands more go to the ER, a doctor’s office or an urgent care clinic for non-emergent issues or common conditions that could have been provided much more quickly, conveniently, safely and cost-effectively over the phone or online. In fact, the American Medical Association reports that as many as 70% of all doctor visits are for information only or for matters that can be handled over the phone.

It’s simply the ability to use telecommunication and technology as a way to provide clinical healthcare – from video consultation to the Internet and mobile monitoring devices. Individuals who are members of a telemedicine program have access to a network of physicians. They can choose to phone in, email or schedule a videoconference – no matter what time of day or night and no matter where they are. The physician has access to the patient’s electronic records and history of prior treatments and prescription fills. A telemedicine doctor can provide online medical advice, doctor consultation, medical diagnosis and fill or refill prescriptions for non-emergent and common conditions.

Telemedicine is used for non-emergent issues and common conditions. The top ten diagnoses are for: sinus problem, urinary track infection, pink eye, bronchitis, upper respiratory infection, nasal congestion, allergies, flu, cough and ear infection.

Telemedicine provides many benefits to both employees (patients) and employers. Patients get unlimited access to physicians whenever and wherever they are – they have their very own virtual doctor. They get faster treatment so they feel better, which means they can get back to what they need to do, whether it’s a mom or dad who needs to care for the kids, an employee who needs to get to work, or an individual looking forward to that vacation or weekend getaway. It also eliminates the need to go to a doctor’s office, ER or urgent care for issues that can be treated faster and without the cost of these expensive visits. Individuals also save out-of-pocket costs that come from their deductibles and coinsurance. And they take an active role in their healthcare and wellness.

Employers get to lower their claims costs, admin expenses and premiums when employees increasingly turn to telemedicine in lieu of traditional insurance. Employers can realize a savings of up to 25% with telemedicine. They also provide a value-added benefit to their healthcare plan, which helps to address the ongoing concern over the shift of healthcare expenses to employees. It helps to fill the gap in high-deductible plans employees are purchasing through the Affordable Care Act on healthcare exchanges.

Data shows that over 36 million Americans have been treated through telemedicine tele-consultations. Moreover, an article in Forbes Magazine on healthcare trends sees telehealth in the U.S. dramatically increasing to nearly $2 billion in revenue by 2018. This is as a result of doctor shortages, provider payment changes under the Affordable Care Act and individuals and employees wanting greater control over medical expenses.
