2. Health and Lifestyle Benefits
One of the most challenging issues of our time is affordable and accessible
healthcare. More employers have been forced to restructure their benefit plans,
often reducing benefits, increasing deductibles or shifting to consumer-driven health
plan options. Many offer no insurance benefits at all. That leaves many individuals
uninsured, under insured or in the position of finding the right plan for themselves and
Individuals: HealthPerx™ addresses this challenge by providing individuals and
their families with convenient access to physicians 24/7/365 and significant savings
on prescriptions, dental and vision care as well as access to health advocates,
telephonic counselors, medical travel assistance and much more. Regardless of
existing healthcare coverage, HealthPerx can easily save individuals and their families
thousands of dollars a year in time and money.

2. Request a medical consult
• 91% were successfully treated by phone or video consult
3. A doctor calls you (average wait time: 22 minutes) or schedules a video consult
• 53% of callers would have used PCP @ $100 per visit
4. he doctor discusses symptoms, diagnoses your condition and sends
a prescription to your pharmacy, if needed.
• 25% of callers would have used urgent care or specialists @ $153 per visit
• 9% of callers would have used an emergency room @ $900 per visit
• Medical visits would have cost 4 hours of productivity @ $25 an hour
Per Call = $272.25
Actual ROI will depend on cost of benefit package selected and utilization rate.

Imagine the effect on your business if employees called
the doctor first!
“I was at work not feeling well but didn’t
want to leave work. So I decided to
call telemedicine. It was a wonderful
experience! The doctor called me back
within 30 minutes. I spoke with him
for about 15 minutes and he wrote me
a prescription that I was able to pick
up on my way home from work at my
local pharmacy! It was very convenient
Telemedicine saved me money and I
didn’t have to miss time from work.”
no medical consult fees
If a condition cannot be treated by
phone, the physician can advise what to
do and where to go—saving guesswork,
time and money.
There is already a shortage of
physicians and medical personnel.
The future demand in the number of
yearly primary care physician consults
due to population increase and
expanded coverage will drive the need
for even more physicians, creating a
greater supply-demand gap for the
next 10 years.

I’m out of town, it could result in packing it up and going home. Recently, an
allergy turned into a sinus infection and I thought I was going down for the
count, but I called telemedicine. Within 30 minutes, a doctor called, knew
exactly what was going on, and sent in a prescription that I picked up an
hour later. I couldn’t believe how well it worked. It’s the best value for the
dollar I have ever seen.”

“This is a fabulous benefit. I have had
two issues this year. One was related
to an issue with my dad’s Medicaid and
Veteran’s Benefits. I was connected
with an elder care attorney who was
so helpful. I would have had to pay
at least $500 for that much legal
advice on my own. The other issue
had to do with a contract I was asked
to sign for my business. The attorney
I got this time reviewed the contract
and got back to me in a day with his
recommendations, which were very
helpful. I was very impressed with
the service and professionalism from
Legal Club of America.”
