How to Simplify Employee Health Care Coverage

Business owners face a challenge today in attracting, hiring, training as well as retaining employees. Besides providing a fair salary, benefits must also be considered as an important part of an employee’s compensation package and employers are looking for unique benefits solutions, particularly relative to their healthcare benefits offering.

For years, having a job meant inclusion in the company-sponsored health plan. Today, that is no guarantee. Many Americans are without health care coverage, due to either their employers' inability to absorb higher costs, or their own inability to pay the rising cost of premiums.

In addition, lack of access to high quality care prevents many from seeking the help they need. Research has found that 23% of patients wait six days or more before seeking care. In addition, many live in rural areas that would require extensive travel just to reach care facilities. According to government estimates, more than 35 million Americans live in areas underserved by physicians and only 30% of patients have same day access to care when needed.

For those able to access care, the waits are often long and the costs can be prohibitive. 24% of patients wait 30 minutes or longer in a doctor’s waiting room. Many Americans are resorting to high cost emergency rooms for routine medical issues. The estimated cost of an average emergency room visit is $2,028. Over 66% of emergency room visits are for non-emergencies. In our new web-connected reality, employees should no longer have outrageous hospital bills, nor should business owners be faced with ever increasing premiums.

This points to the need for easily accessible, more cost-effective health care. Amidst all of this, an innovative company has emerged with the mission of tackling pressing health care issues by doing away with the costly and inefficient framework, and simplifying access to high quality health care.

Stat Doctors, an Arizona company founded by Dr. Alan Roga MD, aims to change the way health care for routine medical issues is delivered. Stat Doctors uses advanced, secure technologies to provide anytime/anywhere access to board-certified emergency room physicians.

"We offer personalized care from our ER physicians, who are on-call 24/7, for common, medical ailments that until now, usually necessitated a visit to a hospital emergency room or an urgent care center," says Dr. Alan Roga, CEO of Stat Doctors. "We simply think that there's got to be easier answers for employees' healthcare.”

Stat Doctors also lessens health care costs for business owners over time. Employers provide Stat Doctors as a supplemental health care offering for employees as part of their overall benefits package.

STAT DOCTORS' new business model is the kind of smart thinking that makes one still have a bit of faith in health care coverage and healthcare reform.
