Similar to a concierge at a 5 star hotel, medical access plans provide you with a single source of access to, and or discounts on, many of the commonly needed medical treatments, services and products such as physician consultations, prescription medications, lab tests, x-rays, MRIs and other imaging services, dental treatment, diabetes and medical supplies, hearing aids and much more.
Medical Access Plans are beneficial regardless if the individual is covered by an existing health insurance plan or not. The benefits in medical access plans can help supplement traditional health insurance plans by providing discounts on the out-of-pocket costs associated with health insurance such as co-pays, co-insurance etc. Furthermore, individuals and families without health insurance coverage can benefit from the discounts and phone access to a physician consultation.
