WINTER PARK, Fla., June 15, 2020—Responding to new healthcare challenges faced during the coronavirus pandemic, Anthros announced a new comprehensive telemedicine program for clients and their employees, allowing employees and their families to get the medical care they need without leaving their home.
The new e-healthcare service, operated by Doctegrity, gives employees unlimited access to virtual visits with board certified physicians for primary care and licensed counselors and therapists for mental and behavioral health needs.
“With the need to observe social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, employees can take advantage of Doctegrity’s telemedicine benefits to see doctors 24/7 from the safety and comfort of their own home,” said Anthros Director of Benefits, Helen Usher.
For one low monthly fee, Doctegrity members can schedule unlimited appointments with no additional copays or appointment fees. Primary care and behavioral health services are available in both English and Spanish through secured phone or video chat. Employees can also choose a plan that provides telemedicine benefits for family members.
“As the cost of traditional health insurance continues to rise, we must ensure our clients’ employees are getting access to the health care they need,” said Usher. “With its innovative pricing model, Doctegrity makes primary care and mental health services affordable to all.”
Doctegrity’s board-certified physicians are able to treat 75 percent of common conditions, such as cold, flu, and allergies, saving employees the time and high costs incurred through in-person doctor visits, urgent care or emergency room visits.
Other features of Doctegrity telemedicine benefits include:
- No open enrollment period. Employees can enroll, cancel or change their benefits at any time.
- Enrollment is integrated into Anthros’ secure, online Employee Portal.
- Employees can schedule primary care and mental and behavioral health appointments 24/7 through the user-friendly Doctegrity app.
- Fully bilingual service is available with a complete English or Spanish experience from app to physician.
- A prescription discount card gives members discounts of up to 80% on prescriptions.
“At Anthros we pride ourselves on our ability to constantly evolve our services to better serve our clients and their employees,” said Anthros Founder and CEO, Anurag Dandiya. “We must take every measure we can to promote the health and wellbeing of clients’ team members and their families, especially right now as we face new risks and uncertainties during the coronavirus pandemic.”
