ROCHESTER, N.Y., Aug. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — 5LINX enhancedcareMD offers easy access to affordable healthcare from anywhere, all day, every day for everyone in your household. This comprehensive, supplemental health care solution provides members with prompt access to registered nurses and medical doctors over the phone.
A recent American Medical Association (AMA) study says 80% of visits to a doctor or urgent care clinic could have been effectively handled by telemedicine. Users save around $200 for an urgent care visit and around $75 for a doctor visit. For one low fee, 5LINX enhancedcareMD connects members with registered nurses within 30 seconds. 5LINX enhancedcareMD nurses average 15 years of clinical experience and offer telephone triage in 150 different languages. Registered nurses from 5LINX enhancedcareMD focus their wealth of experience to offer a real-time diagnosis, guidance or self-care options for each member's health concerns.
When patients need more assistance than what 5LINX enhancedcareMD RNs can offer, members can access a licensed board certified physician for just $5 more. These physicians write and forward prescriptions to the member's pharmacy. 5LINX enhancedcareMD has partnered with Wal-Mart, Sam's Clubs and other pharmacies to create an exclusive prescription drug savings plan. On average, this savings plan offers 23% off on prescriptions.
5LINX enhancedcareMD includes ecPathways, a private alternative health portal. ecPathways offers members comprehensive information and resources to stay healthier in mind, body and spirit. A network of more than 8,000 practitioners in massage therapy, acupuncture, and naturopathy provide 5LINX enhancedcareMD members convenient access to affordable alternative care. Members also have unlimited use of an audio library of more than 1,100 risks and conditions to promote a greater understanding of any disease or condition.
5LINX enhancedcareMD is not a health insurance policy, but offers a convenient way to quickly resolve routine health care concerns. After each consultation, members receive a clinical report in their personal health portal for future reference. In compliance with HIPAA regulations, members may securely access and email the report to a primary care physician if they choose.
