Alegeus Announces Partnership with Telehealth Provider HealthPoint Plus
Published on June 2nd, 2020
Waltham, MA — June 2, 2020 — Alegeus, the market leader in consumer-directed healthcare (CDH) solutions, today announced a partnership with HealthPoint Plus, a subscription-based telehealth provider that connects patients to state-licensed, board-certified doctors anytime, anywhere. Clients will have access to this robust telehealth offering through the Alegeus platform’s marketplace page.
HealthPoint Plus provides access to virtual urgent care and mental health appointments, coordinates prescriptions for local pickup, and shares visit information with a patient’s primary care physician for care continuity – all through an easy-to-use mobile app. HealthPoint Plus doctors can treat a wide range of illnesses and injuries, including sore throat, cold, flu, skin infections, gastrointestinal issues, cuts, abrasions, bug bites and more. According to a new study from the Annals of Internal Medicine, the majority of doctor visits conducted via telemedicine are an appropriate replacement for in-person care.
The expansion of our service through the Alegeus marketplace will not only provide a high-caliber patient experience, but also ensure healthcare cost savings for employers and consumers.
For both businesses and consumers, the HealthPoint Plus subscription provides drastic cost-savings. An annual subscription costs less than a single traditional office visit, and there are no add-on costs of any kind, including co-pays. In addition, consumers benefit from time savings and convenience, as appointments can take place anywhere – at home, at the office or while on vacation.
“We as a society had already begun embracing the many advantages of telehealth, but the COVID-19 pandemic has made these advantages even more apparent,” said Steven Auerbach, CEO of Alegeus. “People need a way to receive care without putting their safety at risk, and telehealth allows them to avoid the doctor’s office or the urgent care waiting room. When you add in the savings in both time and money, it’s clear that providers like HealthPoint Plus will become an increasingly large part of care delivery. Many of our clients have already integrated HealthPoint Plus into their consumer funding platforms, and we are pleased to be able to offer broader access via our marketplace.”
Through HealthPoint Plus, patients typically receive a diagnosis and, if necessary, an e-prescription within 15 minutes. Patients who seek teletherapy have access to a network of licensed professional counselors, licensed clinical social workers, licensed marriage and family therapists and other equivalent licensed professionals.
“We are very much aligned with Alegeus in their mission to ensure consumers get the most for their healthcare dollar,” said Robert Goddard, Chief Executive Officer at HealthPoint Plus. “The expansion of our service through the Alegeus marketplace will not only provide a high-caliber patient experience, but also ensure healthcare cost savings for employers and consumers.”
