SHOWBenefits® Changes the Telehealth Game.
Many small employer groups throughout America do not provide employer-sponsored health insurance options to their employees. Most business owners want to give their employees some benefit options but simply can’t afford the “employer responsibility” of premium cost-sharing. The “community-rated” plan options for small employer groups are expensive and even with the minimum employer contribution requirements, many times neither the employee nor employer can afford the premiums. Many employers, at a bare minimum, only offer their employees access to voluntary benefits and allow these premiums to be payroll deducted from the employee’s paycheck.
Competitive Health is proud to offer the small employer group marketplace coverage that most employers can afford. SHOWBenefits is a new mobile benefit solution that helps to address immediate out-of-pocket expenses to employees and their families. Many employers have chosen this program as a basic, affordable program that provides coverage to help address immediate employee healthcare costs. Provider services such as primary care, pediatric, and mental health access fees are typically only available through major medical insurance coverage and SHOWBenefits® provides access to a nationwide network of credentialed specialists. Going beyond major medical, SHOWBenefits® provides additional cost-saving services including medical bill negotiation services and deep discounts on dental, vision, labs, diagnostics, and even prescription costs.
SHOWBenefits® is available in 3 unique packages all with unlimited access to $0 copay telemedicine as its core feature. $0 copay telemedicine allows an employee to have a doctor’s consultation for the entire family, 24/7 and from the safety of their home. Telemedicine has quickly become the first service families turn to, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, when experiencing different symptoms such as cold and flu.
SHOWBenefits® packages, including the Enhanced and Premier Plan options, include many additional digital healthcare benefits such as dermatology, physical therapy, chronic care, teledentistry, and tele-veterinarian services, all through the convenience of one mobile application. With most of the 18 digital health specialties at a $0 copay, SHOWBenefits® helps to reduce barriers to care for the employee through a program that the business owners can afford to pay.
