Urgent 9 Launches New Website With Groundbreaking New Options For Patients To Save Money and Time On Doctor Consultations
June 20, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsJune 20, 2016 - In light of the massive changes ushered in by Obamacare, doctors are rethinking the way they can offer high quality treatment to their patients at an affordable price point. Urgent 9, a Glendale based practice and urgent care center, is taking the initiative on this sea change in the medical field by offering two creative new options that give patients additional flexibility.
Most notably, Urgent 9 has pioneered a medical innovation known as "Virtual Visits." These online video calls between patient and doctor allow an individual to quickly consult with their physician without having to physically be present. Although this arrangement is obviously not designed for a medical situation requiring physical proximity to a doctor, it is proving to be incredibly helpful and efficient when patients have quick questions or need a fast update on test results or treatment plans. Urgent 9 has now launched a fully functional virtual visit program that is one of the first of its kind in Los Angeles.
With insurance premiums on the rise, the medical marketplace has necessitated alternative ways for people of moderate means to access treatment without breaking the bank. As part of Urgent 9's push to establish themselves as one of the most forward thinking urgent care centers in California, they have launched a new "Everything Health Plan" for $499 that allows uninsured patients to receive a week of care. Critically, this plan addresses the increasing sentiment among ordinary citizens that quality health care is financially out of reach.
By launching a new website offering innovative solutions to common problems with the traditional health care industry, Urgent 9 is seeking to prove that patient needs can still be met even within an often restrictive and increasingly expensive landscape in the wake of Obamacare.
