Its an online shopping site for local cash healthcare services in upstate South Carolina that works like Kayak.com but for healthcare. uMedMarket can be used two ways:
- Online Shopping: uMedMarket.com allows employees to shop online for cash discounted medical care by service and lists price, general location and provider ratings. They purchase online and the provider contacts them directly to schedule service. If an employee needs a service not on our list, they can simply contact us and we will find the best available service at the best price.
- The Concierge Service: Concierge shopping is for high cost medical services. With this service we will shop any high cost service an employee needs, from knee surgery to cardiac bypass surgery. We will find options for them based on their priorities. If the priority is the highest quality provider with the greatest experience, we can find that for them. If the priority is cost, we can find several options for them with high quality providers in the USA that will likely be less than half the cost of the same service at the local hospital. For very high-cost medical or surgical procedures that are not covered by insurance, they can also consider a high quality international provider at very competitive cash prices. If they are interested concierge service, they just complete an online request.
It depends on how much your employees use their healthcare. For each service, your employees/company can save up to and beyond 50% of the usual costs of healthcare. So if there is high utilization and lots of procedures like MRIs, then both you and your employees are likely to save big. This works best if employees are financially incentivized to use uMedMarket.com. Contact us here see how uMedMarket can work for your benefits plan and how much you can save.
Online shopping and Concierge Service is available at no direct cost to employers. uMedMarket is compensated by a commission on each sale. We can negotiate a custom arrangement with employers to creat their own website linked to uMedMarket to track savings and incentivize employees to use online shopping.
