Heal, a Los Angeles-based health care startup, has launched a new offering for individuals who are uninsured or underinsured. The company announced the rollout of “Heal Pass,” a monthly subscription program designed to keep clients at home and out of emergency rooms, which are increasingly becoming overcrowded due to the COVID-19 virus.
In launching the new program, Heal sought to provide an affordable in-home primary care option for individuals who are uninsured or underinsured. For $49 per month, Heal Pass enrollees receive eight physicians house calls, annual physicals, and next-day deliveries on medications prescribed by a Heal clinical professional. In terms of timing, Heal is rolling out the new program now to help mitigate some of the negative consequences of the ongoing public health emergency and its impact on the U.S. economy.
Heal will look to grow Heal Pass enrollment throughout 2020 while pursuing expansions into new markets. Additionally, the company will continue to explore partnerships with Medicare-certified home health provider organizations and non-medical home care agencies.
Heal is the market leader in physician house calls, using technology to re-humanize the practice of medicine and deliver better outcomes for clients. Offered throughout California, New York, New Jersey, Georgia, Virginia, Washington State, Maryland and Washington D.C., Heal has over 100 major corporate clients and is covered as an in-network benefit with Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield of California, CareFirst, Cigna, Health Net, Medicare, and United Healthcare.
