I got a surprise the other day. I bought something new on-line and it actually worked the way it was supposed to work! I mean I signed up for the HealthiestYou program. You might know it as a telephone-doctor service. I can call for a doctor whenever I need one…no added costs…no waiting in an emergency room!
My personal physician changed to a specialty service. I couldn’t afford him anymore. I am 77 years old and I need to have a personal physician. So I thought I would sign up for this new telephone-doctor service.
Then I needed a doctor; I had this sinus problem. I couldn’t hear and my balance was bad. So I called and this is what happened. They answered the phone promptly. The woman asked for information about the prescriptions I take and about recent surgeries and illnesses (At least they weren’t going to try to fix my problem without knowing anything about my medical history.) The woman took all the information on the phone; I didn’t have to fill out any paperwork.
A doctor promptly called me and was very professional. We discussed my symptoms and he diagnosed the problem. He said there was a nasal spray that should fix my problem. He sent a prescription directly to my pharmacist; I didn’t have to do anything more. I just went to the drug store and picked up the prescription.
The new prescription started working right away. Wow!
I am impressed by the whole system. I didn’t have to fill out any insurance forms. I fact, I didn’t need any expensive health insurance. I just paid for the prescription, and received a huge discount on my medication thanks to HealthiestYou!
I was told that 70% of all medical problems can be solved on the phone (For the rest you need to see a regular doctor or go to an emergency room.) Imagine that: three out of four medical problems can be diagnosed and solved on the phone…and by a licensed doctor!
I can’t imagine anything easier. No forms to fill out. The doctor called me quickly and was very professional. The prescription was sent directly to my pharmacy…and the prescription’s cost was discounted. The system worked!
