In 2019, many Americans were feeling the pinch of healthcare costs. From premiums and deductibles to surprise bills and prescription drug prices, receiving care this year has been anything but affordable.
The average American spent nearly $11,500 on healthcare costs in 2019. And families could face even steeper chargers with the average U.S. family spending as much as a new Harley Davidson motorcycle each year to ensure the health of their family.
But these incidents aren’t isolated. People all over the country are feeling the effects of the rising cost of healthcare.
This year, nearly two-thirds or 66.5% of bankruptcies in the country were related to the inability to afford the cost of medical treatment.
Though, what can be done to change our current course and redirect the healthcare industry toward care and coverage people can afford? The answer is to invest in companies working towards that goal.
Companies like Hooray Health are motivated by a mission to reduce costs and increase care by partnering with companies looking to do the same. Hooray Health plans that start at under $100 for a member and provides access to industry leaders, including CVS, Concentra, MedExpress, among thousands of other independent retail clinics and urgent care partners in 46 states.
Hooray Health opens lines of communication between care providers and members by offering a reliable 24-hour telemedicine service at no extra charge. Members have unlimited access to consultations with U.S. board-certified physicians who can diagnose and prescribe treatment for acute illnesses.
And their prescription discount card, powered by ScriptSave WellRx, saves members as much as 80% on generic and name brand prescriptions.
Hooray Health and companies like them are essential conductors of change in the healthcare industry. By changing the way people pay for and access care, they create a transparent and straightforward process of doing business that has become absent in healthcare. And in turn, they create a better life for thousands of Americans. A life free of fear from medical costs and inaccessible treatment. And that’s something worth cheering about.
