May 21, 2015, Minneapolis, MN – Meeting the needs of the increasingly technology savvy consumers, IHC Specialty Benefits, a member of the The IHC Group, announced today the addition of Telemedicine to its line of ancillary health products.

IHC’s new Telemedicine product bundles four benefits in one plan for individual or family. These benefits include: telephone or online video consultation, patient advocacy, Best Health website access, and vision discount program:

  • Connect to a national network of board certified doctors at any time of the day, just $15 per call. With an average of 15-years of medical experience, on-call physicians will deliver reliable consultation and prescription, if necessary, within minutes to consumers.
  • Patient advocacy is provided on behalf of the consumer in the event of large out-of-pocket expenses associated with high-deductible health plans, out-of-network charges or expensive prescription drugs.
  • Vision discount program for Telemedicine members includes significant savings on eye exams, lenses, frames and additional eyewear options.
  • Best Health is an informative website designed to help consumers make healthy lifestyle choices and stay informed on common medical conditions. Consumers can learn about fitness trends, discover new recipes and diet tips, as well as watch videos about nutrition and fitness.

“We all lead very full lives juggling many things, including rising healthcare costs and time management. What to do when you’re on a business trip and feel a sudden fever come on, or your child is sick in the middle of the night? A safe and speedy solution is to get a reliable consultation over the phone, saving time and cost,” said Dave Keller, Chief Marketing Officer of IHC Specialty Benefits. “Our goal is to develop products that make sense and add value for our consumers and our new Telemedicine is a must-have for today’s hardworking generation stretched for both time and money.”
