NEW YORK, June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- New York Comprehensive Medical Care, Long Island's premiere Primary Care and Cardiology clinic, announced today the launch of Pilip Healthcare, an affordable and convenient online medical service. Patients will benefit from access to an immediate connection to a doctor within the comfort of their homes, anytime and anywhere. Pilip Healthcare comes at a time of skyrocketing insurance costs and increasing difficulty in securing physician appointments.
With health premiums now, on average, at $500-$1,500 a month and yearly deductibles topping $5,000 or even $10,000 annually, healthcare is often a luxury that many consumers can't afford. The Congressional Budget Office's recent report has declared that the new Healthcare bill, if passed, would leave an estimated 24 million more people without healthcare by 2026. The need for convenient, cheap medical care has never been greater.
The overall price tag of healthcare in the United States is at historic levels, making it unsustainable. A recent article by PBS quotes the Department of Health and Human Services data that National health expenditures will hit $3.35 trillion this year, which equates to $10,000 for each person. Close to $1 trillion is spent on hospital care. Getting medical care within hours of being sick minimizes unnecessary costs associated with ER visits, and in some cases very expensive hospital care. The New York Times has recently published an article which clearly shows the disparity in life spans by as much as 10-15 years of rich and poor is on the rise, mainly due to the lack of affordable and available medical care.
Physician insurance reimbursements have been decreasing for years, which has directly caused an increase in the number of patients they see per day, resulting in long wait periods to see a doctor. In addition, wait times on arrival are often 1-2 hours, and evening and middle of the night visits are almost impossible. According to Forbes, U.S. workforce illness costs $576 billion annually from sick days which Pilip Healthcare aims to reduce by treating patients when they first notice an acute illness.
"Pilip Healthcare is a perfect blend of telemedicine and concierge care, where now you can feel like you have a physician inside your home at any time of day or week," says Dr. Pilip, Founder and CEO of Pilip Healthcare. "For only twenty dollars a month, patients can have immediate access to a primary care doctor that can treat most acute and chronic illnesses at the moment a person becomes sick. Getting medical care within hours of being sick minimizes sick days, and unnecessary costs associated with ER visits, and in some cases, very expensive hospital stays. We are thrilled to bring quick, easy and affordable medical access to Americans across the country."
