MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., May 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The NFL Alumni (NFLA) and EZMedPartners today announces the launch of a new Discount Medical Plan that will be available to all NFL Alumni former player members and their immediate family.
"Helping our members maintain strong health and wellness is one of our top priorities, so I'm delighted to make this discount medical plan available to our members," said Joe Pisarcik, President and CEO of the NFLA. "Being able to provide a benefit like this has been a goal of ours and the convenience of the Teladoc™ service will definitely be a huge help to our alumni."
The Discount Medical Plan features four valuable benefits including Telehealth, Vision, Dental, and Pharmacy discounts. Through this new benefit, former players and their immediate family will have access to Teladoc, the leading and fastest-growing telemedicine company in the country. Teladoc connects patients with U.S. board-certified, state-licensed physicians by phone with an average of 15 years of medical practice experience.
"Teladoc is becoming especially popular because it can provide easy access to physicians at any time of the day, which is a convenient offering that patients have never really experienced," said Gary Reasons, Founder and CEO of EZMedPartners. "We are looking forward to our relationship with the NFL Alumni and being able to provide its members with meaningful services."
"Sometimes when you're dealing with a busy schedule or you're feeling under the weather, you tend to put off taking the time and effort to see a doctor. That's where this plan can certainly help," added Mr. Pisarcik. "Members and their immediate family will have access to physicians for medical consultations at any time and from anywhere, and I believe that's going to be extremely convenient."
EZMedPartners is a national agency offering discount health benefits that provide convenience, value, and savings to members of the company's Discount Medical Plan. The company was founded by former NY Giant linebacker, Gary Reasons, whose goal was to provide convenient and affordable benefits that would provide an alternative to individuals, families, and businesses as they contend with ever-rising health care costs. EZMedPartners, based in McKinney, Texas, offers individual membership nationally to its Discount Medical Plan online through the company's website, www.ezmedpartners.com.
