PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Affordable Care Act has already made certain health care services more accessible and affordable, but today's uninsured individuals still cannot afford the high cost of even the most basic health care services. Sprighealth.com offers a solution for uninsured individuals in the Northwest. This online marketplace allows consumers to book services with a variety of medical providers in Portland at steep discounts of 50 percent or more, no insurance required.
"Skyrocketing costs have put health care out of reach for too many people in our communities. Our transparent, simple and affordable model has opened doors that were previously closed to uninsured individuals in Portland," said Sprig President Kris Gorriaran. "For example, patients are normally charged $425 for a woman's wellness exam. Using Sprig to book and pay $180 for the same visit. This represents a significant savings to the patient."
