HILLSBORO, Ore., April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ZOOM+, the innovator of on-demand healthcare and Performance Health Insurance, today announced lower health insurance rates for small businesses with up to 50 workers. In a special session, the Oregon Insurance Division allowed ZOOM+ to reduce its small business rates by an average of 11 percent. Small businesses enrolling after April 1, 2016 are eligible.
Several iconic Portland technology, food and beverage, and start up companies including Imperial, Response Capture, and Daily Café have recently signed up for ZOOM+Performance Health Insurance.
"We chose ZOOM+Performance Health Insurance because so many of our employees were already familiar with the clinics. The convenience of the locations and being able to quickly get an appointment with a healthcare provider were selling points," said Andrea Smith, owner of The Daily Café.
"With ZOOM+, we could tell our team and new hires we have ZOOM+ rather than just 'health insurance' like other companies," says Troy O'Bryan, founder of Response Capture. "Our whole team gets on-demand access to all our care with the ZOOM+App. This helps keep us in the game when we're sick. ZOOM+Performance helps us kick butt when we're not. ZOOM+ is also quick to respond to any questions about our plan or individual benefits," Troy said. "Just last week, we received a call from ZOOM+ to schedule a visit to ZOOM+Performance for our team."
"We are delivering on our mission of Twice Half Ten healthcare: twice the health, half the cost and ten times the delight," said Dave Sanders M.D., CEO and co-founder of ZOOM+. "Our innovative solution reduces costs and provides radical access to on-demand care you schedule on your smartphone. Portland is a hotbed for creative companies that think out of the box and are attracted to the unique approach we're taking to insurance and healthcare."
These new rates apply to ZOOM+Performance Health Insurance Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum offerings. All plans provide members access to complete care including ZOOM+'s innovative on-demand system of urgent, primary, and speciality care clinics. Silver, Gold and Platinum plans feature unlimited free ZOOM+Care visits, while the Bronze plan allows three free ZOOM+Care visits. Employers can enroll and pay online with support and guidance from ZOOM+ throughout the process.
