St. Petersburg, Fla. (October 29, 2012) – LOLA Health, a Tampa Bay based company, officially launches this week. LOLA Health will help ease the burden of increasing healthcare costs for physicians, patients and employers by facilitating a more direct relationship between the patient and physician, improving patient education and increasing access to all forms of preventative care. The Institute of Medicine recently released a study finding that approximately $750 billion a year, or about 30% of all healthcare spending, is “squandered” on inefficient systems, redundant care, fraud and other wastes. The services provided by LOLA Health can help to reduce that number while also improving overall health.
LOLA Health (www.LOLAHealth.com) is a web-based service that offers members access to healthcare education articles, a directory of local health, fitness, nutrition and wellness businesses, discounted healthcare services and products, and telemedicine plans featuring the ability to connect with nurses and physicians around the clock. LOLA Health is a wonderful alternative for anyone with little to no insurance. Additionally, LOLA Health pairs high deductible and catastrophic plans, health savings and reimbursement accounts (HSAs/HRAs) with tailored programs that meet consumers’ needs and makes their existing coverage more financially beneficial.
The newest service offered at LOLA Health is the Doctor Savings Program (DSP). DSPs are packaged healthcare programs offering customized and affordable healthcare services to patients from all walks of life. Don’t have insurance? Pre-existing condition? Not a problem. The cost is much lower than patients would pay for mainstream insurance plans and out of pocket expenses. Physicians are able to offer the reduced prices or payment programs because the direct pay arrangement eliminates the lengthy and complicated billing process. Registration on the site is free.
