SnapHealth offers a new way for insured, uninsured and cash-pay patients to find and pay lower, transparent rates on cash-based healthcare services for doctor visits, dentists and specialty doctors such as OB-GYN, eye doctors and more. With nearly 25 percent of Texas’ population uninsured, the is designed to give Texans affordable, accessible prices on healthcare services by offering $2,000 toward healthcare bills. In addition, SnapHealth’s free, open market healthcare is ideal for the growing population of consumers with high deductible healthcare plans, now offered by 38 percent of local Houston companies, according to the Mercer 2011 National Survey of Employee-Sponsored Plans.
“SnapHealth is the solution to several complex healthcare problems out there today and truly empowers the patient to make their own value-based decisions on healthcare,” said David Wong, SnapHealth CEO and Co-Founder. “From my experience in the ER, I was able to see the problem first-hand with consumers that were uninsured or on high deductible healthcare plans (HDHP) coming to the ER to receive care for situations that really were not deemed emergencies because it was their only option. We set out at SnapHealth to create a whole new way to have access to affordable rates for basic doctor’s office visits.”
“A definite challenge with our current healthcare system is lack of transparency,” said Chris Langan, COO and Co-Founder. “Few doctors and patients actually know the cost of a doctor’s office visit, lab test or procedure. Those with high deductible plans or no health insurance are left to navigate on their own. We think it’s time for that to change, which is what we plan to do with SnapHealth.”
