BumblebeeMD Generates Buzz with ‘One Card, Six Sweet Benefits’

There’s plenty of buzz surrounding a new launch, the details of which MHW was made privy to this week.

Medical expenses are soaring: insurance premiums and out-of-pocket costs total about $26,000 for the typical working family of four, according to the most recent McMillian Medical Index. With the cost of telehealth services about 50 percent lower than visiting a doctor in person, and 95 percent lower than an ER visit, interest in telehealth is growing.

And while much of the growth in telehealth is currently driven by insurers including it in their group coverage plans, a new direct-to-consumer telehealth company, BumblebeeMD, focuses on meeting the needs of busy individuals and families.

That’s the official word shared with MHW in a provided statement.

So how does it work?

BumblebeeMD aims to take the sting out of healthcare costs and complexities. With “One Card – Six Benefits,” and after paying a minimal annual fee, members gain free, unlimited access to a range of health-focused services, such as consultations with locally-licensed doctors, medical bill negotiation and more. And they can use all benefits at their convenience, as often as they choose, and at no extra charge via phone, computer, or smart device.

“BumblebeeMD is not a replacement for health insurance,” said Jennifer Stoll, Chief Commercial Officer for BumblebeeMD. “We help members manage out-of-pocket healthcare costs and provide them with access to experts to assist them in navigating healthcare’s challenging, and what can be confusing, landscape.”

We’re told that members get six convenient, money saving benefits with their BumblebeeMD card. To find out about these benefits, check out the company online here.
