Preferred Risk Administrators Announces Partnership with First Stop Health

According to a new announcement shared with MHW ahead of the weekend, Preferred Risk Administrators has partnered with First Stop Health to begin offering a new telemedicine service to employer groups across the county.

“Telemedicine is a service that allows a member to speak with a physician over the phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” a provided statement adds for further color. “There is no copay, deductible, or any other out-of-pocket expense for the member to pay for using the service.”

For certain illnesses, the company says, the physician is typically able to make a diagnosis over the phone and call in a prescription directly to the member’s pharmacy of choice.

“It really is a great benefit to offer to employees,” said Bob Dial, Vice President Preferred Risk Administrators. “First, the employee avoids paying an out-of-pocket copay or deductible for seeing a doctor. Second, they also avoid all of the hassle involved scheduling an appointment and making a trip to the doctor’s office. An added benefit to the First Stop Health telemedicine program, is that seven additional family members of each enrolled employee in the program may also use this service at no further cost.”
