It is no secret that healthcare costs are spiraling out of control. Even if you have employer health coverage or a plan on the Affordable Care Act, doctor’s visits and prescriptions can still force you to pay huge deductibles before your coverage kicks in to cover costs. HealthiestYou is here to help cut costs for consumers, employers, and insurance companies by directing users to the most efficient, affordable and convenient route of care. If you are feeling ill, there is no need to end up at the emergency room or suffer until a primary care physician can get you in to see them. The HealthiestYou app is making healthcare “smart” by allowing you to consult with a doctor 24/7. A user survey they conducted shows “the most common reasons for doctor’s visits include: bronchitis, earache, sore throat, pink eye and strep throat.” Over the phone or through video chat, the doctor can accurately diagnose these and other common conditions, call the prescription into the pharmacy of your choice, and you are on your way to a healthier day.

Just type in the prescription name and a list of pharmacies and prices in your area will appear.
