Health Nation Podcast: 50 Million Americans Without Health Care

Admin . Posted in Articles 289 No Comments

Healthcare and health insurance have become hot-button issues in the United States in recent years. Politicians are all over the news arguing and jockeying for position on this issue, and no one seems to be able to come up with a viable solution. More than 50 million Americans are living without health insurance today, and more than 7 million of them are children. More than 80 percent of the uninsured are working class families. Frankly, these 50 million Americans simply don’t have time to wait on the government to figure this problem out; they need a solution today. One company may just have that solution.

HealthNation is the premier provider of telemedicine services in the United States, and the HealthNation Connect Program aims to solve the day-to-day healthcare needs of the working class American family. “Telemedicine” is consultation with a doctor through secure email, phone, and video. Surprisingly, most doctors have stated that the vast majority of their consultations could just as easily be handled with a phone call or videoconference. Perhaps even more surprisingly, more than 90% of all telemedicine consultations result in successful diagnosis and prescription.

With a telemedicine program like HealthNation Connect, a patient has access to doctors 24 hours per day, seven days per week. No more waiting for an appointment to open up with the family doctor, no more driving to an office, and no more waiting for hours to be called into an appointment. Average wait times for consultations in the HealthNation Connect Program are only 20 minutes, and HealthNation promises that patients will never wait for more than three hours for a telemedicine consultation. Needless to say, time savings are substantial.

Time savings aside, most families are generally more concerned with the financial ramifications that healthcare brings. 50 million Americans are uninsured, and the biggest reason why is cost. An entire family, even without health insurance, can participate in the HealthNation Connect Program for only $ 30 per month! 24/7 access to physicians, electronic medical records storage, diagnoses, and prescriptions can be had by a family of four on less than $ 10 per month per patient.

So while our country sits and waits for our politicians to come to an agreement (politicians agreeing?) on a solution for the rising healthcare costs, 50 million uninsured Americans now have an option to keep their families healthy. Telemedicine is likely to become a massive trend in the US, and HealthNation is ahead of the curve.

Health Nation is the #1 Telemedicine Provider in the United States offering families 24/7 access to doctors. For more information please visit
