Rochester, NY, September 19, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- As the baby-boomer generation reaches their golden years, the rising average age of the population is beginning to put a strain on the Healthcare system. Healthcare companies are increasingly focusing on preventative medicine as one of the best ways to keep medical costs down and to keep these aging baby-boomers healthy longer. It has been proven that over-the-counter medicines can contribute to preventative care and can alleviate more expensive care such as hospital stays or extended outpatient care. This all adds up to a win for the patients who are receiving health benefits, as well as the insurance company because it is cheaper to keep someone healthy than it is to provide care once they are sick.
These benefits fall under Medicare Advantage, and individual Healthcare companies can decide how that they want to offer these benefits. One of the most popular benefits to offer has become and over-the-counter supplemental benefit that includes preventative items. The member is given a dollar allowance by their Healthcare Company to spend on an approved list of items with a mail order over-the-counter vendor. The member can select the items that they need and have them shipped directly to their door. Items can range from vitamins and minerals to incontinence supplies and pain relief. This type of benefit is a favorite with members because they get items that they would normally buy anyway without having to go to the store.
Small companies are starting to fill this need for preventative medical products for large Healthcare companies. OTC Benefit Solutions, a division of Fieldtex Products, Inc. is one of the premier providers of these benefits for Healthcare companies that offer Medicare Advantage. The company has been providing member benefits since 2008. The company is introducing new features each year to improve customer service and satisfaction. For 2015 they plan to add multi-language websites and increased access to active ingredient information, as well as an improved express mail-in order system. This all adds up to better value for Health Care companies and their members.
