NMLEA Addresses America's Number One Concern, and that of its Members: Healthcare
Capstone Health Network to Partner with
the National Maritime Law Enforcement Academy
Washington, DC - The National Maritime Law Enforcement Academy announced an innovative way to provide its members and associates with an advanced solution that makes healthcare faster, easier, convenient, and less expensive. Through a partnership with Capstone Health Network, the Academy joins 3,000,000 people who benefit from elements of this program which is reshaping healthcare for as little as $12.95 per month.
Capstone Health Network is a social good company with a big mission… improve healthcare accessibility and bring down the high cost of healthcare for individuals, families, and businesses. To accomplish these goals, Capstone has put together a national network of highly qualified, U.S.-based physicians, counselors, and healthcare patient advocacy professionals who are standing by to serve families 24 hours a day, every day of the year, including holidays and weekends. The headliner service available through Capstone Health Network is called “telemedicine.” This innovative healthcare delivery concept has been featured in the NY Times, Time Magazine, the Journal of the American Medical Association, and by ABC News.
“The high cost of healthcare and the uncertainty surrounding the American healthcare system are headline news,” said Mark DuPont, the Academy’s Executive Director. He pointed to a recent Gallup Poll released just last month that illustrated how 55 percent of Americans worry "a great deal" about the availability and affordability of healthcare. “They are more concerned about healthcare than crime and violence, federal spending, availability of guns, drug use, and illegal immigration, to name but a few of the 14 other issues mentioned in the poll,” said DuPont. (A link to the Gallup Poll conducted between March 1st through the 8th can be found here.)
"This concern about healthcare resonates with our members and the maritime public safety community we serve," continued DuPont. "And to address this need, we are partnering with Capstone Health Network, who provide a fast, modern, convenient, and affordable way to safeguard the health of you, your family, our members and their families," he added.
Jeff Roberts, the CEO of Capstone Health Network, said “we are very excited to make this program available to the Academy’s members, their families, their associates and their partners.” He provided some highlights of the program’s benefits. “The power of the program can best be described in these key points,” as he laid out them out in bullet form:
“There are no doctor bills, no co-pays, no deductibles, no contracts, and no exclusions for pre-existing conditions;
You can speak to a doctor 24/7/365 by phone or video from home or any location even on nights, weekends, or holidays;
You save hundreds to thousands of dollars annually on out-of-pocket medical bills that are not covered by insurance;
You can keep your doctor and current health insurance. No need to switch insurance plans, health networks, or doctors;
The program is ideal for the most common health issues which cause people to see a doctor such as a cold, flu, fever, sore throat, nausea, rash, ear aches, sinus infection, or to get answers to health questions;
The cost is as little as 43 cents per day to talk to Capstone’s telemedicine doctors versus $100-$1,000 to visit an Urgent Care or ER;
You can reduce missed work and lost wages due to illness, by talking to a doctor before or after work by phone or video chat;
And our board-certified physicians can prescribe and send non-narcotic prescription drugs to the local pharmacy of your choice.”
The program also provides Telephone-Based Counseling Services, which include the ability to speak to a Master’s level caring counselor 24/7/365 who will listen, provide guidance, and make referrals as needed. This valuable program includes an unlimited amount of 30-minute counseling sessions with the same experienced, compassionate counselor each time; and the ability to get help for life losses, relationship issues, depression, stress, anxiety, etc. All with no counselor fees, deductibles, or co-pays.
“In our Patient Advocate Services,” commented Roberts, “our trained specialists act as your personal advocate to help you find a new doctor, locate and compare high quality surgeons, assist with medical forms, negotiate with hospitals and medical providers to attempt to reduce large medical bills, identify opportunities to save money on prescriptions, and much more.”
DuPont concluded by saying “Our slogan is ‘Strength through Knowledge,’ and our mission is to serve those who serve others. This combination of telephonic medical services and this tremendous cost savings that members can now realize, will make an impact and will support our goals and objectives.”
