CirrusMD, a text-first virtual care solution, today announced that it was selected by Businessolver, the leader in SaaS-based benefits technology and services, as part of the MyChoiceSM Market benefits marketplace. Individuals moving into a benefits ineligible status, as well as those terminated or furloughed from employment, can have instant, text-first access to physicians through the CirrusMD platform. The platform is accessible 24/7 via app or web and delivers virtual primary care, behavioral health, urgent care, pediatric, and other specialty care.
CirrusMD enables employees to access a live physician from any web-enabled device, with no upfront paywalls, waits, or appointments. The platform’s unique text-first, continuous-conversation design allows individuals to control the flow of the conversation and check in wherever, whenever they need care. By selecting CirrusMD and its provider network, Businessolver is offering a flexible way to help people more effectively receive care and navigate through healthcare challenges during this difficult time.
“The current COVID-19 pandemic has brought uncertainty to employers and employees alike, especially when it comes to providing and accessing critical medical-related benefits for terminated or furloughed employees,” said Sherri Bockhorst, Businessolver’s SVP of Product Strategy and Innovation. “CirrusMD’s human-centered, text-based approach to virtual care ensures that individuals and their families impacted by the current economic downturn have access to affordable coverage, now and in the future, regardless of their current state of work.”
Businessolver’s MyChoice Market provides access to comprehensive health insurance coverage options, including medical, vision, and dental, ACA-compliant plans, Medicare plans, and other supplemental products. Additionally, it includes complimentary access to licensed Benefits Advisors to help employees research, compare, and select best-fit plans. CirrusMD was selected for the MyChoice Market benefits marketplace alongside national payers, including Anthem, Humana, Kaiser Permanente, Cigna, and more.
“As a doctor, my first priority continues to be providing patients with quality, accessible care, both in the emergency room and on the CirrusMD telemedicine platform,” said Blake McKinney, M.D., co-founder, and chief medical officer at CirrusMD. “I’m proud to be partnering with Businessolver to ensure employees, who have been terminated or furloughed during this time and are unsure of where to turn to get care for themselves and their families, have barrier-free access to high-quality care, whenever and wherever.”
