What is the importance of HBG’s affiliate program?
Our Affiliates take part in creating solutions for our healthcare delivery system. Providers who have already joined the affiliate program are already starting to compete to earn the business of our clients by offering lowered prices but with higher quality of care. We want more providers to join this platform from both western style of medical methods and eastern styles. The birth of affiliate program came on the rise of healthcare reform.
How will the new health care reform affect everything?
More than anything right now people are fearful of mandates and the uncertainty of the affordable care act also the fear of losing their current coverage. There is trickery and deception in the “new affordable plans” being offered to consumers in light of their vulnerability. The two main things the Affordable Care Act is supposed to do is be more affordable and provide better coverage. Prices are not better and programs are actually inferior to what we had before. Our health care system is forever changed. The access is never going to be like it was before. So HBG is creating solutions to providing access to care at affordable prices.
Why is it that medical providers don’t view our business the same way?
Because we live in a medical era where we go to doctors that are handcuffed to reimbursement rates, and or what is considered “covered” by an insurance company. Historically, people are treated based on a standardized set of rules. But, providers can still play in this arena. Most of our Affiliates already offer many of their services for prices that fall below some co-pays and deductibles than their current insurance offers. Our affiliates want to earn your business, your trust and build back the relationships that have been damaged from insurance, government and mandated regulations getting in- between. As unfortunate as it is, we view this as an opportunity to get better, to create a better healthcare system for Arizona in general.
HBG wants to see this program expand significantly over the next few years. We are experts in helping businesses with customized health solutions. We want to encourage a culture of wellness / prevention and we have the resources to do so. We want to deliver healthcare in a superior quality of care and have reduced healthcare costs for all. That is what we are doing to evolve and this is a perfect time to do so.
