According to the Economic Policy Institute, 4 out of 5 of the more than 2 million domestic workers in the United States do not have access to healthcare. The current Covid-19 pandemic has not only highlighted the benefits of telemedicine but the tremendous ease and cost-effectiveness of obtaining coverage, especially for the underserved populations and those residing in rural areas. Among the current telemedicine providers, Vurgent Care is the most affordable and comprehensive telemedicine program in the United States available to domestic workers.
The lack of healthcare access for domestic workers is alarming. Among them, the vast majority (91.5%) are women, and just over half (52.4%) are Black, Hispanic, or Asian American/Pacific Islander women. Even more alarming is the number of domestic workers affected by mandatory shutdowns, who are either furloughed or left without jobs with no access to healthcare.
With the arrival of the Coronavirus, medical care has become a critical need for every American and their families. Telemedicine, by giving them access to medical professionals right from the comfort of their homes, limits their exposure by avoiding crowded waiting rooms and guarantees immediate care at an affordable price.
Compared to Healthline.com’s list of the top 10 telemedicine companies, the telemedicine services offered by Vurgent Care come out on top, with less cost, zero cost per visit, and greater coverage. Their telemedicine packages include consultations with board-certified physicians, mental health counseling, and healthcare advocacy. The membership features up to 7 dependents, unlimited calls, no co-pays or deductibles and no long-term contracts.
