Text-based smartphone app for primary care physician visits extended to all EPC benefit plan participants


98point6Effective immediately, access to 98point6, the newest benefit provided by EPC Benefit Resources, Inc., has been extended to all EPC benefit plan participants. 98point6 is a text-based primary care app for smartphones and tablets. This new benefit launched on March 14.

“Anyone enrolled in any of our plans can take advantage of this low-cost, high-value tool,” said Bart Francescone, BRI’s Executive Director. “This includes people in our dental, vision, life insurance, and disability programs—even if they are not in one of our medical plans. All they have to do is download the app and register using the name listed on their insurance card from any of our plans. No registration or membership fee is required.”

Through 98point6, a U.S.-based, board-certified physician is available by text 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The service is provided with no co-pay for participants in the Platinum, Gold, and Silver PPO Medical/Prescription Plans, and only a $5 co-pay for participants in all other benefit plans.

“This is a great resource for people who are forced to shelter in place and thus not able to get to a physician,” Francescone added. “It’s fast, easy, secure, and one of the most cost-effective ways out there to have personal communication with a physician.”
