Starting today Hispanic consumers have easier access to an average of 17-25 percent savings on a healthcare savings card. The Spanish language version of the BodyGuard Card is now available, closely following the introduction of the English language version in January 1999. The Spanish language version even has its own Web site, http://spanish.bodyguardcard.com.
This low cost program is intended to provide healthcare services to those who may not have access to health insurance. The card costs $69 per year for an individual, $79 for an individual and spouse, or $89 for a family, and carries a 90-day money back guarantee. The program gives consumers access to preferred provider organizations for such services as:
The same discounts, savings, quality assurance and selection advantages that are available through insurance programs will be available with the BodyGuard Card. In fact, savings as high as 60% can be achieved.
Using the card is easy. The member simply shows his or her card to a participating provider. The provider then applies the negotiated PPO discount and collects payment for the services rendered. Thats it. There are no deductibles or maximums, no claim forms, and anyone may join, regardless of ageor health status. There are seven separate specialty PPOs with more than 78,000 pharmacies and providers nationwide, with over 10,000 in California alone. The seven Bodyguard PPO partners are:
–American Dental Network (ADN)
–Capp Care (podiatry)
–Eye Care International (ECI)
–Family Chiropractic America (FCA)
–National Ear Care Plan (NECP)
–Prescription Drugs (PCS)
The Hispanic community has historically had limited access to quality health insurance. A recent study revealed that only one third of Latinas in California have insurance. The new Bodyguard Card may be just what the doctor ordered. Get further information, or apply via their Web site, or by calling 800-991-0006.
