Higher Deductibles Bridge Gap Between Allergy Treatments

Allergy Drops Offer a More Convenient Path to Allergy Immunity, Now Comparably Priced to Pre-Deductible Allergy Shots

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 01/17/14 -- The beginning of this year marked the start of healthcare reform under the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. For many Americans, Obamacare means higher deductibles that seem to drive up our daily expenses for preventative care and wellness. In the past, relatively healthy and insured individuals thought little of maintenance medication expenses for minor but persistent conditions such as allergies. Today, changing deductibles present a unique opportunity for Americans to reconsider some of the medications they've long depended on.

Deductibles that were once met quickly will take more time to reach, thereby increasing the out-of-pocket expense of routine treatments, such as allergy shots. Chicago allergist Brian Rotskoff, MD is encouraging patients to consider allergy drops as an alternative allergy treatment. Comparable to the pre-deductible price of allergy shots, allergy drops offer the same powerful anti-allergen treatment in a far more convenient way.

"In the battle against allergies, each method of care has its own price point, level of convenience, and effectiveness," says Dr. Rotskoff. "Allergy drops are more convenient than shots and they're far more effective than over-the-counter options."

What are allergy drops?
Sublingual immunotherapy, or allergy drops, are placed underneath the tongue each day at home. Allergy drops use the same antigen formula as their shot counterparts. This allergy treatment has always been the more child-friendly, pain-less alternative to allergy shots, but now with comparable costs between the two treatments, Dr. Rotskoff is suggesting adults opt for the convenience of allergy drops.

When you visit Clarity Allergy Center in Chicago, Dr. Rotskoff will conduct an allergy test to isolate your allergy triggers and then custom blend your allergy drops formula. Dr. Rotskoff is one of the few allergists in the country to create this formula for his patients and stands behind its effectiveness.

"Many of my patients use allergy drops to manage pet allergies," says Dr. Rotskoff. "If you're allergic to pet dander, you probably don't have a cat or dog. But you may want to visit somebody that does. If you suffer from these allergies, there is no reason to be anti-social."

Allergy drops save time and sniffles
Compared to allergy shots which require routine visits to the doctor's office, allergy drops are taken at home each day and require only a few office visits for periodic formula updates. No more weekly office visits, thus eliminating frequent copays.

With continued use of allergy drops, patients will eventually develop a tolerance to allergens. Most patients see nearly complete desensitization to allergens after three to five years of using allergy drops. Meaning, in the future you'll save on prescription allergy treatments, over-the-counter medications, and maybe even tissues.

This year, consider allergy drops, the most convenient and effective way to build lasting immunity to your environmental and pet allergies. Save time and money by scheduling your allergy testing appointment at Clarity Allergy Center.
