UMA Health Fills Important Gap in Trump's Insurance Rule Cut

NEW YORK, Oct. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- UMA Health (UMA) announced today its insurance-free, affordable health care marketplace is the ideal way for patients to shop for doctors while taking advantage of President Trump's changes to the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare.

By allowing individuals to join cross-state health associations, tens of millions of them will now be eligible for less-expensive insurance. They will be able to once again buy catastrophic-only coverage as they could before the advent of The Affordable Care Act.

As this transition takes place, they will increasingly pay doctors directly and will benefit from a marketplace in which to do so.

In an editorial, Senator Rand Paul said, "This is what real free market replacement looks like." He continued, "Association Health Plans will be among the biggest free-market reforms of health care in a generation, and it will do more to counter the impact of Obamacare than most of the repeal bills did, because it will actually go after regulations that the legislation didn't touch due to Senate rules."

Direct-Pay doctor site, UMA Health, is the first to allow patients who have no insurance, high-deductibles, or catastrophic plans to shop, pay direct and save. Best of all, there are no additional, membership or recurring fees for patients to use UMA.

In addition, UMA gives patients access to some of the best doctors - tens of thousands of them have left insurance due to its red tape and low reimbursement rates.

"Patients should be able to shop for health care just like they shop for anything else," said UMA founder Dr. Pedram Hendizadeh. He continued, "We developed this platform to solve the biggest insurance-related health care problems I witnessed in my own practice."

UMA Health allows doctors of all specialties to create a completely free profile with their services and pricing and patients are able to book appointments based on price, distance, ratings, and availability.

The platform is cash-pay (credit card), bypassing insurance entirely.

By using UMA Health, patients can save money and doctors can offer lower rates since they don't have the insurance costs which can be more than 60% of their overhead expenses.

Patients know exactly what they pay and they no longer receive surprise bills in the mail. As premiums continue to rise and insurance becomes less affordable, we expect the free-market to be the solution to the nation's health care crisis.

Dr. Hendizadeh is available to speak about UMA and why for the majority of Americans, health insurance is not the same as health care and how UMA is the ideal solution for a growing number of patients. 

Please contact us to set up a time to talk to Dr. Hendizadeh and learn more!

UMA connects self-paying patients to doctors, therapists, dentists and psychologists and is currently providing doctors in the NYC area and growing quickly. Our platform connects patients with doctors but skips insurance. Unlike insurance, there are no surprise bills to follow. It allows patients to find doctors based on cost, distance, ratings and availability. Book an appointment online at umahealth.com.
