Health Care Discount Enrollment Programs

Code: LH-6300.2400

Programs that offer discounts in the cost of medical, dental, vision, pharmaceutical and other health care services through an enrollment program for people wanting access to lower-cost health care delivery. Normally a stand-alone alternative to traditional health insurance, these programs may be offered by employers or purchased directly as a supplemental benefit package. The programs enlist providers that agree to offer their services at discount prices, enroll people who want the coverage, and issue discount cards and a provider list. The public gets a discount on covered health care at the point of service, providers increase their cash flow and avoid expenditures associated with processing insurance forms and the program itself gets revenue from enrollment fees.
