NEW YORK, NY — New World Medical Network™ (New World) announces an agreement to provide its services to Botetourt County, Virginia with the roll-out of the all-inclusive One Price Healthcare® quality domestic medical tourism platform that will not only provide their employees significant savings on select procedures but also the assurance that the same transparent, reliable price for every procedure will be delivered.
“The leadership of Botetourt County has, like many municipalities, been searching for innovative ways to reduce their health costs without increasing deductibles and co-pays to the members. A strategy that includes transparent bundled pricing for elective medical services at prices less than the regional average can help save the County money and provide quality healthcare services to the members. When these savings are shared with employees, a major family budgeting need is also addressed; out-of-pocket costs. These savings are available for both employer and employee by using New World’s network of quality services from providers located in Oklahoma, Georgia and New York. This new transparent, bundled price model for members who elect to travel for treatment marks a pivotal shift in the way healthcare is delivered in the United States. We are optimistic that our agreement will result in a win-win for both employer and employee,” shared New World’s COO, Terry Johnson.
“As administrative executives in today’s governmental world, we have seen many of our costs rise, particularly as relates to health costs. Many factors have contributed to this issue, but we were surprised to learn of this new way to help reduce costs provided through New World Medical Network. We welcome the chance to both save money on health costs and to share these savings with our employees.” said David Moorman, Deputy County Administrator.
