New Programs Offer Creative Benefits and Savings to Companies and Their Employees

Company offers non-insurance benefits at affordable cost.
Louisville, KY (PRWEB) November 19, 2009 -- Get Smart Benefits, LLC, a Louisville, Kentucky-based firm is opening their online benefits, services and products to employers across the country. With the launch of GetSmartBenefits.com, companies large and small can help their employees supplement insurance coverage at no cost to the employer and with significant savings to the employee.

“It’s a win-win service that has come at a time when we have tightened our benefits for employees in order to maintain affordable but comprehensive coverage,” says Rhonda Hatfield, owner of Little Scholars Child Care. “We can supplement existing insurance coverage with non-insurance benefits that include prescription discounts, 24-hour TeleDoc® services, as well as dental and medical service discounts. We were offered with several packages to choose from and the employees picked the one that best fit their needs, all of them under $20 per month” says Hatfield.

“More than 30 individual services are available to program members. We’ve discovered that people need AFFORDABLE 24-hour medical service convenience and want to package their discounts according to their lifestyle. Many members use services on a weekly to monthly basis, so the savings can be substantial. Members have reported saving over $300 in the first month of use,” according to Kris Wissing, Senior Advisor at Get Smart Benefits. “All of our services and discounts can be conveniently found in one place, on the web site; need a dentist, locate a chiropractor, find golf savings in your area, discounts on dining, find a pharmacy & get real time quotes on your current medical prescription.”

Two popular benefits offered by Get Smart Benefits are:

1. LifeLock The industry leader in proactive identity theft protection offers a proactive solution to help protect your identity from being stolen before it happens. If your identity is stolen, you can spend hundreds of hours cleaning up your credit and struggling to get back your good name. That's because stolen identities are used up to 30 times, with most victims only discovering the theft after they've been turned down for a loan or contacted by a collection agency. You may already be a victim, many times over, and not even know it. But not with LifeLock.

2. TelaDoc™ - A national network of board certified, licensed primary care physicians (PCP) that diagnose illness, recommend treatment, and prescribe medication, when appropriate, for its members over the telephone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. TelaDoc is a convenient, cost-effective alternative for minor medical problems and a current solution for the health care issues of cost and access. TelaDoc™ services do not replace the care of the PCP …they complement and enhance the quality of care. TelaDoc physicians are trained and experienced in telephone based cross coverage. They must also meet our strict physician credentialing guidelines
