Doctor On Call Physician Healthline Adds Prescription
Discount Feature To Service
OK — July 14, 2003 — Oklahoma City-based Doctor On
Call, LLC, the sole provider of a national 24-hour physician hotline,
announced today a partnership with ScripSolutions to offer a discount
prescription program as an added feature for Doctor On Call members.
Through this program, brand-name prescriptions are available at discounts
up to 15 percent off retail prices and generic prescriptions
are available at discounts up to 50 percent off retail prices.
Consumers can receive these savings simply by showing their Doctor
On Call membership card at more than 45,000 pharmacies nationwide,
including major chains.
"The immediate access to board certified physicians that
Doctor On Call provides makes it a valuable service that helps
people make more informed health care decisions and reduces unnecessary
medical expenses," Doctor On Call chief executive officer
Karl Nigg said. "This partnership with ScripSolutions is
the perfect complement to our service because it gives members
the opportunity to save even more money through Doctor On Call
when health problems arise."
The Doctor On Call national physician
network has quietly provided service to approximately 20,000 members
since 1995. The success of the healthline, combined with the public's growing need
for immediate access to physicians, prompted a national rollout
earlier this year.
The Doctor On Call service is available 24 hours
a day and seven days a week, including holidays. Members pay a low annual
fee that entitles them to unlimited calls and unlimited minutes. Members
are issued a personal PIN number and utilize a toll-free number
for immediate access to a Board Certified physician. With 240 board
certified physicians currently on the network, Doctor On Call is
the only health information service staffed exclusively by doctors.
