98point6 Announces 24/7 Availability of On-Demand Primary Care Solution
98point6’s Board-Certified Physicians Now Available Around the Clock in All 50 States
SEATTLE – May 15 – 98point6, an on-demand primary care service that delivers personalized consultation, diagnosis and treatment to patients across the country, today announced 24/7 availability. With board-certified physicians operating in all 50 states, 98point6 now provides patients access to affordable, high-quality primary care anytime, anywhere.
To provide patients primary care around the clock, 98point6 leverages machine learning and automation, helping doctors optimize and complete tasks that don’t require direct physician interaction. Rather than having doctors handle administrative tasks, 98point6’s AI technology does it for them. Patient profiles are automatically built and the 98point6 system learns from each visit, avoiding redundancy. As a result, 98point6 members consistently experience an in-app resolution rate above 90 percent.
“Today marks another significant milestone for 98point6. The ability to provide primary care, anytime, anywhere is a tremendous step towards improving quality of life and health outcomes for individuals and communities across the country,” said Robbie Cape, CEO and co-founder of 98point6. “Now, from New York to Hawaii, patients everywhere have access to 24/7 care in the palm of their hand.”
Anyone 18 years and older—whether they have health insurance or not—can download the 98point6 app and subscribe to a Personal Plan for an introductory rate of $20 per year. That covers all the primary care visits a patient needs, all year long, for one flat fee (note, a nominal visit fee may apply in some states with some plans – see app for details). 98point6 is also available through Sponsored Plans that are covered by an employer or health plan.
The news comes on the heels of the company’s announcement of nationwide availability earlier this year. Last month, Banner|Aetna selected 98point6 as its virtual primary care solution bringing the total number of members under contract to over 250,000 since the launch of the service last year.
