LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kumba Health, the premier high quality, direct-pay healthcare network, announced today that it is launching a new membership portal that enables patients to have access to the top doctors in Los Angeles with complete pricing transparency.
Jay Goss, Kumba Health COO, said, “With Kumba, patients gain premium access to top quality physicians in their area – access they would not otherwise have – and at reduced rates in comparison to out-of-network prices. Think of this as concierge light, but without the giant upfront cost.”
As more people transition to high deductible insurance plans, and as more doctors opt out of insurance plans altogether, many patients are experiencing high out-of-pocket costs, long waits and short visits with their doctors. Kumba Health seeks to alleviate this pain by giving everybody access to top-level physicians, labs, imaging centers and urgent care facilities – access that the current benefits system simply does not provide.
Because Kumba patients pay directly for services (also called “cash pay” or “self pay”) they get access to lower prices, complete pricing transparency and expedited appointments. With 30+ medical specialties covered, patients can easily find specialized providers, see their prices, and book an appointment online. Also, patients that have an HSA or FSA can utilize their pre-tax savings to pay for Kumba services.
A Kumba Health membership will be offered at $9.99 per month, or $99 per year. Patients can enjoy a free trial of the membership for 30 days. Employers can also offer it to their employees at a discounted rate.
