Making Employee Benefits Better

The Power of PAI's Partnership with First Stop Health

Since 2019, the increased need for virtual care options has become more evident than ever. Employers are searching for ways to limit healthcare spending while still providing quality benefits for their employees. Now, PAI’s partnership with First Stop Health, a leader in telemedicine, is transforming the way employees access healthcare, leading to improved health outcomes and better cost containment.

Quality Care: Anytime, Anywhere

Employees experience seamless access to quality doctors, all from the comfort of home. They can schedule virtual primary care visits and receive 24/7 doctor support for urgent care needs, such as sinus infections, sore throats, UTIs, and other minor illnesses, for a $0 consultation fee. Additionally, patients will always be connected with a doctor in 3 minutes or less. 

First Stop Health owns and operates its network, ensuring doctors have been board-certified for at least five years and specialize in emergency, internal, and family medicine. Additionally, doctors can write prescriptions during the consultation and send them to the pharmacy of choice of the member.

Virtual Mental Health

First Stop Health also offers access to mental health services. Licensed counselors can help with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and more. Counselors are available 24/7 and appointments can be scheduled within three days, compared to the national wait time of six weeks.1 Plus, First Stop Health doctors can refer patients to in-network professionals from the member’s medical plan.

The Push to Virtual Care 

A true trailblazer in the telemedicine industry, First Stop Health has a 45% employee utilization rate, showing the effectiveness and increasing popularity of virtual care options. 
Employers who implement First Stop Health ensure that their employees can receive timely, quality care without outrageous out-of-pocket costs.
