Information for Managed Care Organizations

  • Are you continually looking for ways to prevent illnesses and boost the health of your members, thereby reducing your health care costs?
  • Would you like to introduce cost-effective, scientifically proven, health improvement products exclusively to your members at discounted rates?
  • Are you concerned about finding better and more effective ways to serve your members' needs in order to retain and even increase your membership?
  • Would you like to offer your members self-administered smoking cessation and weight loss tools that involve no participation from your end?

If you've answered yes to the above questions, then you've come to the right place. Our smoking cessation product - QuitKey , weight loss Product - DietMate, and sleep aid - SleepKey can help your members maintain healthy lifestyle thereby reducing your health care costs.

Health care costs are continuing to soar. Recent statistics show that cigarette smoking has a significant impact on rising health care costs and the overall health of your members. The extra costs of having members who smoke are obvious – both in the short term and the long term. Smokers are vulnerable to several diseases and health problems like emphysema, heart disease and cancers of the lungs, mouth, and throat to name a few. Smokers prove to be very expensive for Managed Care Organizations.

At any given time, 65% of the adult population in the United States is on some type of diet, and another 15% should consider starting one. A great majority will lose weight only to regain it a few months later. Obesity causes several health problems that require costly treatments. In addition, high cholesterol and hypertension also lead to chronic diseases and result in long term, expensive treatments.

Now you can provide your members with a safe, effective and a scientifically proven way to end their smoking habit, lose weight, and stay healthy. Not only will our products help your members live a healthy life, but they will also help reduce your health care expenses.
