by Mike Hunter

HealthiestYouScottsdale-based HealthiestYou offfers an innovative health and wellness technology platform designed to help cut costs for consumers, employers and insurance companies by directing users to the most efficient, affordable and convenient route of care. Directing medical claims out of traditional insurance plans, HealthiestYou serves as a complement to primary care that can be an added component in benefit plans, ultimately reducing healthcare overhead for employers and insurance providers by reducing claims.

Consulting with a doctor 24/7 through the HealthiestYou app is as simple as tapping a button. According to user survey information, the most common reasons for doctor’s visits include bronchitis, earache, sore throat, pink eye and strep throat. The HealthiestYou service can, accurately and conveniently, diagnose these and other common conditions over the phone or through video chat.

In addition to eliminating copays or spending dollars toward a deductible, HealthiestYou can help save on prescription costs. Most people choose the pharmacy closest to home to fill prescriptions because of convenience, but common medications can vary in price dramatically between pharmacies. According to a Consumer Reports survey, there was a $749 difference between the highest- and lowest-priced stores for a month’s supply of the five top-selling prescription drugs. HealthiestYou can locate the lowest price for a prescription at nearby pharmacies with a simple search using the smartphone app.

The company was recently ranked No. 846 on the 2015 Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
