HOW THE CARD BENEFITS
For employees, the prepaid EOA Health Card is redeemable at select health care providers in the EOA network. Some of the providers are: medical, dental, chiropractors, optometry, massage therapists, hearing, midwifes, naturalistic doctors, pediatricians, acupuncture, veterinarians, and many more.
When using the card, employees contact the provider, make an appointment and mention that they are using the EOA Health Card. Some providers may have minimal restrictions on available services. Employees should login ahead of their appointment to see the card's balance. If the service provided costs more than the card balance, the employee will be responsible for the remaining balance at the time of service.
Bartering benefits businesses, healthcare providers and patients!
Bartering for healthcare benefits businesses, healthcare providers and patients. Alaskan business owners are bartering to get healthcare services they otherwise couldn’t afford. It’s a strategy that also offers benefits for the healthcare businesses providing the services. Bartering is being used to fill otherwise empty bookings.
The barter industry has seen growing demand over the past 8 years for healthcare services. For some small businesses, the motivation to barter for healthcare services is the bad economy. For others, it is new regulations requiring comprehensive healthcare coverage for employees.
Individual employees receive their own EOA Health Card from their employer. When the employee needs a visit to the dentist, for example, they use their prepaid card to pay for the participating dentist fees.
Credits received by the healthcare provider can then be exchanged for whatever other type of goods or service the provider may need.
