The affordable monthly membership can save Americans thousands of dollars when they visit a doctor.
There are currently over 86 million uninsured and underinsured people in the US. Visiting a doctor can result in bills costing thousands of dollars, frequently resulting in Americans avoiding getting the medical attention they need rather than risk being in debt.
Mira developed an affordable option for people who want to know what numbers to expect each time they go to the doctor. For a $25 to $45 monthly fee on their plans, people can go to urgent or primary care for a $99 co-pay (versus the usual $250-$400).
It covers lab tests, X-rays, examinations, and plenty more so there is no surprise bill at the end. Mira can also get you up to 80% off for generic prescriptions and only charges a $55 fee for preventative healthcare visits. Appointments can be easily booked through their web app.
It’s not a full replacement for health insurance as it doesn’t cover hospital stays. However, it can make routine health care much more accessible for those who may otherwise not be able to afford it. They plan to expand to children’s health, dental care and mental health. Mira can be used at the 20+ clinics signed up for Mira across the USA.
