PBF Now Offers Virtual Healthcare Services

Posted May 11, 2022, under Benefits, Hot Topics

The Professional Beauty Federation (PBF) is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with GVC Health Tech and it’s disruptive App product, Give Virtual Care, to offer for the first time to beauty and barbering professionals a turn-key affordable virtual healthcare membership solution that includes unlimited, on-demand, virtual urgent and general care medical appointments through industry leader Teladoc.

Give Virtual Care is a bundled Virtual Healthcare Membership, not insurance. The membership provides immediate or scheduled telehealth visits for general med diagnosis, discounts on prescriptions, expert second medical opinions, tele-mental health and immediate Crisis Care as a completely bundled service for one low monthly cost. The affordable non-insurance solution offers 24/7 care for non-emergency conditions like cold and flu, sinus infections, sore throat, allergies, dermatology, sexual health, pediatrics and more. The Give Virtual Care App is available for all mobile devices and iPads. The Cares Act allows for HSA funds to be used for telehealth.

This is being presented as a low cost $25 a month package (discounted from $30 as a Beauty Federation benefit) and includes spouses/partners and full family members up to 15 individuals. Even people with full insurance will be attracted to the offering as it presents an alternative to going to urgent care and having to be stuck with a co-pay. The convenience and mobile application should be particularly resonant with the beauty and barbering community, as smartphones are ubiquitous in our industry. Even salon owners may choose to offer this to their employees, booth/suite renters and commission professionals as a retention benefit as it is so affordable.
