Who is the typical customer?
Whether they have health insurance or not, many of our customers cannot afford the basic services of physicians or the medications they prescribe. This population will typically forgo treatment for basic health issues as a result of this economic reality. These people rarely fear major medical events as they have few assets to protect but are constantly afraid of missing a day of work, rent or a car payment due to a minor illness. This is amplified further in our customers who have children.
