This week, VURVhealth and the Chinese Restaurant Foundation announced an exclusive partnership, to offer affordable medical care to member restaurant owners and their employees. The collaboration between this leading discount medical network and exclusive non-profit dedicated to promoting the development of the Chinese restaurant industry is a significant breakthrough in the challenges restaurant owners face not being able to provide health benefits. Now their employees will have access to health care options both with affordable monthly member fees and with manageable medical visit and treatment costs.
“We’re thrilled to team up with the Chinese Restaurant Foundation and integrate our health care offerings into the valuable support programs that they deliver to their more than 47,000 member restaurants covering more than 450,000 employees nationwide,” said Drew Golden, Founder, and Chief Executive Officer of VURVhealth. “Health care is a prominent problem for many people in the U.S. We’re very well aware how difficult it is for small businesses, especially family-run restaurants who cannot afford to cover the costs of fully funded health care plans for their employees. That’s where VURVhealth can step in. We are not health insurance; we’re a discount health network. When members use our network providers, they immediately receive low, pre-negotiated prices on thousands of health and wellness treatments such as medical services, dental, vision, chiropractic care, acupuncture, and prescription discounts. This way they can manage and control their health care costs based on their actual needs, pay as they go and without worrying about deductibles to meet.”
Betty Xie, Executive Director of Chinese Restaurant Foundation, added, “This is an incredible, well-suited program, and almost a custom made one for our members. I deeply appreciate VURVhealth’s dedication of time and effort to help make this exclusive partnership possible. Thanks to Drew and his team, they have spent many months working with our Foundation team to visit our members at their restaurants and to understand the unique culture and the health care needs of our restaurant workforce and the Chinese Community.”
VURVhealth is working with the Chinese Restaurant Foundation to ensure that member restaurants and their employees gain immediate access to instant savings on out-of-pocket medical costs at thousands of physician offices and medical care facilities nationwide.
