Why would Boost Mobile be in Telehealth?
"Boost Mobile truly prioritizes its customers and is creating solutions to meet their needs,"
A significant portion of Boost Mobile’s customers are low-income and may struggle to get access to affordable healthcare. The company’s CEO sees this partnership as a way to provide healthcare to people who need it the most.
"Boost Mobile customers are disproportionately affected by rising health care costs. Boost Mobile is bridging the gap by providing affordable wireless access, and now we want to expand those efforts to address the health care divide," Stephen Stokols, CEO of Boost Mobile, said in a statement.
I don't know about you but that seems like one of the most powerful moves yet around addressing health equities. Telehealth as part of your mobile plan that you are already paying for.
