MIHI-launched HCSO will be positioned to capitalize on increasingly popular health care sharing plans for groups that share medical costs with other like-minded families

DULUTH, Georgia, January 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Medical Innovation Holdings, Inc. ("MIHI" or the "Company")

(OTC: MIHI) today announces the launch of a Health Care Sharing Organization (HCSO) to complement Telemedicos USA (http://www.telemedicosusa.com), its Spanish-speaking health care platform.

While they aren't considered health insurance, HCSOs provide meaningful financial protection for families who want to share their healthcare expenses with other like-minded families with the goal of keeping everyone's out-of-pocket costs low. The main healthcare sharing ministries available at the moment include Liberty Healthshare, Christian Care Ministry's Medi-Share, Samaritan Ministries, and Altrua Healthshare.

Hispanic individuals and families who choose health care sharing programs pay a monthly 'sharing amount' similar to a health insurance premium. Depending on the program they choose, they can enjoy many of the same rewards of traditional health insurance - perks like discounts on healthcare, out-of-pocket limits, and predictable monthly payments. A primary benefit, however, is the ability to share costs with like-minded members to reduce the overall monthly cost of the coverage. Combining access to specialists using TelemedicosUSA Virtual 24/7 Platform will make the Company offering unique to all others in the market. The goal is to have both Spanish and English messaging to capture as many members and encounters as possible.  

Another major benefit is avoiding the tax penalty for not having ACA-approved health insurance. This benefit has made it possible for many families who can't afford ACA plans to get medical coverage that is within reach.

Insurance rates have been steadily rising since 1999. According to the Henry J. Kaiser Foundation, average annual premiums for a family hit $18,764 this year, which is a 3% bump from 2016. Compare that to 1999, when average premiums for families were just $5,791 (https://www.fastcompany.com/40470468/this-scary-chart-shows-skyrocketing-insurance-premiums-over-the-last-18-years).

Arturo "Jake" Sanchez, MIHI CEO, stated, "The alternative to skyrocketing insurance coverage costs is to develop our own product sets we can take to market and offer an alternative to price and approach. The HCSO allows us to do that and at the same time serve a large and expanding marketplace. We believe we would be the first to offer such a unique and needed service in the Hispanic community. It fits nicely with Telemedicos as now we can blend the two offerings into a single and simple payment offering coverage via brick and mortar and virtual visits."

More announcements are expected as the company begins launch of new health care plans. The company intends to begin its marketing campaign in the next few months to launch the new HCSO and begin acquiring members.
