Introducing Remedy — An Exciting New Healthcare Benefit for ABoR Members

Urgent care costs are expensive, and that’s especially true if you’re a small business owner or an independent contractor. What’s more, it can be difficult to get to an urgent care facility if you’re out in the field or stranded at home with your children.

Well, ABoR has a remedy for that. Starting Monday, Nov. 19, ABoR will launch our first-ever healthcare benefit for members that will give you access to urgent care on your schedule, at your location and at a much-lower cost than many urgent care facilities.

From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day, Remedy provides same-day house calls throughout the Austin area and secure, on-demand video visits. Both services can work with or without insurance, and prescriptions are sent directly to your pharmacy. The best thing is that there’s a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so if they can’t treat you, you don’t pay.

On top of these services, ABoR members will receive the following exclusive cost savings and benefits:

  • Choice of a one-time FREE house call (with or without insurance) or a $120
    account credit
  • 30% discounted rate of $119 on self-pay house calls
  • 20% discount on all other Remedy services
  • Exclusive access to the ABoR Health portal, powered by Remedy
  • Unlimited toll-free support (8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day) via MyRemedy.com or 844-REMEDY-5

Remedy is already a go-to service among many Central Texas REALTORS and brokers, so we’re thrilled to offer it at an even greater discount to our members. To learn more about Remedy, go to ABoR.com/Remedy.
