The platform provides a convenient way to pay for quality professional dental care through an app.
quip announced the launch of quipcare, a new platform that provides a transparent, affordable and convenient way to access and pay for quality professional dental care through a simple app.
With quipcare, quip continues to reinvent the industry by offering a first-of-its-kind, end-to-end consumer-focused oral health solution that includes a growing range of personal care products and now professional dental services.
“People aren’t getting the care they need. One-quarter of Americans don't have dental insurance and, even of those with insurance, one-third haven't visited their dentist in over a year. The current dental care and insurance systems can be confusing, opaque and expensive, and the process of booking, getting and paying for care is inconvenient,” says Simon Enever, co-founder and CEO of quip. “quipcare is solving many of these pain points that deter people from getting the professional care they need. We’ve spent years making at-home oral care more simple, affordable and enjoyable for millions of people. Now, we are excited to apply that same ethos to reshape professional dental care with a simple, modern app.”
Whether someone is insured and hits his or her annual maximum, is looking for treatments not covered under insurance, or doesn't want a monthly plan, with the free quipcare app, members can browse, book and pay as they go for dental care services-from basic check-ups to fillings and crowns-within quip’s curated network of dental professionals at set rates reportedly 30 to 40 percent less than average rates in their area. As an alternative to traditional dental benefits, members can also upgrade to quipcare+ for $25 per month, which includes two preventative check-ups and annual X-rays for $200 less than on pay-as-you-go. quipcare also helps members focus on proactive care and prevention by helping them manage their treatment records and offering rewards for timely check-ups.
“Great oral health is achieved by combining a healthy at-home routine with consistent professional care. quip is now the first consumer oral care company to offer both personal and professional care, making it easier and more enjoyable for people to take proper care of their mouths,” says Dr. Jeffrey Rappaport, director of care at quip.
“Unlike healthcare insurance, dental benefit profits aren’t as limited, meaning profit margins of traditional plans can be big, patient rates high and provider reimbursements low," he continues. "With quipcare, we help patients pay providers more directly, so they can pay less and the provider can keep more, leading to better health outcomes and happier patients and professionals.”
quipcare is rolling out in New York City this summer and plans to expand across the United States in 2020 with an expanded professional network of high-quality individual practices and small and large dental groups.
