There is now a gift card which can be used for medical procedures, giving individuals the opportunity to provide under/uninsured friends or family with medical services. Life Gift Cards (LGC) has produced and launched a program for health and wellness gift cards, the first of it’s kind. With it’s initial launch, LGC developed a mammogram gift card service that derives from it’s motivation to actually start the program.
“Presenting a loved one with a Life Gift Card for a mammogram is truly a life-saving gesture, especially since research proves that one in eight women is diagnosed with breast cancer,” board certified obstetrician, gynecologist, and LGC spokesperson Harry Collins said.
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and many fatalities can be prevented by early detection through mammography. This gift card is an awesome way for individuals to provide life saving services to loved ones who otherwise would not be able to provide it for themselves.
Healthcare providers that choose to become partnered provider will see an increase in patient activity, services, and guaranteed payment for practice.
How Does The Card Work?
First visit the site to buy a card. The recipient can activate the card by following the directions in the follow up email or by calling the LGC office. LGC will email the recipient and notify them of the nearest partnered provider where they can redeem the voucher. The recipient will then print out the card and make an appointment. For those without internet access, LGC will send the card through regular mail.
- Not redeemable for cash
- One time use
- No expiration
Can I use my card for other services?
At this time the card may only be redeemed for mammogram screening procedures. Other related fees or services are the responsibility of the patient and LGC holds no bearing for incurring procedures. They are however, working with partners to provide a wider range of gift card medical services.
