Boost Mobile, first seen in terms of subscriber perks, announced an unlimited plus cell phone plan for $60 per month, starting this summer with 24/7 access to telemedicine through K Health.
Specifically, Unlimited Plus subscribers have access to all the features of K Health’s typical $9 per month product. This includes the ability to text chat or make video calls with your doctor through the K Health app, using the app’s AI suggestions to identify symptoms and potential illnesses, and receive real-world treatments, including medications and other prescriptions.
The service is free, is available to all Boost Unlimited Plus subscribers, and is available at a discounted price of $7.99 per month to all other customers of Boost Mobile. You can access the service by signing up first on Boost Mobile’s site.
Since this is ultimately a phone plan, you will receive 35GB of 4G LTE data per month, after which you will be limited to 2G speeds. It also comes with “unlimited” conversations and texts and a 30GB mobile hotspot.
Providing online healthcare to customers hasn’t been at the top of what to do after Boost Mobile was absorbed by Dish Network (as part of the merger with T-Mobile and Sprint). However, getting medical care in the United States is often a costly proposition, which is before a post-treatment bill came out. And Boost has many low-income customers, and many of them are likely affected by an epidemic, so providing healthcare could be a real opportunity.
