Columbus, OH (PRUnderground) May 4th, 2015

Commons Health Inc, a Columbus, Ohio based startup, is excited to announce the launch of a new healthcare benefits programcalled Ardina™.  Ardina membership includes 24/7 access to online healthcare services, including tele-medicine and behavioral counseling; and discounted healthcare products and services, including prescription, dental, vision, lab, and chiropractor.  Ardina is not health insurance but is intended to be a complement to health insurance, just like AAA membership is a complement to car insurance.  And since many Americans are dealing with rising out-of-pocket healthcare costs due to high annual deductibles from your health insurance, Ardina membership can help millions of Americans.

In coordination with Startup Week, Ardina will be offered to startups who sign up at  .  Technology startups are competing for top talent, but most startups do not offer healthcare benefits. According to Forbes, only about 35% do because the Affordable Care Act requires only companies with 51 employees or more to provide healthcare insurances.  As startups scale and compete for top talent, offering an Ardina benefits plan will allow startups to help your  employees and stay competitive.

“As a start-up founder myself, I know how important every individual is to your company’s success.  Yet we also recognize the risk employees take to joining a startup.  So we are excited to be introducing Ardina to startups in Columbus first to help Columbus startups recruit and retain top talent”, said Ardina Founder & CEO, Shaun Young.  “We have received a great response from local businesses that want to provide healthcare benefits to their employees.  So we designed the program to fit with the lifestyle of the digital generation.”
