Healthcare2U Answers Phoenix Employer Demands for Affordable and Bilingual Direct Primary Care
Healthcare2U’s No-Claims Healthcare™ Offers Cost–Containment Strategies for Primary Care and Chronic Diseases
November 20, 2018 – Tempe, AZ – In 2016 the Phoenix area was listed among the top five largest metro areas in the United States with the most air pollution, placing the 4.6 million residents at a higher risk of various respiratory diseases like chronic asthma and COPD. Because of the effect these environmental factors have on the population and the on-going claims associated, employers are looking for alternatives for absenteeism and expensive emergency room visits. In response to this demand, Healthcare2U is announcing their first clinic expansion into the Phoenix, Arizona area.
“Direct Primary Care through Healthcare2U treats a member’s acute illnesses, provides preventative care and, maybe most importantly, can detect and manage 13 prevalent chronic diseases including asthma and COPD,” says Dr. John Rodriguez, Chief Medical Officer of Healthcare2U. “By providing affordable and easily-accessible care, our Direct Primary Care membership contains employer and member costs on unnecessary emergency room and urgent care visits. By encouraging a relationship between members and our physicians, Healthcare2U shifts expenses from an employer’s health insurance to our membership, resulting in lower premiums and better quality of care.”
Through their integrated Direct Primary Care network, Healthcare2U delivers their membership-based healthcare to employers in the Phoenix area and across the nation. Within these clinics, Healthcare2U provides same or next-day doctor appointments for acute issues at $10 a visit and around-the-clock bilingual telehealth for $0 out-of-pocket cost. In addition to unlimited same-day/next-day acute visits, Healthcare2U physician partners agree to treat 13 of the most prevalent chronic disease states for the same $10 visit fee. Healthcare2U physician partners also agree to practice generic-first protocols to reduce pharmaceutical costs for employers and their employees.
“Healthcare2U’s Direct Primary Care membership provides cost-containment strategies for employers, reducing the financial burden of healthcare while supporting healthier and more productive employees,” says Andy Bonner, CEO of Healthcare2U. “We are expanding quickly across the nation due to a need for affordable healthcare that emphasizes the relationship between physician and patient. We’re dedicated to our member’s healthcare experience and are excited to introduce Healthcare2U’s membership and solutions to employers in the greater Phoenix area.”
