Healthcare2U No-Claims Healthcare™ Battles Nashville’s Expensive Health Insurance Premiums

Nashville’s Demand for Affordable Healthcare Has Been Answered by Healthcare2U’s Direct Primary Care

 

June 06, 2018 – NASHVILLE, TN – Due to the need for affordable and creative healthcare solutions in the marketplace, Healthcare2U has expanded their Direct Primary Care coverage into the Nashville area with the recent addition of three new clinics. In 2018, hikes in Tennessee’s health insurance premiums far exceeded those across the U.S., affecting Nashville’s healthcare marketplace drastically. Nashville currently has only two insurers and the low availability of providers contributes to their increased insurance premiums.

“In Nashville, from 2017 to 2018, the ACA’s Silver and Gold plans increased about 37% and 67%, respectively. With these increases, traditional insurance plans have become more expensive while providing less coverage than ever. With these problems occurring nationally, it’s time to change the way healthcare is delivered,” says Andy Bonner, CEO of Healthcare2U. “An employer’s healthcare coverage should not be financially crippling. With premiums rising across Tennessee, Healthcare2U is dedicated to delivering affordable healthcare to employers across the state.”

Healthcare2U’s Direct Primary Care provides employers and their employees with a healthcare membership that prevents claims from hitting an employer’s health insurance. This membership provides employees access to unlimited same-day/next-day doctor appointments for acute issues for a $10 visit fee, and access to telehealth practitioners 24/7/365 for no additional out-of-pocket cost. In addition to acute primary care, Healthcare2U offers chronic disease management for 13 of the most prevalent disease states such as diabetes, hypertension, and asthma at the same $10 visit fee. Healthcare2U physicians also practice generic-first protocols to reduce pharmaceutical spend for employers and their employees.

“The Direct Primary Care model is tried and true, dating back before big-insurance took the reins of healthcare. Now, with health insurance costs rising, employers see the benefit of a cost-saving model that endorses preventative care,” says Dr. John Rodriguez, Chief Medical Officer of Healthcare2U. “Our model promotes a relationship between members and their physician, which nurtures educated health decisions and healthier lifestyle choices for our members. In short, that’s how healthcare should be delivered.”

Healthcare2U has more than 235 clinics in their nationwide Private Physician Network (PPN)™, including clinics in Chattanooga and Knoxville.
