Healthcare2U Enters Iowa As Employers Seek Alternative Solutions to Steep Health Premium Increases

No-Claims Healthcare™ Offers Employers Financial Relief from Rising Insurance Costs

October 25, 2018 – Des Moines, IA – As Iowa’s insurance agents look for creative alternatives to steep premium increases, Healthcare2U announces the arrival of their first Direct Primary Care clinic in West Des Moines. Over the last year, Iowa has experienced an increase in employer health-benefit premiums by 8.4 percent. Considering these employers provide health insurance to more than half of all Iowans, there is a strong demand for affordable solutions that will provide affordable care while containing employer healthcare expenses.

“Direct Primary Care is a membership that, by nature, contains healthcare costs by deferring primary care from an employer’s insurance plan,” says Andy Bonner, CEO of Healthcare2U. “The Healthcare2U Direct Primary care difference is that our membership is available to employees for primary care, acute illnesses, and chronic disease management – dramatically decreasing the number of insurance claims on an employer’s health plan.”

Healthcare2U delivers its membership-based Direct Primary Care on a national scale through its proprietary Private Physician Network™ (PPN). Within these clinics, Healthcare2U provides same or next-day doctor appointments for acute issues at $10 a visit and around-the-clock telehealth for $0 out-of-pocket cost. In addition to unlimited same or 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 is effective in lowering healthcare costs because it increases physician-patient communication to effectively manage chronic diseases, decreasing employee’s utilization of their insurance plans,” says Dr. John Rodriguez, Chief Medical Officer of Healthcare2U. “With Healthcare2U’s membership, patients have affordable and convenient access to, not only the entry point of healthcare, but also the treatment and management of 13 chronic disease states – including hypertension, blood pressure, and congestive heart failure (CHF).”

While Healthcare2U’s West Des Moines clinic is the first in the state of Iowa, Healthcare2U has a nationwide Private Physician Network™ that spans 26 states with more than 240 clinics.
