Amid Limited Providers and Premium Increases, Healthcare2U | No-Claims Healthcare™ Enters Memphis
Healthcare2U Brings Direct Primary Care to Memphis In Response to Employer Demands For Affordable Healthcare Solutions
JULY 19, 2018 – MEMPHIS, TN – In response to Tennessee’s sharp premium increases and the demand for affordable group healthcare solutions, Healthcare2U has added three clinics in Memphis. Over the last few years, providers have exited the Memphis marketplace, resulting in increased premiums and only one provider for multiple regions within Tennessee. Healthcare2U’s presence alleviates the healthcare burden for employers by providing an affordable healthcare alternative in the form of Direct Primary Care.
“Employers need affordable and accessible healthcare for their employees without the enormous financial burden,” says Andy Bonner, CEO of Healthcare2U. “This reason is why Healthcare2U is expanding quickly and purposefully across the nation. We want to provide Direct Primary Care to any employer struggling to provide their employees quality, useable benefits.”
Healthcare2U delivers membership-based healthcare on a national scale through their proprietary Private Physician Network™. Within these clinics, Healthcare2U provides same-day and next-day doctor appointments for acute issues at $10 a visit and around-the-clock telemedicine for $0 out-of-pocket cost. In addition to unlimited same-day/next-day acute visits, Healthcare2U’s mission is to also diagnose and treat disease states through their partner clinics, saving employers and their employees on specialist-care claims. Therefore, Healthcare2U physician partners agree to treat 13 of the most prevalent disease states for the same $10 visit fee. Physician partners also agree to practice generic-first protocols to reduce pharmaceutical costs.
“Healthcare2U’s practice protocols alleviate healthcare concerns for employers their employees,” says John Rodriguez, Chief Medical Officer of Healthcare2U. “We contain costs for employer groups by drawing insurance claims away from an employer’s insurance, towards our Direct Primary Care membership. This practice contains an employer’s cost while providing employees immediate accessibility to care, preventing unnecessary use of urgent care clinics and emergency rooms.
