Healthcare2U Partners with Bay Bridge Administrators to Provide Diverse Healthcare Options to Employer Groups, Nationwide
Partnership Provides Employer Groups of All Sizes Access to Affordable Healthcare Options that Deliver Robust Benefits to Employees While Reducing Healthcare Expenses
November 12, 2020 (Austin, TX) – Healthcare2U, the nation’s largest membership-based, hybrid direct primary care (DPC) organization, announces today their partnership with Bay Bridge Administrators (BBA) a full-service, nationally recognized, third-party administrator. This partnership will further extend Healthcare2U’s Direct Primary Care services to brokers looking for nationwide healthcare solutions that provide real value to their clients and help combat the 5% premium increase expected for employer groups in 2021.1
Healthcare2U and BBA’s partnership has created two nationwide products, a small group bundle that provides unlimited primary medical care for employees of microbusinesses and a Minimum Essential Coverage plan with an optional Rx plan, that can service small to large employer groups. Each plan features Healthcare2U’s Direct Primary Care membership, providing a patient navigation department that educates employees on their DPC membership and available overlying coverage options. DPC benefits include unlimited access to primary medical care services such as acute care in the form of in-office visits for $10 per visit, urgent care visits for $25 per visit, and 24/7/365 bilingual Virtual DPC for $0 out-of-pocket cost to members. This DPC membership also includes an annual physical with four basic labs and provides unlimited access to board-certified family medicine physicians for the treatment and management of 13 prevalent chronic disease states for $10 a visit.
Nationally, healthcare strategies for 2021 include placing more focus on primary care initiatives and aligning healthcare options with workforce strategy2. By providing unlimited virtual and in-person primary care to employees nationwide, employers can attract and maintain their workforce, whether it is a local office or a nation-wide operation. By keeping costs low and keeping healthcare affordable and convenient through direct primary care (DPC), employers encourage their employees to access benefits before health concerns become serious and result in missed work or shock claims down the road.
“Events in 2020 upended the nation’s healthcare system and economy. Employers are struggling to prepare for 2021 knowing that health insurance premiums will rise, and they will have to shift more health expenses to employees,3 increasing deductibles and healthcare avoidance,” says Andy Bonner, CEO and founder of Healthcare2U. “It’s time for employers to strategize the delivery of healthcare to their workforce. We are proud to partner with Bay Bridge Administrators to offer products that include nationwide unlimited primary care for employers of all sizes. For example, by combining our specialties we take an ACA compliance play and create something that brings healthcare equality to employees who need it most.”
