Convenient Access to Direct Primary Care Arrives in Salt Lake City Through Healthcare2U
Healthcare2U Answers Employer Demand for Accessible Primary Care for Employees
AUGUST 03, 2018 – SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – Healthcare2U’s new physician partnership in Salt Lake City, Utah is the first integrated Direct Primary Care clinic in the state. Utah is the fourth healthiest state nationwide but surprisingly lacks a sufficient number of primary care physicians, creating Medically Underserved Populations across Utah, and in particular, Salt Lake City. In response, employers are demanding access to Direct Primary Care, a healthcare membership which eliminates the inaccessibility of healthcare.
“The need for convenient access to primary care is not new,” says Dr. John Rodriguez, Chief Medical Officer of Healthcare2U. “Without access to a primary care physician many people must visit urgent care clinics or emergency rooms for primary care treatment. This routine generates expensive co-pays and insurance claims which dissuade patients from seeking appropriate care. When patients avoid care it often causes small issues to become serious health risks, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Healthcare2U’s Direct Primary Care membership simplifies care while eliminating those concerns.”
Healthcare2U delivers membership-based healthcare on a national scale through their proprietary Private Physician Network™ (PPN). Within these clinics, Healthcare2U provides same-day and 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-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.
“Convenient Direct Primary Care encourages patients to establish a trusting relationship with their doctors, therefore they are more likely to make educated healthcare decisions,” says Andy Bonner, CEO of Healthcare2U. “With simplified coverage, we create an opportunity for employers and patients to contain healthcare costs and utilize available Direct Primary Care resources to their advantage. To put it simply, that’s Healthcare2U’s mission: accessible and affordable healthcare.”
