Healthcare2U Brings Competition to the Louisiana Healthcare Marketplace
Low Cost, High Quality Direct Primary Care Concierge Model Continues to Win Over Physicians in Time of Healthcare Uncertainty
November 1, 2017 – AUSTIN, Texas – Healthcare2U continues to expand in Louisiana providing more healthcare options while growing its Private Physician Network (PPN) with the addition of a new primary care partnership in New Orleans. With the addition of Dr. Joseph Mather, Healthcare2U provides more competition and options into the health insurance marketplace. A recent study conducted by the American Medical Association sheds light on a lack of healthcare insurance competition in ten states, including Louisiana.
Dr. Mather is the latest physician to partner with Healthcare2U’s rapidly growing PPN of more than 200 locations nationwide. Clinics like Dr. Mather’s provide medical care, wellness and chronic disease management for patients, all within Heathcare2U’s low cost, high quality model. Others include Dr. Christopher Lee in Baton Rouge and the Fairfield Family Clinic in Shreveport.
“Two of the largest health insurers in the country now control more than 80 percent of the health insurance market in Louisiana, said Andy Bonner, president and CEO of Healthcare2U. “The result has been a steady increase in employee share of annual premium costs. Healthcare2U’s ten dollar per visit fee for an unlimited number of visits for comprehensive and high quality care is sure to be a welcome disruption to this existing monopoly,” Bonner said.
Healthcare2U, with more than 200 clinics across the United States, operates one of the nation’s fastest-growing direct primary care networks. The company works with health care brokers and businesses to provide a comprehensive suite of custom group health plans to help keep costs low while promoting healthy workforces.
“Physicians like Dr. Mather become doctors to help people, not manage paperwork,” said Dr. John Rodriguez, Chief Medical Officer of Healthcare2U. “Unfortunately, physicians face lost time and money dealing with complicated insurance processes that include thousands of insurance codes. Healthcare2U’s no claim process allows doctors to focus on their patients, while our concierge service connects them with patients who need and want care right away. It’s a big win-win.”
Through Healthcare2U’s simple membership-based model, no insurance claims are filed for doctor visits against the company’s health plan. Employee members can access doctor appointments for a $10 visit fee along with telemedicine practitioners 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Healthcare2U members with chronic conditions like diabetes, hypertension and asthma can also take advantage of Healthcare2U’s low cost, concierge-style care.
Healthcare2U, headquartered in Austin, Texas, is a leader in delivering direct primary care, wellness and chronic disease management to employers of all sizes. Through a network of more than 200 partner clinics across the nation, Healthcare2U, is breaking down barriers to convenient access to quality medical care with a focus on promoting healthy living while preventing disease. Healthcare2U is redefining how healthcare is delivered to improve the overall consumer medical experience while holding the line on employer costs.
