August 25, 2021 (Austin, TX) Healthcare2U today announced their placement within the prestigious Inc. 5000 list for the 2021 year. After experiencing impressive growth of 66 percent member adoption in 2020, Healthcare2U ranks among the nation’s most successful private companies. As the nation’s fastest-growing hybrid Direct Primary Care organization, Healthcare2U is honored to join the Inc 5000 list, a symbol of entrepreneurial success and innovation.

“Direct Primary Care is not a new concept; rather, it may be healthcare’s oldest payment model. Back in the day, if you needed primary care from a physician, you paid directly for that care, with no copays or deductibles. This is the traditional model on which Healthcare2U was founded,” says Andy Bonner, CEO of Healthcare2U. “Since our inception, we’ve expanded the direct primary care model into an innovative membership that boasts unlimited benefits and hands-on patient navigation across all 50 states. This integrated membership delivers primary medical care while eliminating the hassle of insurance copays, claims and deductibles. By promoting clarity around the entry point to the healthcare system, Healthcare2U encourages members to become active participants in their health while delivering a proven 13+ percent first-year ROI for employer groups.”

Healthcare2U’s mission of providing nationwide affordable and convenient access to healthcare prioritizes the principle of member education and navigation. Their Direct Primary Care membership provides one central phone number for all non-emergency medical concerns. This patient navigation hotline guides members through unlimited DPC benefits, such as in-office acute visits for primary care and urgent care, annual physicals, early-stage chronic disease management, and 24/7 virtual DPC.

Over the last three years, Healthcare2U’s business has grown exponentially through multiple initiatives such as their nationwide Partnership Program. This program helps insurance agencies and third-party administrators expand benefit offerings by packaging existing products with Healthcare2U’s DPC suite of integrated primary care services. With these comprehensive initiatives, employer groups can customize their benefits packages to reduce healthcare expenses and expand employee benefits to motivate and retain their workforce. As a result, employers can attract, motivate, and retain their employees with affordable healthcare—reducing presenteeism, absenteeism, and the onset of serious illnesses, which drive future healthcare costs.

Healthcare2U is proud to accept this award and continue advocating for more equitable access to healthcare across the United States.

Exploring Healthcare Coverage Alternatives

Charlie Geiselhart, CRO of Healthcare2U, speaks with Daniel Litwin about how more companies and people are considering new, out-of-the-box solutions for affordable healthcare coverage

Podcast: Digital Disruption

Host: Daniel Litwin with special guest, Healthcare2U’s CRO, Charlie Geiselhart

 

Inaccessibility to low-cost health insurance is a fact of life for many people, as well as employers who want to offer part-time and 1099 workers solutions. Where can people turn to when they want affordable healthcare coverage? Charlie Geiselhart, CRO of Healthcare2U, spoke with Daniel Litwin about how more companies and people are considering new, out-of-the-box solutions.

When faced with selecting a healthcare coverage plan for employees, companies may have options, but they may not always be viable. Healthcare2U is a membership-based, direct primary care organization that provides employers, brokers, and patients with complete primary and urgent care nationwide.

“From an employer’s perspective, there are alternatives out there, but they’re costly,” Geiselhart said. “The high-deductible plan’s been out there for a long time. For an employee, it’s expensive to buy coverage. It’s expensive to use coverage. So, a lot of people are going without coverage.” Geiselhart said that, with all the choices available, it can be challenging to navigate the space. “The layperson doesn’t understand how insurance operates, so what we’ve decided to do is do a lot of handholding through our coverage and our program that allows them to make one phone call and access care,” Geiselhart said.

This access, Geiselhart said, is essential. When it comes to issues surrounding healthcare coverage, costs, etc., the average person wants help and needs advice and expertise regarding navigating a world they typically spend their time avoiding. Healthcare brokers recognize that they have traditional coverage offerings for many employers and employees. Still, those traditional offerings leave a large pool of people off the table. Those left outside looking in still want access to healthcare coverage.

“There are a lot of brokers operating in the traditional sense, but there are new and exciting alternatives that a lot of brokers haven’t explored,” Geiselhart said. Healthcare2U is one such possibility.

Healthcare2U is the nation’s fastest-growing hybrid DPC provider.

Expanding Benefits Sales With Non-Insurance Alternatives For The Remote Workforce

Article: Expanding Benefits Sales With Non-Insurance Alternatives For The Remote Workforce
Publication: Broker World Magazine
Author: Andy Bonner

The world’s reliance on remote work has been permanently altered thanks to the social distancing measures put in place during the pandemic. This reliance on technology has been implemented across industries and has affected employer groups large and small. As employers continue to adapt to this new normal, it’s unlikely things will ever return to the way they were pre-pandemic.

Instead, we expect even more client groups to join the remote work revolution in the years ahead. These tough economic times have been challenging for everyone but especially for small groups. And as companies pivoted to remote or hybrid workforces during the past year, many learned that having a remote workforce across multiple states provides a unique set of challenges for some employers.

In an effort to fight rising healthcare costs, large and small groups are shopping around for a new healthcare alternative that might equate to lower premiums and fewer claims to impact their profits. By providing timely solutions, brokers can reinforce their value and position themselves for growth in the years ahead.

Non-Insurance Health Care Alternatives: Building Broker Business and Helping Overlooked Populations

Article: Non-Insurance Health Care Alternatives: Building Broker Business and Helping Overlooked Populations
Publication: Benefits Pro Magazine
AuthorCharlie Geiselhart

Because of rising health care expenses, many employers elect to offer their employee populations high deductible health plans (HDHPs), which provide unattractive benefits because of the expenses involved. According to Kaiser Family Foundation, the average premium for family coverage has increased 22% over the last five years and 54% over the previous 10 years. These premiums have significantly outpaced the growth of workers’ wages and inflation during that same period.

With premiums escalating for every family member added to a health plan, even employees with health coverage through their employer often can’t afford to cover their dependents.

These uninsured dependents have previously been viewed as an unserviceable population, but benefits brokers can utilize non-insurance health care alternatives to provide usable benefits to a population that dearly needs them.

Linking Healthcare Benefits to Workforce Strategy for Small Businesses

Article: Linking Healthcare Benefits to Workforce Strategy for Small Businesses.
Publication: America’s Benefit Specialist Magazine
Author: Charlie Geiselhart

A comprehensive benefits package contributes to a healthy work culture by promoting employees’ physical and mental well-being. It also makes employees feel valued and brings greater peace of mind when they know their families can get the healthcare they need. Not only do excellent benefits help raise morale and create a positive work environment, but they also help small employers stand out among candidates in a highly competitive hiring landscape.

Even before a pandemic that caused economic upheaval on a massive scale, small businesses struggled to provide meaningful benefits and retain good talent. The Commonwealth Fund did a study in 2019 that revealed healthcare costs are the top concern for small businesses. When asked to choose their top two challenges, 37 percent cited the cost of providing health coverage to employees, followed by 33 percent who said attracting new customers was top of mind.

That was during a time when small business owners felt their businesses were doing well. Now that many are struggling to maintain after the pandemic, smaller clients lose hope because they don’t know about more affordable healthcare alternatives. Here we’ll examine why small businesses have limited healthcare options and how brokers can address these disparities.

Will Direct Primary Care Be 2020’s Health Care Darling?

Article: Will Direct Primary Care Be 2020’s Health Care Darling?
Publication: InsuranceNewsNet Magazine
AuthorAndy Bonner

The portrait of the American healthcare system isn’t pretty. The Commonwealth Fund reported in November that health insurance costs and deductible costs have been growing faster than the median income in all states over the past decade, meaning many working families are spending more of their income on healthcare.

Employers and employees are struggling to keep up with a system that was never created with their best interests in mind. Tired of being fleeced for care, people are desperate for affordable alternatives, and employers are looking to their benefits advisors for creative solutions to keep their workforce content.

Healthcare2U Announces the Nationwide Availability of New Direct Primary Care Program Geared for Individuals Affected by COVID-19 Crisis

MyDPCplus is a nationwide, monthly healthcare membership created to address the furloughed, part-time and laid-off employees of America, by providing access to unlimited primary care services including urgent care, 24/7 Virtual DPC and chronic disease management

April 6, 2020 (Austin, TX) – Today Healthcare2U, a membership-based, integrated direct primary care (DPC) organization, released an individual product to address the furloughed, part-time and laid-off employees of America in the form of a monthly healthcare membership. With indications that the US unemployment rate could rise to 13 percent in April¹, Healthcare2U is working to quell employee fears of going without access to healthcare by delivering their Direct Primary Care membership to individuals on a national scale.

The desire to assist those affected by COVID-19’s economic toll prompted Healthcare2U to create their first individual monthly membership, My Direct Primary Care Plus (MyDPCplus). MyDPCplus is built around a hybrid-DPC payment model and provides a comprehensive suite of unlimited primary care benefits. Like DPC, the plan is not insurance, but rather a healthcare membership available for a flat monthly fee. Benefits include unlimited services such as in-office physician visits for primary and urgent care, 24/7 Virtual DPC/telehealth consultations, and the treatment of 13 chronic disease states such as diabetes, asthma, and hypertension – within management ranges.

In this initiative, Healthcare2U has partnered with Zevo Benefits to provide the MyDPCplus monthly membership to individuals across the nation. Zevo Benefits offers a complete and agile enrollment platform that offers a simple and straightforward user experience, allowing individuals a painless enrollment into MyDPCplus via monthly ACH withdraw or credit card.

And while we can’t provide hospitalization or take away the stress of this moment in history, I can do my part to provide access to primary care for everyone who needs it.
– Andy Bonner

“Healthcare2U understands those Americans who have lost their jobs are dealing with the anxiety of possibly losing their health insurance. And while we can’t provide hospitalization or take away the stress of this moment in history, I can do my part to provide access to primary care for everyone who needs it,” said Andy Bonner, CEO of Healthcare2U. “Whether these individuals are gig workers, recently unemployed, or working for employers who can no longer provide benefits – they need access to affordable primary care. Healthcare2U is proud to partner with Zevo Benefits so we can offer this essential membership to individuals, nationwide.”

Direct, Virtual, Telehealth: A 360 View of Three Primary Healthcare Alternatives for 2020

Article: Direct, Virtual, Telehealth: A 360 View of Three Primary Healthcare Alternatives for 2020

Publication: America’s Benefit Specialist Magazine

Author: Andy Bonner

With accessibility and convenience waning in traditional healthcare, three primary care alternatives have entered the picture: direct primary care, telehealth, and virtual care. These three solutions were born out of a need to make the doctor-patient relationship more effective and efficient. In the process, they’ve created impressive returns for employers as well.

At face value, direct primary care, telehealth, and virtual care may seem interchangeable or redundant – but they aren’t. They’re more like three walls of a triangle: each one strengthening the other. They’re powering the future of healthcare while driving down costs in surprising ways.

Andy Bonner Nominated for the Austin Business Journal’s Best CEO Award

Leading Healthcare2U in an exponential year of growth, Mr. Bonner is recognized for having a strong track record of innovation and outstanding performance

October 1, 2019 (Austin, TX) – Healthcare2U, a membership-based, integrated direct primary care (DPC) organization, today announced CEO and Co-Founder Andy Bonner has been nominated for the Austin Business Journal’s 2019 Best CEO Award for his significant leadership accomplishments within the last year, and a strong record of innovation in advancing the next wave of healthcare. Winners will be announced at a private event held on October 3, 2019.

Mr. Bonner spent the past year traveling across the nation, educating employer groups and benefit brokers on how to redefine the delivery of primary care through his rapidly emerging DPC company, Healthcare2U. By rejecting the status quo of healthcare, Mr. Bonner is challenging the traditional ways it is purchased, consumed and delivered. With continued exponential growth, innovative proprietary technology and clear competitive differentiation, Healthcare2U is poised to shake an industry that is ripe for change.

“I’ve strived to make a difference in the healthcare industry by looking at the problem through different-colored glasses. Leading up to the creation of Healthcare2U, I spent my career solving critical business problems for some of the country’s most respected brands and Fortune 500 companies. Since I’m not from the insurance world, I was able to see where my personal misdiagnosis and healthcare point of entry issues originated and, ultimately, how Healthcare2U could solve these problems for others,” said Mr. Bonner. “My driving force is my passion to help others avoid a healthcare story similar to my own. By keeping Healthcare2U’s prices low and allowing convenient access to care, we are committed to providing the most affordable care to our members nationwide.”

For the 2019 Best CEO Awards, 90 CEO’s were nominated in the following categories based on the organization’s size: Small Company CEO (revenue under $10 million), Medium Company CEO (revenue $10 to $50 million), Large Company CEO (revenue over $50 million), Non-Profit CEO, and Market Leader (a new category dedicated to honoring local market leaders).
