Healthcare2U Announces Nationwide Availability of DPCplus, Their New Direct Primary Care Suite

September 17, 2019 (Austin, TX) – Healthcare2U, a membership-based, integrated direct primary care (DPC) organization, today announced the nationwide availability of DPCplus, a new comprehensive suite of integrated primary care services for employers of all sizes and structures needing to keep expenses low and achieve better health outcomes for employees. DPCplus is not insurance, but rather a monthly healthcare membership consisting of a low flat fee and fixed visit fees for unlimited in-office physician visits and treatments for primary care, urgent care, chronic management, telehealth, and various discounts from generic prescriptions to lab work to fitness/gym memberships.

Healthcare2U is the first-to-market direct primary care organization delivering consistent care and pricing, with affordable access to high-quality primary care at a price point of 40% below the average cost of traditional DPC practices operating in the market today.
“Healthcare2U has aggregated multiple partners to bring integrated healthcare to its members through fixed costs and nationwide availability. With the addition of DPCplus, we’re removing the geographical confines of traditional DPC to help benefit brokers better service employer groups by expanding their reach. Our integrated solution opens the door for everyone to have access to affordable, high-quality primary and urgent care no matter where they reside in the country,” said Healthcare2U CEO and Co-founder, Andy Bonner. “DPCplus is a game-changer for the market that delivers integrated healthcare previously only available on the local or regional level—at a price they can afford.”

DPCplus removes healthcare accessibility barriers with nationwide reach delivering consistent, affordable, high-quality primary care to keep employer expenses low while diminishing the financial impact of high deductibles and expensive out-of-pocket costs

DPCplus is a single solution built around a proprietary patient navigation platform coupled with a nationwide, Private Physician Network (PPN)™ that utilizes an integrated benefit model to 1) overcome affordability and restriction shortcomings of modern-day healthcare, and 2) to address long-standing accessibility barriers to managing preventative care, chronic conditions, and all health problems in a timely fashion before emergencies arise. DPCplus provides:

Affordability: No-claims membership coupled with aligned patient/physician incentives drive affordability—enabling employers to offer lower care costs, empower employee health and deliver better patient experiences.

Accessibility: Unlimited accessibility to network physicians during business hours, 24/7 access to telehealth specialists, and primary, chronic and urgent treatment from anywhere—reducing patient avoidance and giving peace of mind.

Transparency: Upfront fixed pricing and detailed supporting information gives the transparency to empower patients to make smart, budgeted healthcare decisions—preventing post-visit surprise charges or opaque payment responsibilities.

Mobility: Nationwide footprint drives primary care mobility to better service members regardless of location while transferring medical records between network physicians for every visit—eliminating care fragmentation and chances for misdiagnosis.

PressReleaseGraphic.V.20190903

DPCplus provides unlimited, in-office appointments for acute care at $10 per visit and $25 for urgent care, and around-the-clock telehealth for no out-of-pocket cost. For the same $10 visit fee, members receive unlimited access to chronic disease management for 13 of the most prevalent diseases. Physicians within Healthcare2U partner clinics also practice generic-first protocols to reduce pharmaceutical costs for employers and employees.

“With costs for employee health benefits expected to rise in 2020, more individuals are having to purchase High Deductible Health Plans consisting of narrow networks that limit acute care accessibility and inflate out-of-pocket costs. With Healthcare2U’s new integrated DPC solution, we can now offer an all-inclusive suite of primary care services with an extensive network of providers and urgent care facilities at a significantly lower price point,” said Frank Crivello, president, and CEO of SBMA, a third-party administrator based in San Diego. “Healthcare2U is leveling-up the playing field, and we anticipate a strong response from our clients knowing we can further support them whether they are remote, traveling or dispersed across the country.”

Healthcare2U Enters Iowa As Employers Seek Alternative Solutions to Steep Health Premium Increases

No-Claims Healthcare™ Offers Employers Financial Relief from Rising Insurance Costs

October 25, 2018 – Des Moines, IA – As Iowa’s insurance agents look for creative alternatives to steep premium increases, Healthcare2U announces the arrival of their first Direct Primary Care clinic in West Des Moines. Over the last year, Iowa has experienced an increase in employer health-benefit premiums by 8.4 percent. Considering these employers provide health insurance to more than half of all Iowans, there is a strong demand for affordable solutions that will provide affordable care while containing employer healthcare expenses.

“Direct Primary Care is a membership that, by nature, contains healthcare costs by deferring primary care from an employer’s insurance plan,” says Andy Bonner, CEO of Healthcare2U. “The Healthcare2U Direct Primary care difference is that our membership is available to employees for primary care, acute illnesses, and chronic disease management – dramatically decreasing the number of insurance claims on an employer’s health plan.”

Healthcare2U delivers its membership-based Direct Primary Care on a national scale through its proprietary Private Physician Network™ (PPN). Within these clinics, Healthcare2U provides same or 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 or 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.

“Healthcare2U’s Direct Primary Care membership is effective in lowering healthcare costs because it increases physician-patient communication to effectively manage chronic diseases, decreasing employee’s utilization of their insurance plans,” says Dr. John Rodriguez, Chief Medical Officer of Healthcare2U. “With Healthcare2U’s membership, patients have affordable and convenient access to, not only the entry point of healthcare, but also the treatment and management of 13 chronic disease states – including hypertension, blood pressure, and congestive heart failure (CHF).”

While Healthcare2U’s West Des Moines clinic is the first in the state of Iowa, Healthcare2U has a nationwide Private Physician Network™ that spans 26 states with more than 240 clinics.

Healthcare2U Answers Massachusetts’ Expensive Employer-Sponsored Insurance Premiums with Affordable No-Claims Healthcare™

Massachusetts’ Employers Demand Alternative Solutions to Contain Healthcare Costs

AUGUST 15, 2018 – BOSTON, MA – Due to broker and employer demand for lower healthcare costs, Healthcare2U has expanded its nationwide Direct Primary Care services into Boston with the addition of a new clinic. In 2017, Massachusetts had the fourth-highest employer-sponsored insurance premiums in the country, prompting employers to seek affordable healthcare alternatives. Through Healthcare2U’s membership-based Direct Primary Care, Massachusetts employers can shield claims from their insurance plans, which results in lower premiums.

“We’ve created a nationwide, integrated Direct Primary Care solution that unloads claims from an employer’s insurance plan while delivering the benefits of Direct Primary Care to the employee,” says Andy Bonner, CEO of Healthcare2U. “When integrated into traditional self-insured programs, Healthcare2U has shown that stop-loss carriers are routinely giving significant reductions in aggregate factors and stop-loss premiums.”

Healthcare2U delivers membership-based healthcare on a national scale through its 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.

“Many people don’t realize the importance and impact of quality primary care,” says Dr. John Rodriguez, CMO of Healthcare2U. “When given the opportunity, Primary Care Physicians can treat health issues that patients typically visit an expensive specialist or emergency room. Healthcare2U allows physicians to practice medicine by removing the red tape and claims-administration from our partner clinics.”

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 its 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.”

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.

Healthcare2U No-Claims Healthcare™ Battles Nashville’s Expensive Health Insurance Premiums

Nashville’s Demand for Affordable Healthcare Has Been Answered by Healthcare2U’s Direct Primary Care

June 06, 2018 – NASHVILLE, TN – Due to the need for affordable and creative healthcare solutions in the marketplace, Healthcare2U has expanded its Direct Primary Care coverage into the Nashville area with the recent addition of three new clinics. In 2018, hikes in Tennessee’s health insurance premiums far exceeded those across the U.S., affecting Nashville’s healthcare marketplace drastically. Nashville currently has only two insurers and the low availability of providers contributes to their increased insurance premiums.

“In Nashville, from 2017 to 2018, the ACA’s Silver and Gold plans increased by about 37% and 67%, respectively. With these increases, traditional insurance plans have become more expensive while providing less coverage than ever. With these problems occurring nationally, it’s time to change the way healthcare is delivered,” says Andy Bonner, CEO of Healthcare2U. “An employer’s healthcare coverage should not be financially crippling. With premiums rising across Tennessee, Healthcare2U is dedicated to delivering affordable healthcare to employers across the state.”

Healthcare2U’s Direct Primary Care provides employers and their employees with a healthcare membership that prevents claims from hitting an employer’s health insurance. This membership provides employees access to unlimited same-day/next-day doctor appointments for acute issues for a $10 visit fee, and access to telehealth practitioners 24/7/365 for no additional out-of-pocket cost. In addition to acute primary care, Healthcare2U offers chronic disease management for 13 of the most prevalent disease states such as diabetes, hypertension, and asthma at the same $10 visit fee. Healthcare2U physicians also practice generic-first protocols to reduce pharmaceutical spend for employers and their employees.

“The Direct Primary Care model is tried and true, dating back before big-insurance took the reins of healthcare. Now, with health insurance costs rising, employers see the benefit of a cost-saving model that endorses preventative care,” says Dr. John Rodriguez, Chief Medical Officer of Healthcare2U. “Our model promotes a relationship between members and their physician, which nurtures educated health decisions and healthier lifestyle choices for our members. In short, that’s how healthcare should be delivered.”

Healthcare2U has more than 235 clinics in its nationwide Private Physician Network (PPN)™, including clinics in Chattanooga and Knoxville.
