Freedom Healthworks’s Jason Rutz talks employers and Freedom Healthworks.
The main hallmark of direct primary care (DPC) is working directly with the patients, avoiding the influence of insurance companies or third-party payers. However, there is still value in working with the employers.
If we succeed, instead of healthcare being this cold uncertain thing, it will be a highly transparent, free market, high value system that will have more impact in individuals than almost anything else.
Up to now, physicians who are moving into Direct Primary Care are practicing one of two ways: either launching an independent DPC practice or being hired on as an employed physician in a larger DPC-like clinic system.
Jason Rutz, Partnership and Growth Director of Freedom Healthworks, talks about companies looking to provide Direct Primary Care as a benefit to employees.
Jason Rutz spent many years selling health insurance in the form of custom Health Savings Account (HSA) plans before the Affordable Care Act forced massive changes in his company and left him out of work.
The direct model of care has made significant progress improving the health and wellness of individuals. However, not all direct care models are created equal nor do they have equal outcomes.
There are a lot of things to consider in a contract to facilitate transitioning to DPC a few years into your career.
Freedom Healthworks, Assured Partners and Health Rosetta organized a first of its kind employer forum in Indianapolis on May 9. The event exposed the benefits industry practices and tactics that are driving uncontrolled costs.
