Providing healthcare benefits to employees is known to improve employee retention and job satisfaction. However, as health insurance premiums have soared, small businesses often struggle to afford insurance plans for their employees.
A strong relationship with a primary care physician helps keep patients healthy and out of the emergency room and hospital. Employers benefit from having happy and healthy employees who are more productive and miss less work. How can small business owners help their employees access great primary care that they can afford?
A direct primary care membership is an excellent benefit for small business owners to provide to their employees. An entire year’s membership is often less than 2 months of an individual health insurance premium, but it offers unparalleled access to primary care services. This provides employees the opportunity to establish a strong relationship with a primary care physician who can manage the majority of their healthcare needs: from their annual physical to sick visits for minor illnesses and injuries, as well as chronic disease management. Membership can be offered alone or with an affordable catastrophic coverage insurance plan or a health share membership for a wraparound solution to cover emergencies that primary care can’t manage.
Many of our primary care physician members offer plans to employers in their practices. Visit our Doctors page to learn more about each practice and find one that would be a good fit for your employees. For employers with employees in multiple locations, memberships can be arranged at different practices to meet your employees’ needs. Contact us today to learn more!
