Employers seeking out the best health packages for their employees must consider many factors up front. What is most important when choosing affordable health insurance is that you understand your employees’ needs and find a plan that centers individual health through comprehensive care. The best health insurance plan will take care of its members in the event that they need to visit the doctor for checkups, receive treatments, see a specialist, purchase prescription medications, or make an unexpected visit to the emergency room.
The Curative Health Plan is an affordable and comprehensive package that offers a wide range of health services with $0 copay and $0 deductible requirements for members who complete their Baseline Visit within the first 120 days of coverage*, giving everyone peace of mind that their health care needs won’t ever break the bank. Connecting with a health insurance provider to learn about high-quality care and custom premium prices is one of the best ways to start choosing affordable health insurance for the workplace.
Benefits of Cost-Transparent Health Insurance
There are a number of ways to stay proactive when finding a plan that is in alignment with workplace goals and individual care needs. It is more important than ever to select an insurance package that benefits employees, as more than 11% of Americans are uninsured due to a lack of access to comprehensive care through their employer. Not only can reliable health care be there for you and your employees when medical care needs are imminent, but it can also keep everyone protected even when they are in the best of health.
There are many compelling reasons to seek out the most holistic and high-quality health plan for employers in Austin, including:
1. Rising Costs of Medicine
Prescription drugs and name-brand medicines are seeing wildly inflating costs, especially in the United States, causing patients in dire need of these drugs to suffer. Prices continue to soar incrementally, making health insurance more important than ever for those who need access to affordable medication. According to one HHS report, many prescription medications are rising in price at a higher rate than the average rate of inflation.
One leading reason for seeking out a cohesive health plan for employees is to gain access to prescriptions without copays for preferred drugs, with possible same-day delivery services available as well. The Curative pharmacy makes it possible for individuals to receive their medications with speed, accuracy, and, above all, affordability**.
2. Crucial Access to Preventive Care
It’s no secret that the best form of treatment is prevention, and being able to schedule regular screenings and tests with your doctor is an important part of staying healthy throughout all chapters of life. The right kind of health insurance plan will cover screenings and checkups with no additional costs as long as members remain within their network of care.
3. Coverage During Emergencies
While you can never fully prepare for an emergency, there are preventive measures that can protect employees and their loved ones in the event of an urgent medical situation. It’s best to have a degree of protection on your side so you aren’t left on your own when an urgent situation does occur. Medical emergencies can become incredibly expensive, often leaving families with a stressful amount of debt on top of growing health needs.
A common question that employers and individual members alike will ask before choosing affordable health insurance is, “Does insurance cover urgent care?” While every insurance plan provides a different level of service, health insurance providers are required by the ACA to cover emergency services, and many of them also cover urgent care center visits.
Part of what makes the Curative Health Plan a proponent of next-generation care is the zero copay, zero deductible access to virtual urgent care services. When members experience situations that are urgent but not a medical emergency, they can sign up for an urgent care appointment through NormanMD with a guaranteed doctor’s visit in 10 minutes or less.
Find the Perfect Health Care Plan for Your Austin Employees
When choosing a health care plan for your entire company, it’s important to have an understanding of the needs of your employees and what kinds of services should be offered. The rapid changes made to the U.S. health care system during the COVID-19 crisis only amplified those needs, making it evident that comprehensive, holistic health care is the way of the future. It’s important to find an insurance provider that will customize a health care plan to suit the specific needs of every individual.
At Curative, we believe that modern health care plans should be modeled after today’s post-pandemic world, which is reflected in our member-centered services. Employers are encouraged to look for health coverage that centers each member through personalized services.
