Curative’s Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Curative, Fred Turner, was featured in STAT+, an award-winning news platform known for its in-depth biotech, pharma, policy, and life science coverage. The article highlights the company’s rise to prominence during the COVID-19 pandemic and its recent pivot to health insurance.
“Curative officially received its insurance license in Texas this past summer and has put up $27 million of its own cash to cover the first three years of operations, according to documents filed with Texas insurance regulators. “Roughly 10 employers in the state will be using Curative as their health insurer next year,” Turner said.”
Curative’s new employer-sponsored health plan was initially launched in Austin, Texas, and plans to expand nationwide. Its differentiator? Curative’s health insurance plan offers $0 copays and $0 deductibles for all in-network services upon completion of a Baseline Visit within 120 days of enrollment.
“The main draw for workers at companies that choose Curative: They don’t owe a dime for any care they get at in-network doctors and hospitals, as long as they complete an hour-long health assessment every year. “There is this view in the U.S. that says, ‘Oh, well, if you don’t charge people to go to the doctor, they’ll just spend all of their time in the doctor’s office,’” Turner said. ‘People have better things to do.’”
"And so what we’re trying to do is: Invest in people in the first year, expand access to care, make it easy to go and get preventive care, and make a plan that is actually easy to understand."
The health plan is available to employers with 51+ employees and aims to improve the health outcomes of plan members through costs of transparency and ease of use.
