Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a growing model for healthcare, and is a key free market solution to America’s rising healthcare costs. Not only will Direct Primary Care be a solution for individuals and families looking to access affordable healthcare outside of our dysfunctional insurance system, but local insurance agencies are now learning how to incorporate Direct Primary Care into the benefit portfolios for local small and large businesses too!
Erickson Financial Services, a local health insurance agency in Colorado Springs, is currently helping to incorporate PeakMed’s services into the benefit portfolios for local small and large businesses. As PeakMed continues to grow, there will be opportunities for businesses to drastically lower the cost of benefits by utilizing the services of Direct Primary Care. Benefit Administrators and CFOs in Colorado should consider contacting Erickson Financial Services of Colorado Springs to learn more about Direct Primary Care and how to strategically incorporate these services into benefit portfolios to lower healthcare costs while providing better care to employees.
Direct Payment for healthcare is an example of how the free market works to save consumers money, and how to fix America’s healthcare cost problem, without the help of useless legislation at the Federal Level. It’s happening now, and the movement is taking hold. This not only applies to primary care, but also to surgical procedures, and the savings are even greater when employers adopt the model of direct pay into corporate benefit plans. The key for group benefit administrators is to find and work with benefit advisers who understand how to design benefit plans that utilize both Direct Payment and Health Insurance to maximize quality and savings on the cost of employee benefits!
Don’t ignore this movement. Americans can come together in agreement that Direct Payment is a solution. It brings simplicity, yet outside-of-the-box thinking, back to our great nation, and proves that freedom and liberty always prevails. In my lifetime, I’ve watched as government has tried hard to convince our youth that they need big brother to take care of them. But watch as the direct payment movement takes hold, and a very different picture of American health care unfolds.
