Fee-for-Service Primary Care Only Pays $60 - $140
However, Primary Care Has Been Shown to Decrease Hospitalizations by 20%... Saving $50,000 Per Hospitalization.
Accordingly, Fee-for-Service Primary Care is a Severe Shortcoming for Employers That Want to Prevent Employee Hospitalizations.
A Superior Approach is an On-Site Clinic or Direct Primary Care.
: Best for Larger Employers with Large Concentrations of Employees in One Location. Examples: Manufacturing, Municipalities
Direct Primary Care
: Best for Smaller Employers.
Examples: Law Firms, Accounting Firms, Financial Services Firms
The Annual Hospitalization Rate Per Year = 7%
For an Employer Group with 100 Health Plan Members, at $50,000
Per Hospitalization, that's $350,000
in Hospital Costs Per year.
A 20% Reduction in Hospitalizations Would Result in $70,000 in Savings or $700 Per Employee Per Year in Hospitalization Claims Alone.
