A fellow DPC physician has created a very helpful resource for comparing the most common healthshare plans.
We were nervous about signing up for a Health Cost Share plan, but premiums and deductibles for health insurance were just too high. We had an unexpected hospitalization and put Sedera to the test. We incurred a $140,000 hospital bill! While we had to be somewhat organized and submit our invoices online to Sedera, our final out-of-pocket cost was only $700!! With traditional insurance our out-of-pocket would have been much more, not to mention a much high monthly premium.
My husband and I use Zion Health Cost Share in addition to Preferred Family Medicine for our primary care. He's active and relatively healthy, so we thought. One day he started experiencing chest pain and high blood pressure. One thing led to another, eventually landing him in the hands of a cardiologist and a coronary artery stent for a blockage. We worked with Zion as we started getting the bills. They negotiated a significant cash discount (from $54,000 to $36,000) and reimbursed for all of the expenses minus our "unshared amount" of $1000! It did take some time and working with the rep, but we saved a ton of money.
Together, Direct Primary Care and Medical Cost Sharing provide an innovative, non-insurance solution for quality healthcare.
Everyone needs healthcare. Insurance is just one way to pay for it.
