What If I Need
Looking for alternatives to wrap-around health insurance from the healthcare.gov Marketplace?
Individuals and families who do not qualify for subsidies through the Affordable Care Act may find traditional insurance to be quite expensive, and the deductibles may be uncomfortably high. This is frustrating, and we understand.
Below are some alternatives to health insurance through the Marketplace that pair well with our Integrative Life Membership.
Medical Cost Sharing Plans
For patients open to nontraditional options and aligned in values, pairing coverage like Sedera Medical Cost Sharing with a membership to our clinic can provide personalized lifestyle medicine with efficient, cost-saving coverage. With health sharing, individuals and families have the opportunity to lower their expenses and improve the quality of their health care.
Instead of an insurance premium, members pay a monthly share. Every month that you do not have a shared medical expense, money you pay in is directed to another member who does have a medical need. Likewise, when you have an eligible medical expense, funds are directed to your costs.
Custom Insurance Through Independent Broker
Hummingbird Insurance (HI) is a locally owned insurance agency in Asheville that offers several creative solutions to help our community attain affordable insurance coverage. Many of their plans work very well with our Integrative Life Membership, which together can save on costs while providing coverage for medical events that fall outside of primary care. Through this combined approach, patients are able to get both primary care through our clinic and catastrophic coverage in case of non-primary care emergencies.
High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)
Patients may choose to pair their Integrative Life Membership with a general high deductible health plan (HDHP) from major insurance companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield. This plan ensures that should an emergency arise that requires specialized medical care such as surgery or a hospitalization, you will be financially protected. Combining our membership with a HDHP can save thousands of dollars.
