Employee Health Benefit Program
At Integrative Family Medicine our goal is to provide all people with affordable quality health care. We are committed to providing accessible, scalable options for employers to serve their employee health necessities. Whether a small or large business, we have programs that can suit your needs.
With primary care and urgent care services through Integrative Family Medicine, employers are able to provide access to longer visits, a personal approach, and an integrative perspective that promotes sustainable health.
Including the inherent value of healthier, happier employees, employers also improve the value of their business. Employers are able to save on health care costs by as much as 20-50%, while at the same time improving employee health, retention, and productivity.
Furthermore, businesses who provide medical care through Integrative Family Medicine will have reduced requirements to qualify as a “living wage employer”, a certification overseen by local non-profit Just Economics
Employees receiving health care at Integrative Family Medicine will enjoy having a personalized approach to primary care that is otherwise available to a very small percentage of people in the United States. Specific benefits include office visit length 2-3x the national average, laboratory costs for standard labs at no cost, and priority next available appointment slots.
Many employers have begun to notice that rates on their existing health plans have actually risen with the institution of the Affordable Care Act (ACA.) Employers are transitioning to high deductible plans to cut expenses, but these plans can limit access to the very services that prevent or manage the illnesses that are most costly to both the employer and staff.
Pairing a high deductible ACA plan with the Integrative Life Membership is often significantly less expensive than providing a lower deductible comprehensive plan. Your employees get optimal care while you realize the cost savings of decreased premiums and decreased illness-related expense.
We are proud to offer this alternative to our Asheville community. Across the country, many physicians are adopting a similar financial model as they realize it is an affordable way to provide better, more personal care that focuses on prevention, wellness, and quality of life.
