FreedomDoc and healthsharing are two healthcare models that can work together to provide comprehensive and affordable healthcare benefits to individuals and families. FreedomDoc is a membership-based primary care model that provides patients with direct access to their primary care physicians without the need for insurance. Healthsharing, on the other hand, is a non-insurance health plan where members share healthcare costs.
FreedomDoc and a healthsharing can provide an alternative to traditional health insurance plans by offering a more personalized and cost-effective healthcare experience. Here’s how it works:
First, individuals and families sign up for a FreedomDoc membership, which typically costs between $85 to $100 per month for adults. This membership provides them with access to their primary care physician, who can provide a range of primary care services, including preventative care, chronic disease management, and acute care. This membership also helps patients avoid urgent care, emergency rooms, specialty visits, and surgeries.
Second, individuals and families sign up for a healthshare membership, which allows them to share healthcare costs with other members of the plan. Healthshare memberships typically cost between $150 to $500 per month, depending on the plan chosen (how much the patient wants to pay before plan coverage kicks in, similar to a deductible), a patient’s age, and smoking habits.
When a member needs healthcare services, they visit their FreedomDoc physician, who provides them with the necessary care. If the physician and member needs additional services, such as lab work, imaging, or specialist care, their DPC physician can utilize vendor partner discounts or refer them to an outside provider.
Members then submit their medical bills to the healthshare plan, which reviews the bills and shares the costs among members who have contributed to the cost-sharing pool.
By combining FreedomDoc and healthsharing, individuals and families can have access to personalized and comprehensive primary care services, as well as cost-sharing for additional healthcare needs. This combination can be an excellent option for those who are looking for a more affordable and personalized healthcare experience outside of the traditional health insurance system.
