Forthright Health bridges the divide between Employers and Primary Care Physicians
Simple & Direct
Forthright Health saves employers money by building large-scale Direct Primary Care contracting Networks. By contracting directly, Primary Care Physicians can focus on strong patient relationships based upon great service and accountability for health outcomes, not transactions and billing codes.
An easy plug-in solution that:
Sits alongside an employer’s existing PPO or other network
Fits in to employees’ busy daily lives
That means a choice of local physicians, not a one-size-fits-all on-site clinic
Employers Say Enough is Enough!
A self-insured employer wants to reduce healthcare costs and provide better employee benefits
Pay Less and Get More
Employees are tired of having their deductibles raised and not receiving anything in return, and want to access the healthcare system in a way that fits into their busy lives
Can’t Save the Body without Fixing the heart
US healthcare costs are driven by the system’s structure – Primary Care is the intake or “heart” of the system – costs are driven higher when Primary Care physicians have no choice but to push patients through appointments as quickly as possible by ordering lots of tests and referring to many specialists
Easily Scalable to Dispersed Employees
The employer supplies Forthright Health with a list of the cities and towns where employees live, and Forthright Health partners with the local Primary Care physicians in those communities
Direct, No Middleman
The employer agrees to contract directly with Forthright Health’s community of Primary Care doctors and make a monthly retainer payment (bypassing the insurance company or TPA) to any doctor chosen by an employee, no confusing insurance paperwork involved
Employees can choose any doctor within the Forthright Health community and access them 24/7, as many times as they need, using whatever means or technology is most convenient, and with ZERO copays, coinsurance, or surprise bills
Freedom and Convenience
Participating physicians are FREE to care for patients in the best way possible, using whatever means and technology is best for the patient (the physician and patient are no longer limited to the largely ineffective 10 minute office visit)
No Changing Doctors Required
Employees can choose either the Forthright Health Network physicians and pay $0 and have ZERO claims, or they can stick with their usual employer PPO or other network providers
No Long-Term Commitment
Payment is only made to a physician when an employee chooses one within the Forthright Health community, employees can choose a different physician every month or they can decide to go back to a physician within the employer’s PPO or other network, or they can go back and forth
Lower Cost, Better Benefits
Since employees now have a trusting relationship with a physician who they can access whenever they need and without any out-of-pocket costs, issues are addressed and managed without the need for high-cost specialists, tests, procedures, and hospitalization
Exclusive, large-scale physician communities are built by using established Primary Care Physicians who have convenient practice locations near where your employees live and work.
Here is an example of a relatively small Forthright Health community that was built in Southeast Michigan:
