Relationship-driven healthcare changes everything. When care is both highly personal and highly convenient, employees naturally make their primary care doctor their first call. This means employees get better care, and employers see fewer claims.

Frequently asked questions for employers
Your company's healthcare — simplified.
Primary Health Partners operates under the Direct Primary Care model. Our doctors are equipped to handle about 80-90% of peoples’ needs. Our doctors hope to eliminate the need for urgent care altogether and be there for the everyday events such as taking care of a cold, the flu, wellness exams, diabetes management, stitches, casting placement, and IV fluids. We believe insurance should be used for the catastrophic, major events. Primary Health Partners memberships pair best with a high deductible/catastrophic plan.
Members pay a transparent, monthly membership fee. They do not pay per visit, but per month. On average a visit to an urgent care alone would cost around $150, with a provider who does not have a relationship with the patient. With Primary Health Partners, a patient would pay the subscription cost and could see their provider 1 or 30 times in a month. Their insurance would not be billed for the visits, and this would lead to a decrease in overall claims. In insurance terms, the smaller number of claims made to a plan, the lower the premium will be for the following year.
Absolutely not. Employers can offer this as a voluntary benefit. Employees could maintain a positive relationship with their primary care provider and utilize one of our providers as well for needs after hours or at times when they need to see a doctor urgently to ensure they avoid an unnecessary urgent care or ER visit. This saves the patient money and the employer’s plan money as well.
We do not enforce a contract. We operate under month-to-month memberships. We have seen how much our members enjoy utilizing Primary Health Partners and want people to continue to have the freedom to not feel tied into a contract.
This does not require any type of integration with an insurance plan. We encourage our employers to offer a high deductible or catastrophic plan in tandem with a membership, but employers can offer this type of membership as a stand-alone offer.
They can be offered at any time. They do not have to be offered at renewal. We find it most helpful for our providers to come to open enrollment meetings or for a meeting to be setup if it is offered during a separate time so they can explain to employees about the model and the direct access.
We partner with Direct Primary Care clinics across the country. We are constantly growing our network of clinics who utilize the Direct Primary Care model and are happy to do the administrative work.
“One of my favorite things about Primary Health Partners is the amount of money I save. One of my prescriptions is $258/mo at an outside pharmacy without insurance. That same prescription at PHP is $29/for THREE months. I had a blood workup at PHP and it was only $29. The last time I had one it was at a different doctor's office and it cost me $93 after insurance paid their part. You can't beat the cost!”
“Dr. Rickner and his staff are amazing. He is compassionate and skilled and he really spends time listening to his patients which is increasingly rare in this day and age.”
“Not only are we receiving the best health care we’ve ever gotten, but we are also saving unbelievable amounts of time and money.”
“This has been the best health care in years!! My doctor is so caring and compassionate. The staff is excellent! He is just a text or a call away from me with any of my health issues. Instead of sending you to the ER or Urgent Care, he will handle it personally!”
