Redirect Health launches plan for Maricopa County residents

In a move that makes healthcare more accessible for Maricopa County residents who are shut out of or fed up with traditional insurance, Redirect Health launched iEverydayCARE™, a high-quality, high-value healthcare plan with 24-7 logistical support to help people navigate the system.

“We have created a solution that transforms today’s flawed healthcare industry and gives people real healthcare at an affordable price,” said Dr. David Berg, co-founder of Redirect Health, a national healthcare company based in Scottsdale. “At just $105 a month, iEverydayCARE isn’t health insurance – it’s healthcare for people who are priced out of insurance and for those who are tired of paying more each year for fewer and fewer benefits.”

The 2017 collapse of Arizona’s individual health insurance market coupled with the escalating cost of health insurance have put affordable coverage out of reach for hundreds of thousands of people. Meanwhile, businesses that offer health benefits are passing more of the costs on to their staff, forcing many to opt out of company plans because they can’t afford high-deductibles, high copays and increasing monthly premiums.

“Even those who do buy insurance are afraid to use it unless there’s a catastrophe, so they suffer through the flu, a sprained ankle or back pain to avoid the cost of the deductible or copay,” added Berg.

At a monthly cost of $105 per person, or $300 per family – and with no deductible and $0 copay – iEverydayCARE is a new, healthcare-first product that addresses routine health needs and provides:

• 24-7 access to care logistics specialists to address immediate health needs

• Unlimited primary care, chiropractic, preventive visits, labs and immunizations

• Access to Redirect Health’s five accredited centers in in Glendale, Surprise/Sun City, Scottsdale, Chandler and Gilbert

• Integration of primary care, preventive care, chiropractic, and 24-7 concierge support

• Quick and easy enrollment at redirecthealth.com/ieverydaycare

• Enrollment or cancellation at any time

• Sixty-day money-back guarantee

• A healthcare-first model that eliminates the waste and administration built into traditional health insurance

If iEverydayCARE plan members are sick or injured, they call Redirect Health’s care logistics team 24-7, in English or Spanish, to speak with a specialist who quickly assesses healthcare needs and arranges for them to get care. The plan provides treatment for common health conditions such as sinusitis, flu, coughs and colds, conjunctivitis, back pain and other injuries.

When members need hospital, specialist or other non-routine healthcare, the care logistics team negotiates costs, arranges front-of-the-line privileges to cut down on wait times, briefs providers on members’ health issues in advance, and walks members through the entire process. Likewise, the company makes sure members get fair prices on prescription medications.

“Insurance is complex and expensive. iEverydayCARE is the exact opposite. It restores control over the system, gives people peace of mind, and provides a much more satisfying healthcare experience,” said Berg.

Redirect Health was founded in 2013 to help employers build affordable, high-quality healthcare plans using a self-insurance model. The company’s healthcare-first approach eliminates the waste, excess and inflated pricing of traditional health insurance while providing real, quality healthcare. The model allows employers of all sizes to cut healthcare expenses, build quality benefits packages and gain a competitive edge in attracting top talent. At the same time, Redirect Health’s concierge-style care logistics team helps members access the care they need, creating a much simpler, more convenient and more satisfying experience.

Redirect Health has expanded to 28 states and enjoys near-perfect client retention. The company is now piloting iEverydayCARE in Maricopa County to improve access to healthcare for individuals and families. Plans for national expansion are underway.
