Saint Francis Healthcare System is pleased to announce its new direct contracting health insurance option – Saint Francis Health Plans.
Backed by the nationally recognized quality and safety of Saint Francis Healthcare System, area employers with five or more employees can save money on healthcare costs and improve the overall health of their staff through Saint Francis Health Plans.
“This is a monumental step in expanding care to the communities we are privileged and called to serve,” says Dr. Maryann Reese, president and chief executive officer of Saint Francis Healthcare System. “All patients deserve access to our award-winning quality and safety. Saint Francis Health Plans ensures high-quality, affordable care for its members.”
Offering employers options to meet their needs, each plan is designed to keep care local. Area employers have access to all Saint Francis providers, as well as hundreds of other regional healthcare providers, at a Tier 1 level. If care is needed outside the network, comprehensive benefits still apply. Emergency care is always provided at the Tier 1 benefit level regardless of where care is provided. In addition to comprehensive healthcare services, Health Plans offers care management to increase patient experience and outcomes with an emphasis on preventative care. Preventive health services are covered under all plans with no additional out-of-pocket costs when provided by our in-network providers. Preventative care can help reduce overall medical expenses as it helps identify or treat disease as soon as possible.
“Our approach is designed to lower member and employer costs, improve member benefits and establish long-term partnerships with care providers,” says Alex Ogburn, MBA, vice president – Saint Francis Medical Partners. “We believe keeping care local while providing personalized healthcare services and care coordination is best for our local employers and providers.”
