Cost-effective Concept Ideal for Patients Without Insurance or with High Deductible Plans
East Windsor, NJ – April 18, 2012 – A revolutionary healthcare model is coming to East Windsor, New Jersey. East Windsor Family Practice has teamed with Physician Care Direct to make healthcare affordable through direct pay services and Physician Care Direct Care Card™ plans. This medical model benefits those in the community who are uninsured, and also appeals to those with high deductible plans or Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). East Windsor Family Practice will incorporate this model into its existing practice and will continue to accept insured patients.
For patients without healthcare insurance or with high-deductible plans, East Windsor Family Practice now offers Physician Care Direct Care Card™ plans, the best value for improving long-term health and wellness. The plans offer patients affordable primary care, as well as the security of a medical home where they can see their doctor for sick visits, or for ongoing treatment to manage chronic illnesses such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
East Windsor Family Practice offers two Care Card™ plans. The $43 per month Healthy Lifestyle Care Card™ plan includes a comprehensive annual physical including age and gender appropriate screenings, an annual flu shot, diet and exercise counseling, smoking cessation counseling (if needed), and office visits for just a $20 scheduling fee. The Basic Health Care Card™ plan, offered for an annual payment of $199, includes a comprehensive annual physical including age and gender appropriate screenings, and office visits for just a $49 scheduling fee. Additional services and equipment not included in the plans are provided at affordable, transparent prices. Care Cards are not insurance, but private contracts for medical services.
Members of the Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce may purchase Care Card™ plans at special discounted pricing. As a Chamber of Commerce member, Dr. Cohen recognizes that many employers want to provide a meaningful healthcare benefit to their employees, but often can’t afford the traditional insurance options available in the marketplace. The Healthy Business Care Card™ is available to Chamber members at a rate of just $39 per employee per month and includes the same services as the Healthy Lifestyle plan.
