Infographic: The Traditional Approach to Health Insurance is Backwards

In the United States, even employees with employer-sponsored health insurance struggle to access or pay for basic primary care. The upfront costs of healthcare make annual and preventative healthcare cost-prohibitive for financially vulnerable employees.

It has also been determined that adults who regularly visit a primary care physician (PCP) “experience lower mortality and incur reduced healthcare costs,” Scientifica reports. Primary care is critical for employees, their families, and even employers as a result. Access our latest infographic here for a visual understanding of the shortcomings of today's employer-sponsored health insurance, and why the traditional approach to health insurance is backwards.

In a study published in AJMC, patients without cost-sharing for primary care visits “experienced a $12.0 per member per month relative reduction in overall spending... driven by reductions in expenditures for emergency department (ED) visits and other outpatient services, which aligned with reduced utilization of ED visits and other outpatient services.”

Nonstop Administration and Insurance Services’ first-dollar coverage approach to health plan design can reduce or eliminate employer health care costs while also reducing upfront medical expenses for employees and their families so they can afford cost-savings and life-saving primary and preventative care.
