Last year, the State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) introduced the Direct Primary Care pilot program focused on to provide quality health care while reducing health care costs for union members and their families!
Any active SHBP member in a PPO or tiered network plan can join the Direct Primary Care program. You can join anytime during the year— not just during open enrollment.
When you visit a Direct Primary Care facility, you will pay absolutely NO COPAYS no matter how many times you see the doctor. It provides:
Unlimited access to a personal physician for members and their families.
Same-day and next-day appointments
Evening and weekend hours
Little to no time in the waiting room
Access to the doctor via cell phone, e-mail, and digital messaging
On-site lab draws at no cost.
On-site dispensing of a 7-day supply of medications for acute conditions at no additional cost to you
On-site immunizations at no cost.
This care is all provided at NO COST with no co-pay or deductible and works with your current health plan. No need for you to change plans— just your doctor.
Direct Primary Care services are provided by R-Health and Paladina Health.
