What is HIPnation?
In today’s healthcare system, you use insurance whether you have a cough or cancer. This is a problem.
Insurance is expensive and raises the cost of healthcare. Insurance should only be used for the worrisome events — not things like physicals, the management of chronic medical conditions, or the common cold.
HIPnation is a new model for the delivery of primary care, giving patients 24/7 access by phone, secure message text, or video to their personal HIPnation Primary Care Physician. Additionally, the doctor now has more time and resources to devote to the patient.
HIPnation is not insurance. HIPnation has removed the insurance burden and costs from the primary care area of healthcare so there are no insurance forms, no pre-qualifications, and no cost uncertainties.
This access to your personal Primary Care Physician is the foundation of our new healthcare ecosystem, redesigned to put insurance only where it is needed, thus reducing your total overall healthcare costs and refocusing healthcare on you.
And when you do need to access care outside of primary care, we have low HIPnation-negotiated True Cost rates for labs, imaging, and specialty services.
We then take our high-quality, low-cost, patient-centered healthcare ecosystem and pair it with insurance products to offset the cost of care and protect against those rare, high-cost catastrophic events that worry us all. Since most of healthcare can be managed in primary care and is no longer under the constraints of insurance, the cost of these insurance products decreases significantly as well.
HIPnation offers a comprehensive healthcare solution for less than $300 per month in many cases to most members.
What makes HIPnation different from healthcare insurance?
HIPnation is not insurance and HIPnation is not an insurance company. The biggest difference is that HIPnation removes insurance, its restrictions, and complexities from primary care. With HIPnation the relationship is between you and your primary care physician – the way it should be. Today, many physicians serve 3,000 or more patients – some see 35 or more patients a day! The current, insurance-driven healthcare model is so broken physicians are forced to increase patient load in order to make their practices work.
Because your HIPnation doctor has a much smaller patient panel, the doctor has the time to give you the preventative services that will help keep you well. And if you need your doctor, you can get the care you need by making an appointment – usually for the same day – or access your physician by phone, secure message text, or even video.
How does this model make me healthier?
Most traditional primary care physicians have 1000’s of patients. We limit our HIPnation physicians to 700. Why? This allows them to have more face time with YOU. When a physician has time to get to know the whole you, this means a healthier you!
Primary care is designed to help prevent health problems and treat new issues as early as possible. When Primary Care Physicians have the flexibility and support, they are able to handle 60-80% of your healthcare needs.
Studies show that patients with access to a personal 24/7 Primary Care Physician experience:
- 66% fewer specialist visits
- 65% fewer emergency department visits
- 82% fewer surgeries
- 35% fewer hospitalizations
Who started HIPnation?
HIPnation was started by a group of concerned, practicing physicians who believed they had found the answer to the U.S. healthcare problems that politicians have been trying to solve for 30 years. Members of the team have testified before Congress, as well as spoken across the U.S. for the last 8 years. The Physicians take care of patients every day and know the burden of the broken U.S. healthcare system on an individual in the actual treatment room.
