WHO IS ELLIGIBLE FOR THE ESSENTIAL MEMBERSHIP?

The Essential Membership is available for combined billing when sharing at work and when enrolled in a direct primary care (DPC) membership practice.

COMBINED BILLING

Individuals can enroll in Zion Health and enjoy a combined bill managed through their business, organization, or association. Two Zion Health households are required to set up a combined bill. Employers can set up automatic payroll deductions and pay optional contributions towards their employees’ Zion Health memberships.

DIRECT PRIMARY CARE MEMBERSHIP PRACTICE

Direct primary care (DPC) is a membership model for healthcare services between individuals and their primary care provider. With a DPC membership, patients make an agreement directly with their care provider and pay a monthly membership subscription fee that provides a set of services. DPC promotes a trusting relationship between doctor and patient and eliminates service fees and third-party billing. Zion Health members can enroll in any DPC practice of their choice.

HOW ZION HEALTH WORKS

When a member of Zion Health has a medical need, they are first responsible for paying their Initial Unshareable Amount (IUA). The IUA is the personal responsibility of the member for their medical needs.  All qualified medical expenses after the IUA is met are shareable with the Zion Health community. Zion Health has three simple responsibility options, so you can choose a plan that fits your budget.

INITIAL UNSHAREABLE AMOUNTS

NO LIFETIME LIMITS

All qualified medical expenses after IUA is met are shareable with the Zion Health community at 100% without an annual or lifetime limit. Members pay a maximum of 3 IUAs per 12-month period.

CALCULATED PER NEED

A member’s IUA is calculated per medical need, meaning members only pay 1 IUA for each need. Members do not pay another IUA for the same need unless they are symptom free for a 12-month period.

How the IUA works

SAVINGS

Members generally save by having an IUA compared to an insurance deductible or annual unshared amount when a large medical need arises.

How you benefit from an IUA model

Take advantage of the Zion Health Essential Membership program for companies, associations, and individuals with direct primary care. Connect with us to learn more or get started.
