The Sedera Health medical cost sharing model boldly challenges the insurance status quo. Through an innovative layering of healthcare services, we enable individuals and families access to high quality healthcare that is affordable, flexible and effective.
Sedera’s members can meet the Affordable Care Act (ACA) standard separately through an employer-sponsored self-insurance arrangement that includes Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC). This plan provides coverage for preventive services and well care visits and keeps you in compliance with the law.
In addition to sharing medical expenses, Sedera provides access to valuable Counseling, Medical Bill Negotiation, Telemedicine, Expert Second Opinion, and Personal Member Advisor services to all members.
Sedera Health’s core medical cost sharing model is supported by several additional services which enhance value and contribute to member quality of life.
Medical Cost Sharing
Members take part in a medical cost sharing model that is high quality, affordable, accessible and above all, effective. This alternative to health insurance offers lower monthly costs, reduced cost of care and compliance and credibility.
Personal Member Advisor
Advisors work with Sedera members everyday. From finding the best dentist for their children to getting the best possible price on medications, their job is to ensure each member has a wonderful experience and gets the best results possible from Sedera Health.
Members are provided unlimited use of 24/7/365 board-certified and state licensed physicians available via phone or online. These doctors are able to assess the situation and when appropriate prescribe medications.
Expert Second Opinion
No matter where a member is, they can speak with the best doctors in the world via phone or video consultation. All the best services without the travel, paperwork and costs.
Medical Bill Negotiation
Sedera’s team of skilled negotiators serve as trusted advisors for members seeking assistance with medical bill clarification. Experienced team members will negotiate the out-of-pocket balances members owe on medical bills, often resulting in significant cost reductions.
Sedera Health provides holistic healthcare, taking into account the mental, emotional and spiritual well being of members – in addition to the physical. Because of this, members have access to licensed Christian counseling services for when you need an ear the most.
