Attend the Executive Healthcare Forum

On Tuesday, March 21, an Executive Healthcare Forum is scheduled to take place in North San Diego County to discuss the launch of a pioneering healthcare insurance service offering direct contracting of services between physicians and San Diego County employers. The self-funded healthcare model will be offered to employers throughout San Diego County with as few as 100 employees. More details will follow in the coming weeks regarding this forum.

This healthcare insurance service was designed from the outset to enable physicians to provide proactive care for patients while giving employers previously unavailable data on their overall healthcare expenditures, all in an effort to improve outcomes and reduce healthcare costs for employers and their employees.
