Breaking Down Barriers to Health Coverage for Diverse Populations

Breaking Down Barriers to Health Coverage for Diverse Populations
Breaking Down Barriers to Health Coverage for Diverse Populations

The journey towards universal health coverage is marked by numerous challenges, especially for diverse populations. The Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) 2023 Employer Health Benefits Survey highlights the disparities in health insurance coverage, with significant gaps existing among racial, ethnic, and income groups. Fundamental Care®'s Limited Day Health Plan Options are strategically designed to break down these barriers, offering equitable and accessible healthcare solutions.

The Reality of Health Insurance Disparities

According to the KFF findings, racial and ethnic minorities, along with low-income families, are disproportionately represented among the uninsured. These disparities reflect broader systemic issues that extend beyond just access to healthcare. It is not just a matter of health equity but of social justice.

The Fundamental Care® Approach to Inclusivity

Fundamental Care® addresses these disparities head-on. The health plans are tailored to offer near comprehensive coverage that is accessible and affordable for all, irrespective of their background or income level. Specifically, part-time and hourly populations.

  • No Health Questions: Our enrollment process is designed to be inclusive, ensuring that past health issues do not become a barrier to obtaining coverage.

  • Preventative Services at No Extra Cost: We cover 100% of preventative services, recognizing the importance of early detection and regular health check-ups in reducing long-term health disparities.

  • Unlimited Virtual Direct Primary Care: This feature is particularly beneficial for those who may face geographical or transportation barriers in accessing traditional healthcare services.

Diverse workforces require health plans that are flexible and accommodating of various needs. Fundamental Care®’s plans are designed to be adaptable, ensuring that employers can provide health benefits that resonate with their diverse employee base.
