R-Health doctors deliver comprehensive primary, preventive, urgent and chronic care, and coordinate your care with specialists. No co-pays, deductibles, or fuss.

WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT R-HEALTH

  1. R-Health doctors are capped at 1,000 patients per doctor versus an average of 2,500 per doctor for a traditional primary care physician in New Jersey. This gives our doctors the time they need to care for you.
  2. R-Health doctors do not bill your insurance. Instead we have a monthly membership that is covered 100% as part of your NJ state or school health benefits.
  3. There are no co-pays or hidden costs. This removes the financial barriers to great healthcare.
  4. You will have unlimited access to your R-Health doctor. Once you join, you’ll be able to contact your personal doctor via cell phone, e-mail, text, and through our member portal.

FAQ

What is Direct Primary Care?

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative model for primary care being embraced by patients, doctors, employers, and unions. The defining element of DPC is an enduring and trusting relationship between a member and his or her primary care doctor.

How is this different than a typical doctor’s office?

Direct Primary Care empowers primary care doctors to spend more time with members, thus building a real, enduring relationship. At its core, DPC brings back the traditional values of primary care medicine including convenient access to a personal physician. This means little or no wait time for an appointment and access to your personal doctor via phone and email.

How much does it cost?

The R-Health Direct Primary Care program is a free enhanced benefit for members of the New Jersey State Health Benefits Plan (SHBP) and School Employee’s Health Benefits Plan (SEHBP). There are no co-pays, deductibles, or any other hidden fees.

How does this affect my health insurance?

There is no impact on your health insurance, which is still there to protect you for any unexpected medical concerns. By adding R-Health Direct Primary Care as a free addition to your plan, you’ll also enjoy the very best, most convenient primary care.

Do I have to change my insurance?

No, this is not a change in your insurance. It does not impact your insurance at all. It is simply an add-on benefit for personalized primary care.
