In 2022, Taro Health brought their innovative health insurance products to Cumberland County, Maine. Taro Health offers multiple plans including some that include direct primary care at $0 to patients effectively eliminating the barrier to access to foundational primary care.
Direct Primary Care + Comprehensive Insurance
We believe all families deserve access to comprehensive primary care. Traditional comprehensive insurance includes primary care but their premiums are very expensive. High-deductible insurance lowers the monthly premium but typically only covers one preventative visit per year. This is not enough to keep our patients well. We partnered with Taro Health to create a new approach to health care. Taro Health provides insurance for specialist care, imaging, medications and unexpected higher-acuity care like hospital admissions and surgeries. Direct primary care offers patients access to their primary care physician that operates in a model that has the time to take care of them.
