(Note to readers: I was asked to write about the new insurance concept being offered by Harken Health. They are compensating me for this post, but as always, my opinion remains my own. I’ll be writing a follow up post after the grand opening to tell you all about the facility once I see it for myself.)
This year is all about facing some fears and getting fit again, mentally and physically, and I’ve already started making little changes, like taking at least a ten minute walk by myself each day. Yoga and Zumba classes are also on my list to start working into my schedule.
I’ve only tried each one for a few minutes before, so finding classes to make them a regular part of my week will be important. It just so happens both are being offered as part of a membership in a new kind of healthcare plan launching in Atlanta.
It’s called Harken Health, and the company is opening several facilities around our region.
Harken Health administrators say they’re aspiring to change what the world expects from health care.
The intent is to deliver a combined, no-charge primary care and simple insurance model. That’s right—you read no-charge. Sweet, right? Unlimited, too. So, you can go see your doctor as many times as you think you need—without a fee beyond your monthly insurance premium.
Cool concept, right?
They’ll have six new innovative health centers in Atlanta, each with open houses this Saturday. The Health Centers are located in Austell, Brookhaven, Decatur, Duluth, East Cobb and Roswell. You can see specific locations by clicking on this link.
People who want insurance coverage can choose from Gold, Silver or Bronze plans and a health insurance tax credit can be applied. All plans include:
- Unlimited, no-charge primary care visits at Harken Health Centers; a dedicated, personal Care Team available by phone, email, text or video chat;
- 24-hour, 7-days a week access to Harken Health doctors; a nationwide network of approximately 850,000 physicians, medical professionals and hospitals;
- Complimentary wellness classes like nutrition, cooking, yoga and overall fitness at the Health Centers;
- And prescription drug coverage, online ordering and optional home delivery.
This weekend, they’ll be offering free Zumba at the Duluth location and a free yoga class at the Brookhaven class (that’s where I plan to be Saturday). Which class would you rather take?
