Where we were as a city $10.6 million $11.0 million Fear of not maintaining adequate reserves required by the state Experiencing large claims Employees not managing healthcare cost to the level we needed Wellness had a poor participation rate
A CCESS TO CARE ! Our broker suggested we open a on-site clinic TPA had been using on-site health & wellness clinics for 6 years We looked at 3 models and then decided to go with the cost- basis model with an administrative fee for management services. All direct costs of operating the clinic are passed through to the city on a direct basis. Initial set-up cost vary depending on construction of the clinic. Some client use existing space with modifications; others have created or renovated a new space. The mi-Care clinic requires space for 2 exam rooms, a small lab, bathroom, doctors office and a reception area.
