1 The Qliance Direct Primary Care Medical Home: Improving Care and Reducing Costs Presented to: CLG Employer Resources Erika Bliss, MD – President & CEO of Qliance August 9, 2012

2 Current Healthcare Costs: Fiscal Cancer Qliance Confidential & Proprietary2 17% of GDP, projected to be >19% by % of bankruptcies in 2010 were due to medical expenses Primary care is severely underfunded (only represents 3% of medical expenditures) Burdensome fee-for-service insurance billing system undermines potential of primary care Total annual healthcare costs = $2.6T ($8047 per person per year)

3 The Effect of Inadequate Primary Care ($$$) Emergency Care ($$$) Hospital Care ($$$) Specialist Care ($$$) End of Life Care Primary Care Qliance Confidential & Proprietary An ineffective primary care system pushes patients to expensive down-stream care. The result is an increase in health care costs for employers and employees.

4 Effective Primary Care Changes the Dynamic… ($) Emergency Care ($) Hospital Care ($) Specialist Care ($) End of Life Care Primary Care Primary care can address 80-90% of medical issues Primary care can catch little problems (hyperglycemia) before they become big problems (diabetes) Robust primary care reduces need for expensive downstream care But, good primary care requires doctors to spend time with their patients Qliance Confidential & Proprietary

5 The Solution: Operate outside of traditional insurance – reserve insurance for undesirable, costly events – pay direct for primary care which is desirable and low-cost – eliminate high administrative overhead for primary care practices Charge a monthly fee – low-cost: $64 per month – eliminates negative incentives of the fee-for-service system – incentivizes doctors to focus on holistic care – no co-pays or additional charges for visits and services Provide great access – limit patient panel size – offer minute appointments – multi-modal access, including office, phone, and e-visits – extended office hours and weekend hours – 24x7 physician coverage Qliance Confidential & Proprietary
