That was then...

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.
Regular readers may recall our piece on Direct Primary Care “wrap” policies from a few years back:

Pan-American VP Carlo Mulvenna was kind enough to walk me through the basic idea behind the plan’s design, as well as share product details.”

Recently, a reader emailed asking about the status of this plan:

Have you seen any new major medical/catastrophic wraps for DPC since the article was written in 2015?

So, I reached back out to Carlo Mulvenna (subject of the interview) who, as it turns out, is still with Pan American Life, and graciously responded with an update:

Henry,

Good to hear from you.

The MedLion relationship remains though they are focused on a new segment of Virtual Primary Care. For our traditional relationships of employers with large populations of hourly workers we have added a new relationship with HealthCare2U. I’ve attached a copy of our promotional/info piece.”

Regards,

Carlo

Very nice.

The brochure explains that the program is designed to offer “Affordable, Convenient Access To Healthcare” by packaging online tools and “unlimited same-day/next-day doctor appointments for acute issues at $10 a visit and around-the-clock telemedicine for no out-of-pocket cost.”

There are also tools and services available to help manage chronic diseases, which could be very handy.

The “bad” news, of course, is that we still don’t have a workable DPC “wrap” plan for catastrophic situations. Oh, well.

Thanks Carlo and Jeremy!
