Occupational health services provider CompChoice Inc. has joined Strada Healthcare, a direct primary care (DPC) network with more than 60 locations across nine states. Both entities are based in Omaha.
“As one of our region’s largest direct primary care networks, we find the needs of our patients, physicians and corporate customers growing,” Strada Healthcare President Michael Wade said. “Bringing CompChoice into our Strada Healthcare group expands our ability to provide advanced primary care solutions and continue our mission to create a better primary care model.”
CompChoice’s occupational medical services include:
- work injury treatment
- drug and alcohol testing
- regulatory examinations such as Department of Transportation physicals
- vision and hearing testing
- occupational physicals
- fit-for-duty evaluation
The practice also performs consultations for personal protective equipment and primary injury prevention. CompChoice’s physicians are specially trained to evaluate cause-and-effect relationships between work tasks or exposures and injury or illness. The providers strive to give top quality and cost-effective medical care to employees while maintaining an understanding for the business needs of employers.
“This acquisition is perfectly in line with our mission to make health care more personal and convenient,” Strada Healthcare Chief Medical Officer Dr. Joel Bessmer said.
“The occupational health industry is ripe for innovation, and we’re excited to show employers how our approach to personalized health care far exceeds the industry standard in occupational health.”
Strada Healthcare was founded to bring innovative and advanced primary care solutions to the market while lowering costs and improving outcomes. DPC is a rapidly growing model for delivering primary health care. Members pay a low monthly membership fee, which gives them access to their physician through traditional office visits along with phone calls, text messages, email and virtual visits. DPC physicians have fewer patients, which means greater availability, more in-depth visits, and a focus on preventive care. In addition to DPC, Strada’s services for employers include onsite clinics, near-site clinics, occupational health clinics, and virtual care for urgent and mental health needs.
Primary care services comprise 80 to 90 percent of typical health care needs. Covered services for Strada members range from annual physicals and lab work to acute-care visits and basic mental health. No co-pays are assessed, and members can avoid many of the high out-of-pocket costs that would otherwise be billed through insurance companies.
Strada Healthcare was founded in 2016 by Dr. Joel Bessmer in Omaha, Neb., and is one of the region’s largest Direct Primary Care (DPC) organizations with more than 60 locations across nine states: Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Colorado, Wisconsin, Texas, Michigan, Arizona and Washington, D.C. care that removes insurance Strada Healthcare is pioneering an innovative approach to health ; a from the primary care setting for flat monthly fee. more information on For more information Strada patients receive unlimited access to their primary care provider on Strada Healthcare, visit CompChoice , visit compchoice.net .wwwStradaHealthcare.com .
