HOW DOES SEDERA’S MEDICAL COST SHARING WORK?
The Sedera Health medical cost sharing model boldly challenges the insurance status quo. Through an innovative layering of healthcare services, Sedera enables individuals and families access to high quality healthcare that is affordable, flexible and effective.

In addition to sharing medical expenses, Sedera provides access to valuable Counseling, Medical Bill Negotiation, Telemedicine, Expert Second Opinion, and Personal Member Advisor services to all members.
 
Sedera’s members who select any program other than the Direct Primary Care option can obtain Affordable Care Act (ACA)-required preventive care separately through an employer- or Association-sponsored self-insurance arrangement that includes Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC). The MEC provides coverage for preventive services and well care visits.

Direct Primary Care providers offer most preventive care services. Preventive mammograms, colonoscopies, and childhood immunizations and vaccinations are provided in accordance with the Access Membership Guidelines.
What is Medical Cost Sharing?
Instead of paying monthly premiums to an insurance company, members share a given amount on a monthly basis and draw from community funds as medical Needs arise.

Monthly shares are generally lower than typical insurance premiums. Through Sedera’s medical cost sharing model, members save between 30 – 60% (or more) of the costs that are typically incurred with health insurance plans.
