New Direct Care Benefit to LU Employees

New Direct Care Benefit to LU Employees

Bringing Healthcare Excellence to Our Community

Rehab Associates of Central Virginia joins Collaborative Health Partners in offering Direct Care to Liberty University employees. Through a contract with Rehab Associates, an outpatient physical therapy provider, Liberty will offer direct access to physical therapists, providing for quicker treatments to limit pain and return to function, all while saving both the employee and employer time and money.

Liberty already offers a Direct Primary Care Program (DPC), a program designed to improve employees’ scope of health benefits by increasing access to preventive care, sick care, physician-directed wellness resources, and physician-directed disease management services at no out-of-pocket cost to the employee, through a contract with Collaborative Health Partners, a clinically integrated physician network of primary care providers.

These new models of care offer Liberty a unique opportunity to better control their healthcare spending while giving employees direct access to high-quality providers at low to no out-of-pocket cost. Beginning July 1, the Rehab Associates Direct Care option will be offered as a voluntary enhance- ment to LU’s existing health plan options.

“We are excited to expand our health benefit offerings with the help of Rehab Associates," said Steve Foster, LU’s Vice President of Human Resources. “Not only does this afford our employees faster and easier access to the care they need, but it also greatly reduces our institutional cost of care and keeps care local with a national leader in physical therapy outcomes. Truly a win-win for all.”

Joshua Bailey, DPT, President and CEO of Rehab Associates, said, “We share LU’s goal of getting employees the care they need when they need it. Whether patients are dealing with chronic pain, recovering from an injury, or contending with a physical limitation, we understand the importance and urgency of returning patients to their daily routines. We applaud LU for looking for innovative ways to help their employees and are proud to have been selected as a trusted healthcare partner.”
