Announcing Select Direct, an affordable way for those without insurance to access health care. For a fixed monthly payment, members of Select Direct have access to a variety of primary care services at MetroHealth. Since the plan is not insurance, there are no copays or deductibles, making for an overall lower out-of-pocket cost.
Select Direct offers three tiers of membership plans—Preferred, Premium and Platinum—each with its own monthly rate. The plans include doctor visits and a variety of age-appropriate screenings and immunizations. Patients and families will have access to MetroHealth’s more than 200 primary care physicians at more than 20 locations.
Cleveland Ballet has chosen to offer Select Direct to its dancers. In an industry that does not traditionally offer health coverage, the Ballet is investing in its team by offering a program that will make it easier and more affordable for dancers to stay healthy.
“We are always looking for cost-effective ways to meet the health care needs of the community,” said Holly Perzy, MD, executive director of MetroHealth Select and vice president of care delivery at MetroHealth. “This plan is extremely fitting for those in The Cleveland Ballet and we look forward to helping more people realize that affordable primary care is indeed available.”
“Healthy bodies, healthy mind, healthy dancers. Our goal is to nurture the dancer’s body to create a high quality artistic product,” said Gladisa Guadalupe, artistic director of Cleveland Ballet.
MetroHealth Select was created in 2009 as a health care coverage option for businesses throughout Northeast Ohio, and has been the network provider for many county employees. MetroHealth Select was established as a coverage option mostly associated with counties and municipalities but is now expanding and proving to be an excellent health care solution for small to larger-sized businesses in Cuyahoga County. MetroHealth Select is a clinically integrated network that provides the right care, at the right time, in the right place for the right price.
