There is a blind spot present in many places of work that creates health inequities for employees: the design of employer-sponsored health benefits. Traditional health insurance options often require premium cost sharing and include copayments, deductibles, and coinsurance, creating barriers to care for employees and inhibiting their use of services.
Designing insurance plans using a first-dollar coverage approach, which can cover copays and other costs up front removes these barriers to care, promotes health equity and, in many ways, aligns with the health center movement.
