Table Health Offers First Membership-Based Healthcare Model for Employers in Northern Michigan


Table Health, a Functional Medicine and Primary Care practice located in the Village at the Grand Traverse Commons, has expanded its health offerings to include membership-based healthcare for businesses of all sizes.

The Table Health business solution is based on a Direct Primary Care (DPC) model. This direct financial relationship between a patient and their physician, is a rapidly growing healthcare model for individuals, families, and businesses due to transparent and reduced costs, access, and more time with providers.

Relationship-Based Care

“DPC is redefining health care,” said Jill Butryn, MD, president and co-founder of Table Health, “It’s really about strong patient-provider, relationship-based primary care practice that I believe can offer a better way to pursue healing in an open-minded and respectful manner, unencumbered by barriers inherent in the current model of healthcare delivery.”

Employers can now control costs and effectively manage their benefits program while also offering their employees smart, convenient healthcare options. With Table Health, employees can have all their primary health care needs covered by one simple, affordable monthly payment. They have access to local, board certified primary care physicians who can address their most common health care needs, like annual exams, prescribed medications, lab work, and more.

“Making this decision to provide Table Health, DPC for our employees has allowed us to financially support them in a model of health care that helps them prevent problems from arising in the first place,” said Bradley Hahn, a Traverse City business owner.

Under this model, employees of self funded businesses and covered dependents have no additional cost for medical services when they visit Table Health (DPC) providers. What’s more, they gain additional cost advantages for chiropractic, physical therapy, occupational therapy and behavioral health services.

Save Money

Just one of the ways this model saves money is access. Table Health provides on-site and after-hours care, both virtually and in person. With such greater access to primary care physicians, employees don’t have to visit an urgent care or emergency room. In fact, this care model reduces urgent care and emergency room visits by as much as 40%. This greatly reduces the cost of care too. With Table Health, employees build a closer relationship with their own physicians while reducing the cost of the care they need.

Quality Care

As with all Table Health Memberships, including those for individuals and families, members can expect the highest quality care with simple and up-front costs as well as longer appointment times with board accredited medical providers and a certified team that is trained in functional medicine, health coaching, nutrition, movement, and advanced testing.

For those who are growing more concerned about the cost of healthcare for themselves or their families while experiencing significant declines in value and satisfaction, DPC can be a surprisingly affordable option. With recent average costs of individual health insurance premiums at $440 for an individual and $1,168 for a family, not even including the extra out of pocket costs, which on average is $4,328/individual and $8,352/family, plus co-pays, a Table Health Primary Membership could save someone a lot of money with $564 as the average annual membership cost.
