DES MOINES, Iowa (KWQC) - A new health plan for self-funded employers is being offered in Iowa. Centivo, a new type of health plan which can cost less that traditional insurance, announced Tuesday that it will enter the Iowa market through a partnership with MercyOne health system.

According to a news release, self-funded employers will be able to offer an affordable health plan to their employees with no deductible, no coinsurance, free primary care coverage, and simple and predictable copays. The plan is available now for self-funded employers with a July 1, 2021 renewal date or later. The Incirca Health Network will offer personalized access to health care through the MercyOne Population Health Services Organization (PHSO) Partnered Provider Network.

“We are proud and excited to work with Iowa employers and their advisers via our new relationship with MercyOne and its Incirca Health Network,” said Ashok Subramanian, CEO of Centivo.

“Aligning MercyOne’s proven track record of building high value networks and population health programs with Centivo’s innovative health plan approach, digital expertise and member engagement abilities will come together to provide an opportunity to further reduce health care expenditures by partnering with Iowa employers and their employees,” said Derek Novak, President of MercyOne Population Health Services Organization.
