New Health Coverage Option Opens in Marquette, Provides Alternative to Traditional Health Insurance

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) – Marquette got a new direct primary care option with a different pricing guide on Monday.

North Country Health offers an alternative to traditional health insurance coverage – coverage in which patients pay a fixed monthly fee to access services and medications.

“There are a lot of people who work very hard and cannot afford to pay high insurance premiums and for this reason they may find it difficult to get good health care,” the owner said. North Country Health, Dr. says Ryan Brang. “What we want to be able to do is try to meet people where they are and provide good service and care at a very low cost if we can.”

Brang says direct primary care has been provided in other parts of the country, but he is new to UP. He says he wants the community to see what a difference it can make in accessing needed care.

“It’s been around for a good 20 years now. It’s less common here in rural areas, but it’s definitely gaining momentum,” Brang said. “You see him a lot in the big cities. What we hope to do is introduce him to Marquette, show that he is viable, that he can really make a difference in patient care and show that he can be a really effective way to get the care you need.

Brang hopes his company will give people a solution to health care costs, which he says are at an all-time high.

“Health care is extremely expensive and it’s only getting worse, and what we’re trying to do is help people with the financial burdens that come with health care and increased expenses” , Brang said. “Anything we can do to help patients with costs and provide them with good quality care is what we want to do.”
