Vera Whole Health is transforming healthcare. For insurers and employers alike, Vera helps take control of perpetually rising healthcare costs. Vera s behavior change model via onsite primary care clinics improves health and productivity, reducing claims and overall cost of care by as much as 25% in the first year.

Vera s model is anchored by three core elements: high engagement, managed care and organizational culture change, which combine to drive down utilization of costly services like ER, inpatient/outpatient visits, specialty services, labs and prescriptions, and transform the overall health of the organization.

Vera is the first plan-sponsored health center in the United States to earn a Certificate of Validation by the Care Innovations Validation Institute. This endorsement substantiates Vera s claims that its approach reduces overall healthcare spending for employers, justifies Vera s 100 percent money-back guarantee, and recognizes Vera for its sound population health cost outcomes.
