Know anything about Harken Health?

So this is a new provider that just started selling health insurance on the exchange here in GA, and they've recently opened new clinics. The interesting thing about their offer is that all visits to their clinics are no extra cost, but I don't know exactly what that means; i.e. is it just primary care stuff or are they like Kaiser with a bunch of affiliated docs.

They offer 3 levels of coverage with all plans - free care with their clinic docs, a very comprehensive network in our area including all of the local docs and hospitals for the usual in-network deductibles and out of pocket max, and the usual no-ceiling on costs for out of network coverage (you pay 20% of OON cost after deductible is met). And they're the second cheapest on the Bronze and Silver tiers. I'm not going to risk it for the spouse and I (we're with Humana now on their national access PPO plan) for at least the first year so we can see how Harken shakes out, but was thinking about recommending it to my son when he signs up for 2016 on the exchange because all he will likely need (if anything) is a clinic visit for flu or whatever minor stuff he gets.

They probably use a UHC provider network.

Dear MBSC,

It is with pleasure I introduce to you Harken Health, an independently operated affiliate of UnitedHealthcare created to reimagine health care from the ground up. We are a company built on the foundation of relationships to improve care rather than transactions.

We have developed a combination of a care delivery model and robust insurance offering that we believe to be truly extraordinary. Our goal is to create a new standard in health care that our members will love to use. You may already be aware of our new Health Centers being built out in Chicago and Atlanta designed to serve as our members’ home base for care.

Some of our differentiating features will include:
• Unlimited primary care visits at Harken Health Centers, which are reserved exclusively for our members
• A dedicated Care Team made up of doctors, nurses, Health Coaches and Behavioral Health Specialists
• 24/7 access to the Harken Health Center Care Team via phone, email or video chat as well as access to one of the nation's largest networks of hospitals and specialists

Harken Health will be offered in the individual market in Illinois and Georgia both on- and off-exchange for January 1st, 2016, effective dates.
