Your health plan needs Health Guardianship
You should be in control of your own healthcare. You need a team that delivers high-quality care and guards you from the unnecessary care being prescribed in the current “sick care” system.
That’s the power of Health Guardianship.
10+ years guarding more than 70,000 members from the waste, harm and high costs associated with medical services that don’t improve your health.
Healthcare in the U.S. is dysfunctional
Primary care has become less about delivering care and more about referring you into the arms of hospital-employed specialists. While this shift claims to be in your best interest, you now experience less time with your doctors, longer wait times, higher costs and unnecessary procedures.
That’s not okay.
We identified the misalignments in healthcare that drive waste and inflate costs
We reverse them through Health Guardianship
of Doctors are Now Employed by Hospitals
These doctors are incentivized to refer you to a specialist within their system. BowTie physicians deliver primary care independently of the system, with a focus on effectively solving your healthcare problems in a timely manner.
of Healthcare Expenses are Wasteful
This waste is paid for primarily by employers and employees. Health Guardianship avoids expensive, unnecessary specialty care and helps you find the best quality, most convenient, fairest-price care when needed.
of Employees are on High Deductible Health Plans
This leads more people to delay or avoid needed care. Health Guardianship makes it easy to get care and puts you in control of how much you want to spend with our variable-deductible plan design. Most major care will cost $0 when you allow your Health Guardian team to work for you.
These misalignments drive more than costs.
They cause hidden HARM for individuals.
This “more is better” approach costs $101 billion annually in medically unnecessary and low-value care.
The average wait time for all specialties is now 26+ days - even for simple conversations with a doctor. Meanwhile, errors and fraudulent billing throw people further into debt.
Health risks associated with treatments are often not fully laid out. Care tends to focus only on treating disease and not reducing the risks that lead to disease and health events.
Poor care coordination can cause critical things like long-term Rx interactions, adverse events, follow-up care, emotional health and more to be overlooked.

"I was planning on heading out of town and needed to see a doctor. I thought my only option was urgent care, but when I called my Health Guardian, they connected me to a BowTie physician right away. I got the care I needed for $0 out-of-pocket."

Chronic conditions are preventable. Why not prevent them?
Health Guardians proactively outreach to all members to review previous claims. Our approach focuses on preventive care, early detection and education, aiming to improve overall health outcomes and foster a stronger patient-doctor relationship.
We built these specific plans because they focus on managing the modifiable conditions that are driving the majority of preventable claims.
Members also receive unlimited 360-degree support to answer questions, price-shop prescription drugs, explore care alternatives and reduce overall family healthcare expenses.
Real people. Real stories.
We’re making a difference - one story at a time.
I wanted access to the best-rated surgeon for my daughter who required a specialized procedure. Health Guardians swiftly identified the top nationwide surgeon and a well-renowned local specialist. I chose the out-of-state physician. With the help of an innovative cash pay solution, the Health Guardian team secured an appointment, waived the sizable deductible and copay. My daughter received the care she needed, and my company saved over $50,000 on the surgery.
Tony, BowTie Member
I needed an upper endoscopy procedure and was quoted $6,400. With the help of the Health Guardianship team and their partnership with ColonoscopyAssist, my procedure with my preferred location and provider was reduced to $1,800.
Susan, BowTie Member
My physician wanted me to have a common elective procedure at the hospital where they worked. My Health Guardian physician reached out directly to my specialist, who was unaware of the exorbitant price, and offered to change the procedure to a more convenient location while reducing costs.
Beth, BowTie Member
I met with my BowTie physician who reviewed my history of chronic care issues, including past imaging scans. The physician identified a potentially serious health concern that had not been followed up with me by my specialist. Within 48 hours, the BowTie physician developed an action plan, reviewed his recommendations with a specialist, and put a care plan in place for me. This saved weeks of waiting for the me and proactively addressed a potentially serious issue.
