How to handle a family wellness crisis
The family wellness Center is facing a crisis, according to the owners of a Phoenix-based company that runs a family-centered wellness center.
The Family Wellness Center, founded in 2009, says it has been able to meet its mission despite its growing need to expand its offerings.
Its founders, who are now working on a new wellness center in Texas, say they need to cut costs to make up for lost revenue, and to expand into other markets.
The new center, which will open in late 2017, is a result of a partnership with Phoenix-area health insurer UnitedHealth.
It will provide a free family wellness program for eligible adults, who will be asked to enroll in the program.
The center’s founders say they are struggling to find funding for the expanded program.
But they say they can afford to cut staff and trim expenses if they can’t find funding.
Their plan, which includes a new office, a cafe and an indoor fitness center, is the latest of several such ventures, which some have called a “fusion of the wellness industry.”
In addition to the Family Well, which was founded in New York City and is headquartered in New Jersey, there are several others in the Phoenix area.
Some of the new centers offer family-oriented wellness programs that offer health screenings, counseling and medical exams.
But others offer services including nutritional supplements and treatments for dental and cosmetic problems.
The Health Care Exchange, which is part of the Affordable Care Act, allows families to buy insurance through the marketplace.
Its expansion was a top priority for many Arizona families, especially as the state continues to grapple with a record-high number of uninsured.
“I think what is happening with this program is just another example of what we see across the country, where the ACA is not working,” said Lisa Miller, president of Arizona Family Wellbeing Center.
Miller says the health care exchange is a “very important piece of the puzzle,” but the program “doesn’t provide us the health we need to be healthy and active.”
The new Family Well has more than 500 employees, including two nurses and a doctor, and will be a new addition to a Phoenix area wellness center that currently has 300 employees.
The family wellness centers, which offer a wide variety of services, will offer a $25 monthly fee to eligible adults.
The fee will vary depending on the program, with some offering no fee at all.
Miller hopes the center will attract more families.
But the current cost of the program is too high, she said.
She said it’s important to keep in mind that families that sign up for a family health center can only pay for the service if the provider provides a “coverage package” that includes free services, such as a dental plan and mammograms.
Miller also said the center has received more than $1 million in donations from individuals and businesses in the area.
In January, UnitedHealth paid $400,000 to settle claims against the center and its parent company, United Health Care.
UnitedHealth did not admit wrongdoing.
