What They Do

We asked Vera Whole Health to explain what they do. Here is what they had to say.

Vera contracts directly with employers to build and operate onsite medical clinics for their employees.  Employers pay a monthly fee per member so that everyone gets unlimited, cost-free access to the clinic, which includes doctors, nurses and health coaches.
