Bastion Health, the first and most comprehensive men’s specialty digital clinic, aims to bridge the gap in male healthcare by providing accessible, personalized, and preventative care remotely. Most men’s health requirements are unaddressed due to limited access, confidentiality, and convenience. Neglected healthcare leads to severe health conditions, reduced workforce productivity, and increased employer healthcare costs. Bastion Health provides end-to-end coverage for preventative care, at-home testing, virtual specialty care, treatment, and care navigation across various areas like Prostate, Reproductive, Sexual and Hormonal Health.

Bastion Health operates a B2B value-based model, offering specialized healthcare services to employers and health plans directly. The utilization-based, claims-based model, integrated Electronic Medical Record, and competitive pricing result in cost savings for employers by improving worker health and productivity.

Unlike competitors, Bastion Health offers a comprehensive men’s health approach, covering a wider range of conditions along with a proven engagement strategy.
