Bringing better care into daily life
Color’s Essential Care Program makes prevention and taking action convenient and cost-effective for everyone. The program provides access to testing and screening for high-burden diseases, combined with clinical consults and personalized health evaluations — all from the comfort of home, at the worksite, or wherever is most convenient. Once results are delivered, Color’s experienced team of healthcare providers and care navigation specialists ensure each and every person gets the full care and attention they deserve, ensuring specific care plan goals are met.
No long wait times, no going from one office to the next.
It’s healthcare the way it should be.
Here is the Essential Care difference:
It can take weeks to get a traditional lab appointment and even longer for a doctor’s appointment. Essential Care participants get results in 2-3 days, and meet with a healthcare provider to discuss those results within 24 hours.
Essential Care Kits can be used at home. No need to run across town for a doctor’s appointment or visit a lab.
Participants get information that they can act on immediately plus help figuring out next steps. Essential Care screens for a wide variety of conditions, from diabetes to cancer.
It doesn’t stop with a test.
Participants connect with a healthcare provider, who helps with understanding the results and recommends any necessary follow up care. Care Navigators help execute on those steps.
For eligible participants, we can support them with enrolling in available care management programs — for diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, behavioral health needs, and more. Color offers these programs directly, or can provide warm handoffs to other benefits platforms.
Coverage for what’s important
Essential Care covers the most important health components of a primary care visit, all while taking less time and incurring less cost than traditional care workflows.

Essential Care for Enterprises:
A simpler model to address high-burden conditions
Eligible employees create a Color account and enroll to claim an Essential Care Kit.
Kits can be sent anywhere convenient for the participant.
02Assessment and screening
Initial screenings are completed through a small finger prick and a blood pressure reading; results are returned digitally.
Support (e.g. videos and visual guides) is provided to make sure sample collection is done properly.
03Results and follow-up
Results are released and employees are prompted to schedule an on-demand visit with a clinician. Before the appointment they complete a brief online comprehensive health history assessment. A clinician answers any questions and routes to relevant follow-up care.
04Ongoing care needs
Participants are handed off to appropriate benefit programs or Color Care Management. Care navigation services are provided to help support taking the next step.
Color provides results to employees’ providers and aggregate results to Benefits administrators.
