The Family and Business Alliance (FABA) Group was cofounded by Robert Gomez and Monty Suther in 2017 to disrupt the traditional models of healthcare. Our model of a la carte healthcare is buying the products we want and need and getting rid of the stuff we don’t necessarily need. We use co-op models (healthcare sharing) that are so more inexpensive than insurance components, but serve the same purpose.
Wellness is what people want and utilize the most, so we put together a direct pay program for a grouping of providers, both traditional and non-traditional, that can be seen and pay nothing for the visit and minor activities. Concierge wellness and healthcare sharing provide a low-cost, high-benefit option compared to the traditional high-cost, low-benefit plans that most people and companies are familiar with. The FABA Group works with individuals, small businesses, churches, nonprofits, cities, counties and schools.
