There, they can visit outstanding doctors and other providers. In addition to medical services, they can receive their medications, X-rays and lab work at one location with no co-pay.

Do co-pays and deductibles change?

Can members visit the doctor of their choice?

Yes. Partnership Health Centers allow employers and health plan sponsors access to a customized provider network as large as any available. Moreover, we have a unique and powerful way to recruit providers who will not participate in any network. The Partnership Health Centers program is based on the premise that encouraging access to healthcare is wise not only for health purposes, but financially as well. Of course, a doctor can call us to join at any time.

Is Partnership Health Centers an insurance company?

No. This is one of the reasons why Partnership Health Centers can more easily save employers and employees healthcare dollars. It is a health benefits company managing customized health benefit programs for public and private sector employers. Although it is not an insurance company, we offer plan sponsors and their employees a turnkey and complete program for healthcare coupled with insurance protection from a rated carrier.

We are unique in the industry because we have no economic conflicts of interest in terms of where healthcare dollars go-no commissions, referral fees, supply markups or capitation charges. That way, there are no hidden incentives to cut corners or do anything other than promote best-practice medicine for members.
