First Choice Health Continues Launch of New, Collaborative Health Plans Throughout U.S.

Tuesday, October 4, 2022

Seattle - October 4, 2022 - First Choice Health, a forward-thinking alternative to legacy healthcare insurance models, has continued to launch innovative clinically-integrated networks throughout the United States, helping hospitals and health systems escape the gravity of traditional commercial plans and establish direct, quality-focused relationships with their members and the business community.

First Choice's latest offering - a partnership with St. Luke's Health Plan in Idaho - is another example of how these types of patient-centric networks expand reach and establish credibility in the business community. This follows similar collaborations with MultiCare Connected Care, Embright, and Eastside Health Network in Washington; St. Charles Health System and Praxis Health in Oregon; Midwest Network Alliance in Nebraska; and more.

First Choice Health has spent recent years developing a thoughtful approach to the delivery of health care through a direct-to-employer platform aligning the objectives of both the employer group and the health system. The collaboration between these groups makes a critical difference for every stakeholder throughout the U.S. seeking high-quality, affordable care.

"Since we began building customized health plans uniting providers, employers, and brokers, we've helped eliminate complexity, add transparency, and save dollars for consumers," said First Choice Health CEO and President Jaja Okigwe. "We've already seen this type of collaboration deliver long-term value for members across the country, and the latest partnership with St. Luke's Health Plan is just another example of how these types of plans can positively work."

First Choice Health's direct-contracting process is built from, and informed by, decades of experience serving clinicians and health systems, and their employees. The methods and processes that have emerged from this experience enable clinicians and health systems to effectively launch, execute, and manage a comprehensive, end-to-end healthcare solution for self-funded employers.
