Our national presence, focused network development and commitment to quality make HPO the best choice for out-of-network cost containment.
Irving, TX (Vocus) September 12, 2009
HealthSmart Payors Organization, LP (HPO), a national secondary preferred provider network and subsidiary of HealthSmart Holdings, Inc. (HealthSmart), has recently expanded its focus on reducing medical expenses and claim processing time by employing a strategic national network build-out program. Already one of the largest directly contracted secondary networks in the country, HPO has recently succeeded in nearly doubling its participation by integrating over 140,000 additional healthcare providers into its network offering. This substantial feat was accomplished through the efforts of HPO’s extremely dedicated network development team. Marci Conlin, Senior Vice President of Network Development says, “Our national presence, focused network development and commitment to quality make HPO the best choice for out-of-network cost containment.”
James M. Pennington, President says, “It is exciting to announce such a large expansion of our nationwide network, which now consists of over 277,000 directly contracted secondary providers practicing in over 476,000 locations. HPO can produce out-of-network discounts that are significantly above the national average. Our versatility allows a seamless transition of any existing healthcare plan and can coexist with other networks, PPOs, HMOs or non-managed care business.”
In conjunction with HPO, HealthSmart offers Partner Networks and Fee Negotiation Services to further increase the breadth of the secondary network options. By directly contracting with national and regional partner networks, HPO is able to optimize out-of-network cost savings in a provider friendly manner while creating comprehensive secondary network solutions that promote ease of administration. In this ever-changing industry, versatility and the ability to accommodate all client healthcare needs gives HPO a cutting edge advantage over the other available options.
