PLYMOUTH, Minn., Feb. 9, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Fulcrum Health, Inc., the leading non-profit physical medicine benefit management organization, announced today that it has reached an agreement to assume the provider contracting and credentialing business previously operated by Health Services Management (HSM).
