Meridian Health Partners


Dear Physician:

When we launched Meridian Health Partners, our clinically integrated network, we had a few simple goals in mind. We wanted Meridian Health Partners to be the vehicle that allows physicians like you an opportunity to align with other physicians to coordinate care, shape and influence clinical practice and prepare for new, incentive-based compensation programs. We are pleased to report that we are well on our way to meeting those goals. Navigating the challenges of an ever changing health care landscape requires a trusted partner.

We believe Meridian Health Partners allows you to maintain your independence while being part of a winning team, and here’s why:

  • As a physician-led network, Meridian Health Partners provides technical and administrative support for clinical data analysis and reporting for your practice.

  • Meridian created Aetna Whole Health℠ – Meridian Health, a co-branded product-based accountable care organization where participating physicians in Meridian Health Partners are tier 1 providers. This follows Meridian’s collaboration with Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey’s OMNIA product and AmeriHealth of New Jersey’s Advantage Plan, narrow networks where Meridian Health Partners members are tier 1 providers. Physicians have the potential to be incentivized for improving the quality of care while controlling costs. As the industry-wide trend of value-based contracts and narrow network products continues, Meridian Health Partners can represent you with other insurance carriers.

  • Meridian Health Partners offers an upside only, shared savings structure with opt-outs available for other potential arrangements at your discretion.

  • We listened to your concerns. As a result of your feedback, we recently made changes to Meridian Health Partners’ provider agreement, which now includes a greater flexibility for continued participation.

  • Your patients benefit from your participation in Meridian Health Partners by having access to high-quality care at lower out-of-pocket costs. Members who access tier 2 physicians will incur greater out-of-pocket costs. The care of your patients will be coordinated through you, our health coaches and case managers, enhancing their overall experience.

We believe that Meridian Health Partners is the future for collaboration with the medical community and health insurers. Are you ready to join a streamlined, integrated network of physicians while still having all of the independence and freedom of your current practice? Then Join Meridian Health Partners today!
