Introduction to Health Partners

In the early 90's, Northeast Georgia Medical Center, local physicians and regional hospitals began to discuss ways to develop a health partnership. The intent was to create an environment that would assure access to the highest quality, most cost effective health care in Northeast Georgia. Shortly thereafter, a preferred provider organization (PPO) was created called Northeast Georgia Health Partners (NGHP). NGHP offers a fresh perspective to the challenges of rising costs and difficulties in the delivery of healthcare services.

NGHP is currently one of the most comprehensive PPO networks available in the region. With over 500 physicians, 35 ancillary providers, and 8 hospitals, NGHP remains a popular choice for employers throughout Northeast Georgia. NGHP is also ideal for employers with multiple locations throughout the State of Georgia. Through our affiliate network, SuperMed Network (formerly known as 1st Medical Network), employers have access to over 10,000 physicians and more than 150 hospitals in Georgia.

NGHP is committed to excellence.  As a result, the network achieved certification by the National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA), which reviews PPO network's credentialing processes to ensure that they are conducting business in a manner consistent with national quality standards.  In 2003, NGHP ranked among the Top 20 PPO networks in Georgia by Market Share.

Other NGHP products and services include:

  • Consumer-driven health options (HSA/HRA/Flex spending, etc.)
  • Benefit Plan Analysis
  • Educational Seminars
  • Disease Management
  • Pharmacy Benefit Management
  • Health & Wellness Programs
Health Partners (HP) is an option for self-insured employers. To achieve cost savings, employers can partner directly with the NGHP network, virtually eliminating the "middle-man".  NGHP also has preferred relationships with third party administrators and reinsurance carriers to provide turn-key products and services for self-insured employers.
