Community Health Partners with SWFPA operates as a “messenger model” Physician Hospital Organization (PHO). Providers are given the option to choose what contracts they wish to participate in.
The PHO serves as the conduits of information. In this role, when a payor makes a contract offer to the PHO, the PHO serves as the “messenger” to transmit that offer to the PHO’s members for their individual consideration for participation.
The majority of the contracts with CHP are PPO (Preferred Provider Organization), but also may include POS (Point of Service) and HMO (Health Maintenance Organization) contracts.
Provider participation varies per individual contract agreement. Community Health Partners categorizes contracts into various categories.
