About Premier Health Plan

Our members are at the center because they are our patients too.

Premier Health Plan is a new health plan led by the hospitals and doctors that our community already knows and trusts. It is a different kind of plan created around you . Our approach involves more than just taking care of you when you are sick. Our health plan, created by doctors, focuses on helping you stay healthy.

Premier Health is committed to building healthier communities in southwestern Ohio. By linking Premier’s history of service to our region with the new Premier Health Plan, we create a more coordinated, simple healthcare experience for you.

Premier Health Plan provides flexible, cost-effective healthcare coverage. As trusted advisors, our physician leaders own their quality standards and hold themselves accountable to evidence-based medicine. This commitment to low variation and reliability lowers costs and improves quality.
