Centivo was founded to create positive change within the inefficient healthcare system, with the goals of reducing costs and delivering ongoing sustainability to employers while offering affordable, high-quality healthcare to the millions of Americans who struggle to pay their healthcare bills.
Centivo is a new type of health plan administrator that allows self-funded employers and clinicians to join forces and deliver high quality, affordable healthcare to their employees. An alternative to traditional insurance carriers or third-party administrators, Centivo offers a coordinated benefits platform with the technology, network, claims processing, customer support, and population health management to fully administer health benefits for all or a portion of an employee population.
The Centivo model emphasizes the partnership between individuals and their primary care team as the proper model to coordinate healthcare needs. Centivo's clinical partners are dedicated to controlling costs and helping members navigate the healthcare system, aided by personalized patient/doctor matching tools. Members are rewarded for working with their primary care team and choosing high-value care, and are supported through a user-friendly app and their concierge. Employers get an ally that diligently roots out waste and is accountable to performance.
