New Jersey Direct Primary Care Program

The New Jersey State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) and School Employees’ Health Benefits Program (SEHBP) now cover 100% of the cost for employees and their dependents to join a Paladina Health or R-Health doctor’s office. This is available as part of the Horizon and Aetna* plans and does not require any changes to your health insurance. Choose a Direct Primary Care doctor and get unlimited access to a personal family doctor with no co-pays, when and where it’s convenient for you.

This Direct Primary Care program was created and led by the public-sector labor unions that fought to add this fabulous add-on feature to your state and school health benefits, bringing you and your family better healthcare at lower costs.

Simply put, Direct Primary Care allows you to save money while receiving a more patient-focused relationship with a doctor who is caring and always there for you.
