San Diego's Self-Funded Healthcare

Healthy Partners is a pioneering healthcare insurance service offering direct contracting of services between physicians and San Diego County employers. The self-funded healthcare model will be offered to employers throughout San Diego County with as few as 100 employees.

Healthy Partners was launched by XiMED in partnership with Indianapolis-based Key Benefits Administrators (KBA). Founded in 1979, KBA has grown to be one of the largest third-party administrators in the country.

Healthy Partners was designed from the outset to enable physicians to provide proactive care for patients while giving employers previously unavailable data on their overall healthcare expenditures, all in an effort to improve outcomes and reduce healthcare costs for employers and their employees.
