ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 30, 2019--

Imagine Health, a healthcare services company for self-insured employers, announced today a new partnership with Orlando Health to bring a new health plan to employers and employees in Central Florida. A powerful alternative to traditional PPO plans, the plan will lower healthcare costs by giving members access to Orlando Health’s world-class medical professionals at a fair and reasonable price.

We are transforming healthcare through collaboration between health systems and national and local employers in the communities they serve,” said Chris Cigarran, CEO at Imagine Health. “This is the type of direct connection we’ve established with Orlando Health, allowing us to offer employers in Central Florida a new kind of health plan. By pairing a distinguished health system with a cost-containment solution that benefits both local businesses and the employees who depend on them for health coverage, we’re empowering employers to take back control of their healthcare costs.”
