About WellSpan Population Health Services
WellSpan's third party administrative services provides claims processing and payment, medical and pharmacy management and risk mitigation strategies. You will benefit from our medical and processing expertise combined with a coordinated approach to network access, costs controls and claims payment.
1992: WellSpan Population Health Services, formerly known as York Health Plan, formed a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) as an avenue for employers, doctors, and hospital administrators to address the healthcare concerns facing the communities they served. For the next few years, York Health Plan’s PPO continued to grow, moving into Adams and Franklin counties.
1997: Our name changed from York Health Plan to SOUTH CENTRAL Preferred (SCP)to better describe our geographic expansion. Shortly thereafter, many of our self-insured PPO clients expressed a desire to have us provide the network as well as Third Party Administrator (TPA) services. SCP made the decision to offer TPA services for medical, dental, and vision plans.
2002: SCP, in conjunction with other regional PPO provider networks, launched Pennsylvania's Preferred Health Networks (PPHN). These networks have joined together under a single logo to offer a seamless, broad network of physicians, hospitals, and ancillary providers to employers and TPAs across a nine-county region.
2007: Significant expansion in products to include comprehensive worksite wellness services and Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
July, 2017: We changed our TPA name from SCP to WellSpan Population Health Services. Our new name better reflects the proactive identification of health risks, care coordination and cost controls implemented to bend the health care cost curve. SCP name continues to be offered as our product name for our broad PPO network within our seven-county service area.
Today, our clients realize the value of care coordination and administrative simplification. As a result, our clients have seen improved claims turnaround time, greater member satisfaction and enhanced value.
