JeffCare, Jefferson's Physician Hospital Organization (PHO), is focused on helping physician practices in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware succeed and thrive in an era of healthcare reform. The more than 1,100 providers currently participating with JeffCare have benefited from the various services offered by a dedicated team of professionals who support member practices.

Core Services

The PHO offers messenger model managed care contracting with more than 20 payers and provides delegated credentialing and plan enrollment services so that providers avoid requisite paperwork and credentialing visits with each plan.

Membership allows access to JeffCare's secure web portal, which contains important updates and policies from the managed care plans and JeffCare provider directories, as well as educational resources for providers and office staff.

Additional Services

  • Payer liaison services
  • Access to group purchasing contracts, resulting in savings for practices
  • Support in the application process for Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and Patient-Centered Specialty Practice (PCSP)
  • Options in electronic health record and population health management technologies at discounted cost
  • Training and education programs for physicians and staff (e.g., ICD-10, billing compliance)

JeffCare physician members are included as providers in JeffPlus, Jefferson's employee benefit plan offered to the more than 35,000 employees and their families within the Jefferson Health System. Through the design of this employee health plan, Jefferson employees are encouraged to receive their care from JeffPlus providers.
