CAREERS: DIRECT CARE PHYSICIAN

R-Health, a leader in Direct Care, is seeking a talented, passionate Family Medicine or Internal Medicine physician to join our expanding network of DPC practices in New Jersey.

R-Health has been awarded a contract to roll out a Direct Care for anyone enrolled in New Jersey’s State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) or School Employees’ Health Benefits Program (SEHBP) in what NJBiz calls, “the largest [DPC] program in the country…”

R-Health providers are liberated from the bureaucratic headaches and cost burden of fee-for-service (FFS) insurance billing.  As a result, our physicians have the ability to form lasting relationships with patients, receive better compensation and have a better work/life balance than most Primary Care physicians. R-Health New Jersey physicians have a maximum 1,000 patient panel.  There are no co-pays, deductibles, insurance claims or collection headaches – just great patient-physician relationships supported by state-of-the-art care collaboration and technology.
