Have you found that access to affordable medical in the United States is an entitlement? Yet dependant upon a seemingly arbitrary matrix of things, and the government insurance packages which are available for the elderly, the permanently disabled, people who have failing kidneys, the actual impoverished and children from low-income individuals. But how poor must one be to be eligible varies from state to state and also from year to year. Workers at most of the large firms and many of hte small firms have been able to take advantage of group insurance plans negotiated by way of their employers. Although millions of people who are employed in low-paying service, retail or perhaps contracting jobs need to seek individual insurance plans, which may be unaffordable or maybe unavailable because of their healthcare histories. Others obtain insurance with insurance deductibles so high or insurance coverage limits so low that one bad crash or illness would lead them close to bankrupt. The need for affordable healthcare alternatives has never been greater.

National Health Partners, Inc. achieved positive earnings for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 compared to a loss of $522,542 for the same period in the previous year. Revenues for the 3rd quarter grew 12.3% over the same period prior year. The Company attributes the net earnings to the significant cost-cutting initiatives taken over the past couple of quarters which was continued in the 4th quarter of 2010.
