National Health Partners, Inc. (OTCBB:NHPR.OB)

Today's uninsured spend more for care-and are getting less-than those with insurance. However when the uninsured can't pay, health care providers change those costs to the people who ultimately can pay-those who have insurance policies. That causes much higher monthly premiums for those who buy the insurance, male or female, on the market, as well as staff who get insurance to cover for themselves and their loved ones. The need for affordable healthcare alternatives has never been greater.

National Health Partners, Inc. (National Health) (OTCBB:NHPR.OB) is a national healthcare savings organization that provides discount healthcare membership programs to uninsured and underinsured people through a national healthcare savings network called “CARExpress.” CARExpress is one of the largest networks of hospitals, doctors, dentists, pharmacists and other healthcare providers in the country and is comprised of over 1,000,000 medical professionals that belong to such PPOs as CareMark and Aetna. The company’s primary target customer group is the 47 million Americans who have no health insurance of any kind. The company’s secondary target customer group includes the millions of Americans who lack complete health insurance coverage. The company is headquartered in Horsham, Pennsylvania.

NHPR currently offer five standard CARExpress membership programs that provide benefits that range from prescription drug and vision care to comprehensive physician, hospital, vision, dental and other care.

* Comprehensive Care Program.
* Supplemental Care Program.
* Preferred Care / Senior Advantage Program.
* Dental & Vision Care Program.
* Prescription & Vision Care Program.

Recently, NHPR achieved positive earnings for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 compared to a loss of $522,542 for the same period last year. Revenues for the 3rd quarter grew 12.3% over the same period last year. The Company attributes the net earnings to the significant cost-cutting initiatives taken over the past couple of quarters and which is continuing in the 4th quarter.

David M. Daniels, President and Chief Executive Officer of NHPR , stated: “I am thrilled to announce that we have finally achieved profitability. Due to the fact that our limited medical provider unexpectedly decided to exit the marketplace, we were unable to add any new CARExpress Plus limited medical sales during the 3rd quarter. Yet, despite this temporary setback, we were still able to substantially increase our revenue and reach profitability which is a testament to the underlying strength we have with our core CARExpress health discount programs. Although we achieved positive results in revenues and earnings, we anticipate much better results in 2011.”
