The discounted prices paid by NHPR’s members typically range from 20% to 50% off providers’ usual and customary fees.

National Health Partners' CARExpress membership programs are not insurance. There is no undertaking by National Health Partners to pay a portion of any fee for services or prescriptions purchased using NHPR’s CARExpress membership cards. Rather, NHPR’s CARExpress membership programs provide consumers with access to healthcare providers who, through their affiliations with PPO's, have agreed in advance to honor NHPR’s CARExpress membership cards and accept the discounted fees set by the PPO's. Our CARExpress membership programs require members to pay the provider at the time of service, thereby eliminating the need to file any insurance claims. CARExpress members simply present their CARExpress membership card to the participating provider at the time of the service to receive the discounted price.
