***************** National Health Partners, Inc. (OTC:NHPR)

National Health Partners, Inc. currently offers 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. National Health Partners, Inc. 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. National Health Partners, Inc'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. National Health Partners, Inc. is headquartered in Horsham, Pennsylvania.

There are many reasons for increasing cost of health care, some reasons that cannot be controlled (because of inflation and nonmedical causes), some others that may possibly be controlled (because of the high cost of medications, procedures, laboratory fees hospitalization, etc.) and one main reason that can be definitely controlled (that because of noncompliance on the part of patients). In the healthcare industry, the patient is a commodity, a consumer and a victim. Theoretically the industry would not exist without patients. Therefore, if people can learn to live healthy lives and reduce the amount of diseases, the cost of health care will be curtailed and reduced, preventing human suffering.

(OTC:NHPR), a leading provider of unique discount healthcare membership programs, announced that it has entered into agreement with a major Hispanic marketing group for the sale of its CARExpress programs.
