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

National Health Partners, Inc., a leading provider of unique discount healthcare membership programs, recently announced that NHPR has 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. NHPR 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.

“I am thrilled to announce that we have finally achieved profitability,” stated David M. Daniels, President and Chief Executive Officer of NHPR. “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 going forward into 2011.”

We all know that the uninsured pay more for care-and have less-than those with insurance. However when the uninsured can not pay, health care providers adjust those costs to the who can pay-those which passes the buck to those who have insurance policy. This then leads to higher costs for those who buy the insurance on the particular market, as well as individuals who get insurance coverage for themselves and their own families through their job. The need for affordable healthcare alternatives has never been greater.

The access to affordable healthcare in the United States has become a luxury for some, althought still subject to a seemingly arbitrary matrix of things. Government insurance products are available for the elderly, the permanently disabled, children from low-incomes, and those with failing kidneys. But how poor do you have to be to be eligible actually varies from state to state and also from year to year.

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. NHPR’s primary target customer group is the 47 million Americans who have no health insurance of any kind. NHPR’s secondary target customer group includes the millions of Americans who lack complete health insurance coverage. NHPR is headquartered in Horsham, Pennsylvania.
