PrimeCare O&P Network was founded in 1999 to benefit America’s independent Orthotics and Prosthetics practices. Since then we have added pedorthics, mastectomy and complex rehab to our service and educational lines.
We have facilitated more than 20 national managed care and workers’ comp contracts that we provide our member facilities access to. This access puts them on in-network status with these plans. Member providers make the decisions themselves as to which contracts they wish to participate in or opt out of.
In particular, since 2011, we have increasingly discovered the value to our providers of these contracts, given the upheavals the health care field has experienced and continues to be impacted by.
Our two annual scientific symposia, PrimeFare West held in Denver each year and PrimeFare East, held in Nashville, have attained national recognition as being among the “go-to” meetings for practitioners, providers and exhibitors. This is a result of the high quality of education, affordability and networking opportunities for attendees. And the chance for exhibitors to get maximum face-time with owners and practitioners on a regional level.
PrimeCare also manages the Oklahoma Association for Prosthetics and Orthotics annual meeting. As of 2014, the Colorado State Association annual meeting will be held in Denver in conjunction with PrimeFare West.
