Because we are a not-for-profit organization, SelectHealth can focus first and foremost on our members’ health. At SelectHealth, decisions about our members’ care are made by clinicians, not by clerks.

Expert care

Our organization has a special expertise in coordinating care for people with the complex health needs. Members are assigned a care manager who works with a team of healthcare professionals to see that the member’s care and support services are coordinated to achieve the best health outcomes.
