Paradigm Health Plans' Mission: 
Building the Benefit of a Better Life

With relentless passion, we are committed to bettering the lives of our Members, our Clients, our Employees and our Communities in their workplaces and their homes.

In 2007, Dennis LaBrasca, Chief Executive Officer for Paradigm Health Plans, set out to bring humanity back to the delivery of health benefits when he noticed a lack of compassion in the healthcare system. Simply put, the “human touch” was missing. We’ve all watched countless people work hard to obtain health benefits, only to struggle to get the care they need, and so we set out to build a new healthcare delivery system that empowers members through proactive plan outreach. We reject one-size-fits-all strategies that value profits over people. Instead, we tirelessly build a new healthcare delivery system that promises advocacy, access, education and transparency for the best health outcomes.

Today, Paradigm Health Plans continues to deliver maximum value with best-in-class service through the integration of our Member 360 Program with our flexible health plan designs.

Paradigm Health Plans unique approach to care has propelled our company into rapid growth. We currently have five corporate offices in New Hampshire, New York, Boston, Chicago and Dallas, with a nationwide footprint. Our committed employees are located across the US to share the Paradigm Health Plans message that has the power to transform the workplace.

Our plans include offering self-insured, level-funded and administrative only health services to small, mid-size and large employers. Our rapidly expanding client base represents workplaces throughout the nation.

We help you manage the entirety of your employees’ health needs by providing access to pharmacy and disease management programs, national provider networks, third-party administrative services and our proprietary health management program—Lifestyle-for-Life®. For the last two years, Paradigm Health Plans has retained more than 95% of our clients and offered unparalleled renewal rates with less than a 3% increase.

At Paradigm Health Plans, we are not just committed to building our business; 
we are committed to building better lives. We recognize both our responsibility 
to the world and our revolutionary power to improve it.
