Better Service with Prime Technology.
Always striving to stay on the forefront of technology, Prime Health Services builds proprietary systems that allow us to customize our preferred provider networks and services in a variety of ways. We have always had a core philosophy of giving our clients access to the providers of their choice instead of forcing them into a pre-established PPO network. We have pioneered the way for real-time repricing, comprehensive inmate medical tracking, and opened a new window into claim metrics.
In everything we do, technology is weaved in. One of our core values is innovation; we encourage all team members to keep creative technological solutions top-of-mind in all projects, whether it is working closely with customers to discover, evaluate, or design solutions or for in-house efficiencies.

Join Our Team
From our IT developers building proprietary software to those under the client services umbrella, our employees are invaluable and contribute directly to the success of our health care provider members and clients alike. Prime offers an ideal environment for those who want to exercise their talents and ingenuity with a growing company and build a lasting career.
Prime Health Services was founded by Brian Sharp and three other PPO network experts in 2001. Originally a Tennessee-focused network run by a local hospital, Comp Plus turned into Prime Health Services, Inc. in 2001 and was spearheaded by Sharp, who has been the sole owner since 2007. Growing from a regional network of 12,000 to a national network with over 800,000 medical providers in network, Prime Health is a vast, strong preferred provider network with representation in all 50 states, from rural areas to metropolises. From the early days of being a strong regional PPO network, Prime has grown into so much more as it now serves the top insurance carriers, employers, governmental agencies, and corporations as their primary PPO network and medical cost containment solution in the United States.
For nearly twenty years, Prime Health Services has sought to control medical expenses while bringing value to our directly contracted medical providers. We have a vast network of medical providers consisting of family practice, physical therapy facilities, and specialty practitioners that provide quality healthcare services to our clients’ employees or customers. Our credentialed providers help people improve their health so they can focus not only on getting back to work but to life.
Prime Health Services has specialized in medical provider network development since its inception, starting in the Southeast region and quickly growing to a full national spectrum. Our dedicated team of network development specialists works hard to invite the practitioners that clients need in the areas that their customers live and work in. From coast-to-coast in the United States, 800,000 medical providers offer quality healthcare service to our clients’ employees, injured workers, and members.
When it comes to preferred provider networks, not all are created equal. We feel confident that we are achieving our mission and look forward to the history that has yet to be written.
