Reduced Costs

Up to 20% lower than best-in-market rates, available only through Northwell Direct plans


Customizable plans

Your plan is customized to include additional providers that meet your population’s health and travel needs.

Eliminate the insurance carrier

By removing the health insurance company from the middle, direct contracting creates a mutually beneficial relationship between your company and Northwell Direct.

Give your employees quality healthcare

Without an insurance company calling many of the shots, Northwell Health providers can do what they do best: provide the best care options for their patients.

Get full access to claims data

Traditional insurance companies generally make important data unavailable, leaving both employers and employees in the dark. Going direct-to-provider with Northwell Health means you own your firm’s claims data and have full access to it, allowing you to make targeted decisions that can enhance your employees’ health coverage while controlling company costs.

Join the growing trend

11% of self-funded large employers have adopted direct contracting arrangements with health systems.

These include Boeing, Intel, Walmart, Cisco and Lowes. And Northwell Direct has also signed high profile partnerships with Whole Foods and JetBlue.

Take advantage of Northwell Health’s extensive network

Your employees access the Northwell Health network in New York and the RWJBarnabas Health network in New Jersey, plus imaging centers, laboratories, pharmacies and more.
