Health Plans & the Contracting Team

Northeast PHO (NEPHO) providers participate in various health plans either through NEPHO’s affiliation with Lahey Clinical Performance Network (LCPN) and Beth Israel Lahey Health Performance Network (BILHPN) or directly through NEPHO. Some providers also participate in a Medicare ACO program through Lahey Clinical Performance Accountable Care Organization (LCP-ACO).
