I’m excited to introduce the addition of Mandi Pershall to the Core Healthcare team. Mandi is our Administrative Assistant and will be helping with member services, needs submissions, etc. Now that we have two Mandy(i)s, we know it could get confusing, so just look for that “i” or “y” at the end of the name. Communication from Mandi Purshall will be coming from the info@healthcorecare.com email address, while emails from me (Mandy Canon) will continue to come from the mandy@healthcorecare.com email address.

Jason, Nathan, and I have been busy meeting with independent providers across the state. We will be adding new providers to the Helena market and an additional mental health provider to assist our rural members by providing telehealth services. Updates to providers’ lists will be sent out soon. We are honored by the continued interest from independent providers across the state in joining the Core Healthcare co-ops and are committed to vetting and assuring their visions for member care coincide with ours. We truly believe in bringing healthcare back as a service.

We have had a lot of interest from alternative medicine providers in most of our markets, and while we aren’t able to fit them into our co-op model, we would love to be able to advertise their services to our members. We are currently developing our “Preferred Partners” program which will include chiropractic care, massage therapy, acupuncture, etc. The options are limitless. In most cases, these providers will be offering their services at a discounted rate to our members. If you have someone you’d love to see added to this list, feel free to give them my email address. If you are a small business owner and would like to add products/services, please reach out.

Wishing you all the best in March,
