Hint Connect is a simple, better-quality employee healthcare solution that not only means a healthy and productive workforce, but also a healthy bottom line for your business."
The team at Nextera Healthcare sincerely appreciates all the work the Hint Connect team continues to do to spread the word that Direct Primary Care is the best primary care solution for employers. Having Hint Connect as a trusted partner with the technical expertise that allows DPC practices across the US to connect and serve employers is critical to the continued growth of DPC."
I’m very excited to partner with Hint Connect to bring strong primary care to employees, including meeting demand in underserved markets where there is currently no strong, independent primary care offering."
Ever since I saw the DPC model I realized what a fresh new and valuable approach this would be for employers. It lowers the barriers to healthcare and makes it affordable. I am happy to say that my clinic has done this for employers with reproducible results and Hint Connect is in a position to access many DPC clinics and design a plan that meets the requirements of large employers."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I join?
Schedule a chat with the Hint Connect team to see if Hint Connect is the right fit for you.
The Hint Connect team will work with you to finalize your non-exclusive Clinician Participation Agreement and collect onboarding data to curate your clinician profile and activate your affiliation on Hint Core.
Do DPCs have to pay to participate?
No! Hint Connect charges employers a flat PMPM for administrative services on top of the DPC fee. We do not take payment from DPCs or take a “cut” of the DPC fee.
Am I allowed to negotiate language in the Hint Connect Contract?
We realize that our contract doesn’t fit every practice perfectly. We are open to discussing areas where you have questions and making changes where we mutually agree make sense. We welcome your feedback because we want to ensure this arrangement works for you.
Do I need to submit reporting or member information?
We ask all clinicians to verify that patients have started the doctor-patient relationship with a visit. We may ask for more detailed encounter reporting periodically (for example: When and how often are members engaged? What virtual touchpoints have occurred?) We will work with you to make getting this data as pain free as possible.
