Purchasing Opportunities

The genesis of the Employers’ Health Coalition is in purchasing. As employers we all struggle with the cost of healthcare. By working together, the employers who join together as EHC members have been able to negotiate excellent pricing across a wide variety of healthcare products.

The majority of our healthcare dollar is spent on physician and hospitals charges. Employers have been working together to negotiate excellent pricing for our members for the past 15 years. We offer the following networks to our member companies:

Fort Smith Area Networks:

  • EHC Choice Network includes 98% of area providers and all area hospitals.
  • EHC Premier includes Sparks Medical Foundation providers, independent providers and Sparks Regional Medical Centers and affiliated hospitals

Hot Springs Area Networks:

  • EHC of Hot Springs Network includes St. Joseph’s Mercy Medical Center, St. Joseph’s Mercy Medical Clinic providers as well as Health First and independent providers.
