About Crossover Health
Crossover Health is creating the future of health as it should be. A national, team-based medical group with a focus on wellbeing and prevention that extends beyond traditional sick care, the company delivers an entirely new model of healthcare—Primary Health—built on the foundation of trusted relationships, an interdisciplinary care team approach, and outcomes-based payment. Crossover’s Primary Health model integrates primary care, physical medicine, mental health, health coaching, care navigation and more, and delivers care in surround-sound—in-person, virtually and via asynchronous messaging. Together we are building a community of members that embraces healthcare as a proactive part of their lifestyle.
