WE ARE EA HEALTH

WE ARE
EA HEALTH

EA Health was founded in San Diego in 1992 to address the challenges faced by hospital emergency departments in maintaining participation in specialty call panels. After two decades of providing our innovative call compensation solutions nationwide, EA expanded to offer revenue cycle management services to emergency medicine providers, multi-specialty medical groups, private practice physicians, and telemedicine providers. Our offerings now include a comprehensive array of provider compensation and reimbursement solutions complemented by our advanced health information technology.

At EA Health, we believe everyone should have access to high-quality healthcare. Expanding that access starts with fair and timely compensation of high-quality providers. When providers are paid fairly, they’re empowered to care for more patients. At EA Health, we’re improving healthcare by empowering providers.
