About Pair Team

Pair Team is on a mission to improve the wellbeing of underserved communities by connecting them to high-quality care.

Pair Team cares for the highest-need Medicaid recipients through a community-led model. We build local partnerships with shelters, food pantries, and other community-based organizations to turn them into a site of care. As a support system for the community, we provide wraparound clinical services, up-skill CBO staff to become Community Health Workers, and utilize our proprietary data-driven technology platform, Arc, for care coordination. Through Medicaid MCOs, we provide healthcare for hard-to-reach, high-need individuals, while sharing healthcare dollars with community groups to expand their social support programs.

Our Values

  • Trust: We consistently strive to earn the trust of our patients, our clinic partners, and our teammates.
  • Growth: We grow together – as a company and as individuals.
  • Accountability: We act like owners and take pride in our work.
  • Act beyond yourself: Our vision and impact goes beyond ourselves and so must our actions.
