About Us

Formed in 1988, Northern Buckeye Health Plan, NW Division of OHI believes that the combination of building partnerships with political subdivisions and delivering innovative and cutting-edge methods of containing health care costs is vital to our continued growth and development. The objective of the consortium remains the same after three decades of service; to provide competitive health benefits at affordable prices.

As a division of Optimal Health Initiatives, NBHP Members are Better Together when we maximize our employee dollars by partnering with peers to leverage greater purchasing power and political influence without losing local autonomy or local control.
