At FirstCare, we believe that all Texans and our communities should be healthy. To that end, we believe that health care should be accessible for all of our friends and neighbors.
FirstCare was founded in Amarillo in 1985, and we’re still locally owned. We put down roots and we’ve watched them grow. In fact, we’re owned by two Texas hospitals, Covenant Health and Hendrick Health System, and connected to the over 185,000 members in our communities. Today, our service area includes 143 counties, with local offices in Abilene, Amarillo and Lubbock.
Our deep commitment to our communities is fundamental to what we do. It helps us do a better job of connecting you with exceptional quality of care — from some of the best hospitals, doctors, and health services in our community.
Here at FirstCare Health Plans, we offer a friendly, approachable, and collaborative work environment with competitive salaries and excellent benefit offerings to our employees.
Born in Texas and headquartered in Austin, FirstCare is deeply committed to doing the right thing for the health of the Texas communities we serve. Every day is devoted to building stronger community relationships that help us bring people and quality health care together. When you join our team, you join a company that's leading the way in the health care industry.
We offer a comprehensive employee benefit package to our employees that is as exceptional as the health plans we offer our customers.
Here’s just a sampling of the full time employee benefits that FirstCare offers:
I have been working at FirstCare Health Plans full-time (More than 5 years)
Firstcare is a nice mid-size company that is in the process of transitioning into a better culture.
I have been with the company a few years and it seems like areas such as facilities and purchasing are still in the stone ages and not service friendly, do not go above and beyond. More of a gossip gallery then embracing the culture the company is in the process of transitioning to. Always a problem not willing to go outside the box.
Advice to Management
Make changes where needed to get the company where it is trying to go.
I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at FirstCare Health Plans.
I came on a temporary Employee. After months of working here, I was offered a full time position. I am not sure if my manager even knew my background, i think she hired me because she liked me.
