About PREFERRED Therapy Providers Inc.

Looking into the future...

PREFERRED Therapy Providers, Inc. was founded in 1992 by Jaxene Hillebert, a veteran in the healthcare industry. Ms. Hillebert saw a need to develop and connect a network of physical, occupational and speech therapists with health plans. Creating a single-source agreement business model resulted in developing a centrally managed contract procurement service bringing significant cost and time savings to health care providers. Due to Ms. Hillebert’s vision, PREFERRED has grown to over 1,200 physical, occupational and speech therapy clinics with benefit plans that collectively cover thousands of members throughout the United States.

Retiring as president in 2012, Ms. Hillebert remains a highly respected and visible professional in the health care industry and continues to hold a seat as a member of PREFERRED’s board of directors. In 2012, Steven Allred, PT was appointed as PREFERRED’s new president and continues to build on the work started by its founder.

PREFERRED has evolved into one of the largest healthcare contracts resource in the country and continues to develop strong relationships with new health plan payors on behalf of their network providers. Additionally, PREFERRED has developed an array of building resources along with the technology needed to help providers prosper in an ever-changing healthcare environment.
