Two pri­ma­ry care ri­vals merged in a bet that com­bin­ing forces will help them grow in the mas­sive em­ploy­er-spon­sored health­care mar­ket, the com­pa­nies said on Thurs­day.

Marathon Health and Ever­side Health are both pri­ma­ry care com­pa­nies that work with em­ploy­ers and unions to pro­vide on-site, near-site or re­mote care ser­vices, in­clud­ing be­hav­ioral health and mus­cu­loskele­tal, to em­ploy­ees and de­pen­dents. The two providers are paid based on the qual­i­ty of care they de­liv­er, rather than the num­ber of vis­its they fa­cil­i­tate.
