In 2000, SHPS was purchased by Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe, a private equity firm which focuses on information and business services, healthcare and communications.[2] In 2001, SHPS acquired CareWise, Inc., a provider of care management services to complement existing healthcare services offerings.[3] In 2003, SHPS acquired eBenX, Inc., a human resource and benefits administrator.[4] In 2004, SHPS acquired National Health Services, Inc. and Landacorp, Inc., two care management providers.[5] In 2006, SHPS introduced its enhanced health management delivery model. In 2007, SHPS introduced a health risk engine to help employers strategically manage the clinical risk in their employee population. Also, in 2007, SHPS' Landacorp division released its CareRadius product suite, intended to simplify complex medical management processes and enable health plans to simplify work flow, improve health outcomes, and lower costs.

In 2012 SHPS sold its Human Resource Solutions subsidiary, which administers FSAs, to ADP.[6] It also sold its LandaCorp subsidiary. It retains ownership of the Carewise Health component.[7][8]
