Hi KARISHMA315

we can use since in two ways 1. time marker 2. to give some reasoning ( like because)

Example:
1. since 1947 , India have developed substantially ---present perfect
2. I will not ride the bike , since i have serious bone injuries---reasoning.

1. When using present perfect, to denote the time we use since.

2. since is also used to mean "for the reason that" or "because"

so here - health system started offering visits BECAUSE/SINCE it negotiated payments from insurers.

3. since is also used to mean "ago". that is long ago or say long since.

Hope the meaning is clear.
