Making Health Care Better

The Alliance of Community Health Plans is a national leadership organization bringing together innovative health plans and provider groups that are among America’s best at delivering affordable, high-quality coverage and care. Our plans are shaping the future of health care - driving better health outcomes, building healthier communities and inspiring an entire industry to do better.

Payer-Provider Relationships

In The Health Care Blog, ACHP President and CEO Ceci Connolly explains how doctors and health plans drop their guards, align incentives and focus on the mutual goal of delivering the best possible care, patients win.


Transparent PBMs: A Unique Approach

ACHP plans are offering an innovative, alternative solution to controlling prescription drug costs for consumers. The transparent PBM model used by many ACHP member plans is a proven, fully-transparent method that passes savings to consumers. These PBM models exist under the current safe harbor framework and have a proven track record on reducing costs. These transparent models eliminate the perverse incentives in traditional PBM models in which drugs with higher list prices receive preferred treatment.


ACHP Expands Federal Advocacy Team

The Alliance of Community Health Plans (ACHP) has added four members to its Washington, DC-based Advocacy team, including: Vice President of External Affairs Tricia Brooks; Director of Legislative Affairs Tricia Barrentine Guay; Associate Director of External Affairs Matt DoBias; and Communications Manager Dan Lemle. The new additions will expand ACHP’s federal advocacy operation and help further develop and execute ACHP’s innovative and patient-centered advocacy agenda.
