Welcome to Health Plan Alliance 

Working together, health plans, hospitals and physicians can improve their operational and financial performance, medical management and market position.  Members of the Health Plan Alliance do just that by leveraging a broader knowledge base, disseminating specific performance improvement methods and participating in a collective purchasing program.

As provider-sponsored and independent health plans, Alliance members share much in common.  And because they don't directly compete against one another, they openly discuss challenges and strategies and gain insights through sharing best practices.  To learn more about the value of membership, click here.
