Community Health Plan was established in 1992 by a network of community health centers across Washington State. They provide coverage for people in 33 counties.
Their members receive services from more than 1,000 primary care providers and 8,000 specialists at more than 250 primary care sites and over 80 hospitals. They are the fifth-largest health program in Washington.
Through their partnership with HireVeterans.com, they are looking to hire U.S. Veterans to their workforce.
Access for Today. Action for Tomorrow
At Community Health Plan, they make high-quality health care available to more people. Here’s how they do it.
Access: Through their affordable insurance programs, they provide people with access to high-quality health care delivered right in their communities, in ways that fit their cultures, values, and lifestyles.
Action: They are also busy changing the system. They bring together consumers, service providers, advocacy groups, and legislators to make health care more widely available and to create programs and systems that meet real-life needs.
That’s their strategy: access plus action. It’s unlike anything you’ll find from other health plans.
Built by the Community, for the Community
They are different from other health plans because they were created by the community health centers they partner with–front-line health care providers with community roots that stretch back more than 30 years. They’re the heart of the company. Through them, they have a closer connection to customers and a perspective that allows them to develop products and services that better meet their needs.
They believe everyone has a right to high-quality health care, so they help remove the barriers–financial, cultural, linguistic, geographic, and otherwise–that keep many people from getting medical attention.
Community Health Plan serves people from all walks of life, and they are a recognized leader in providing health care products and services for the under-insured including low-income families, diverse ethnic groups, recent immigrants, and people with disabilities.
From the heart of Puget Sound to the communities of Eastern Washington, they provide access to locally delivered treatment and services that incorporate a real understanding of the cultures and traditions of the people they serve.
Their work is distinguished by an uncommon commitment to the well-being of their customers and the communities they live in.
