California Association of Health Plans

Board Of Directors

The California Association of Health Plans' Board of Directors includes operating leaders from a wide range of California health plans and serve a diverse membership base reflecting the diversity of California's health care needs. Our board includes representatives from large national health plans that offer products and services in virtually all commercial employer group and individual markets as well as in public programs such as Medicare, Medi-Cal and Healthy Families. Other plans focus on one or more counties in California and tend to specialize in public programs and working with county health systems and clinics.

Our board shares a common drive to use the tools of managed care to advance higher quality and lower cost healthcare leading to better health in California.
