  • Mission

    The Council for Affordable Health Coverage (CAHC) members believe that the cost of health coverage is too high and growing too fast. CAHC promotes policies that lower health costs through increased competition, informed consumers, and more choices to help promote access to affordable coverage.

  • Principles

    1. Promote competitive, efficient and transparent markets.

    2. Expand choices for consumers and employers.

    3. Support value-based delivery and payment reforms.

    4. Support incentives for wellness and prevention.

    5. Promote entitlement reforms that improve long-term program stability, strong safety nets, patient choice, efficiency and value.

  • What We Do

    We work on a number of products and services to meet the needs of our members including:

    Advocacy: We create strategies and employ tactics to pen bills, to modify regulations, or to prevent damaging laws from being enacted.

    Policy Development: We develop creative policy solutions, regulatory analyses, comment letters, and White Papers.

    Visibility and Education: We host briefings and summits on major policy issues to impact a nation dialogue.

    In the Loop Updates: We collect information and provide intelligence via weekly calls, email updates, and monthly meetings.”

  • CAHC Foundation

    The CAHC 501(c)(3) Foundation conducts research and examines the causes and impacts of medical cost growth, publishes papers, hosts conferences, and develops policy to address rising health costs.

  • CAHC Advisory Board

    The CAHC Advisory Board is comprised of national recognized experts who provide critical guidance and advice to CAHC members and the executive management team on health policy proposals and organizational issues.
