What is CAHC?

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.

CAHC Advisory Board

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

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.
