HC21 promotes…
  • Value Based Purchasing- Purchasing health benefits while considering a combination of price, service, and quality.
  • Performance Measurement- Measuring the performance of health care and health benefit suppliers such as health plans, hospitals, physicians and brokers.

  • Improve the health system (health plans, hospitals, providers)

In adherence to our mission statement, we are a…
