Policy Analysis

Every day, the California Association of Health Plans works with state policymakers on issues impacting health care in the Golden State. Lawmakers, regulators, public program officials and opinion leaders are some of the key constituencies with whom we engage. On a regular basis, the CAHP team engages leadership in the Governor’s Office, Department of Managed Health Care, Medi-Cal and the Department of Health Care Services, and the California Health Benefit Exchange (Covered California). Sometimes our work includes engaging leaders in Congress and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
