Innovations: Community Health Plans and COVID-19

By Dan Lemle

In the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis, the Alliance of Community Health Plans’ (ACHP) nonprofit, community-based health organizations are nimbly innovating to stem the spread of the virus. ACHP’s members’ unique efforts and flexible tools can aid in containing and treating COVID-19, helping secure the health and safety of their communities.

For example:

In addition to these innovations, ACHP member plans have pledged to waive cost-sharing for COVID-19 testing and will include it as a covered benefit, removing cost as a potential barrier to medically-appropriate testing.

As we continue to face ongoing health care challenges, ACHP members remain dedicated to preventing, containing and treating COVID-19. Committed to the communities they serve, our members see first-hand the impact on the ground.

In communities across the country, ACHP members will continue to lead efforts to address the very real challenges presented by this crisis: Efforts that not only benefit the health of their members, but of our nation as a whole.

Additional information on efforts of ACHP plans and their affiliated systems during this public health crisis is available here.
