Our Mission & Vision: Moving Healthcare Forward

We serve as the voice of self-funded employers who want more control over their healthcare costs, and who believe that affordable, high-quality care should be accessible to everyone.

We’ve been impacting healthcare for over 30 years by providing transparent, creative approaches to network and benefit plan design. We lower costs for our clients by helping them achieve High-Value Healthcare for their employees.

We’re a Cooperative

Cooperatives are organizations owned and run by their members to benefit their members. For The Alliance, this means helping our employers secure High-Value Healthcare – better care at a better price – for their employees and their families.

Cooperatives also produce shared profits. When The Alliance makes a profit, we return a portion back to each employer-member based on their level of participation. This is what we call our Cooperative Shareholder Benefit, or patronage dividend, paid to employers annually. Our employers also can serve on our Board of Directors (or vote to elect them).

Another invaluable benefit of joining a cooperative is the opportunity to share ideas and concerns with other like-minded employers, brokers, and group purchasers. Employer-members of The Alliance are drivers of healthcare innovation and improvement, paving the path toward High-Value Healthcare for all.

Mission

The Alliance’s mission is to move healthcare forward by controlling costs, improving quality, and engaging individuals in their health.

We don’t accept the status quo or healthcare “as usual” because we’ve found a better way. Behind the strength of our cooperative’s membership, we’re changing the way healthcare is bought and delivered using our four core drivers of High-Value Healthcare.

Vision

We’re working hard toward a future where: 

  • High-quality, affordable healthcare is reliably delivered to all patients.
  • People have confidence that their health plans enable them to take care of themselves and their families.
  • The Alliance employer-members thrive by joining together to control the trend of healthcare costs.
