VAHP also collaborates with other health organizations to foster progressive partnerships that will help accomplish our mission.
We pursue constructive dialogue and joint efforts with provider organizations, health associations, employer groups, and state health and insurance agencies to promote discussion of current health policy issues.
Representation + Advocacy
VAHP works to develop and promote a legislative and regulatory agenda that advances the successful operation of health plans in the Commonwealth. We are actively involved in policy development and issues analysis during the General Assembly and throughout the year.
The Association issues position statements, educates legislators on issues and organizes involvement of the health plan community in the legislative process. The Association also facilitates political involvement through a political action committee (PAC) to support candidates who are committed to preserving quality, affordable health care.
