CCHI is a statewide, non-partisan, non-profit coalition of organizational and individual members, representing well over 500,000 Coloradans. CCHI acts as a representative of the policy and advocacy priorities of our members at the legislature and in the community to influence and shape effective health care policy on behalf of consumers.
Mission: CCHI works to achieve barrier-free access to quality and affordable health care for all Coloradans.
Vision: CCHI will help create the best possible consumer-focused health care system in Colorado to cover the most people while taking advantage of the opportunities introduced by federal health care reform.
Strategy: CCHI brings a consumer voice to inform and influence health care policy in Colorado with expertise in private market insurance and understanding of the intersection between private market insurance, public health insurance and the uninsured.
Our Strategic Sweet Spot:
As a leader in private health care advocacy work, CCHI serves as a catalyst and coordinator for its member organizations, their staffs and foundation stakeholders. This role benefits CCHI’s target customer, in addition to policy makers and community leaders, as we are a unified voice for the consumer throughout the policy making process.
CCHI influences policy through legislation, rules, regulations and other strategies regarding private health insurance and access to quality, affordable care. CCHI represents the consumer as an equal stakeholder to inform the policy making process, from policy formulation to evaluation of effective implementation. In doing so, CCHI strategically engages with members and strengthens their capacity, building a credible narrative and basis for collaboration.
CCHI makes a statewide impact by means of our expertise in private insurance and understanding of the intersection with public health insurance and the uninsured. With this knowledge foundation, through the diversity and input of members, CCHI can clearly capture the big picture and deliver a unified consumer voice. With an engaged member base, CCHI operates pragmatically, effectively and substantively to make a systemic impact.
CCHI’s work will be finished when all Coloradans have access to quality, affordable health care. Getting the care you need, when you need it, is not too much to ask. Working together, we can move Colorado closer to that common-sense goal.
