Contra Costa Health Plan
Contra Costa Health Plan was the first county-sponsored health plan in the nation to receive federal qualification and to offer Medicaid and began enrollment of Medi-Cal patients in 1973. CCHP became a model for managed care health plans nationwide. Today, the plan delivers services to county employees, small and large business groups, seniors, people with disabilities, children and low- income patients. Contra Costa Health Plan serves Rating Regions 5 (Contra Costa County) exclusively.
CCHP is celebrating 40 years of providing health care coverage for many populations of low income and vulnerable populations in addition to Medi-Cal and group insurance. We currently care for the County residents in the Low Income Health Plan (LIHP), many of whom will become eligible for Covered California and wish to offer them the opportunity to retain their same physician and medical home. CCHP offers 24/7 Advice Nurse assistance, as well as Case Management and Transition Care nurses to assist patients being discharged from hospitals to receive timely appointments with their doctors.
CCHP’s provider network includes 10 hospitals and approximately 5,000 doctors.
