Who We Are
For more than three decades, the Massachusetts Association of Health Plans (MAHP) has been the leading voice for health plans in Massachusetts. We are a non-profit organization committed to promoting high-quality, affordable, and equitable health care. MAHP represents 14 health plans and 2 behavioral health organizations, which provide health care coverage to nearly 3 million Massachusetts residents. MAHP is a 501(c)(4) organization.
MAHP’s mission is to promote high-quality, affordable, and equitable health care in Massachusetts through advocacy, education and health policy research. All MAHP members are dedicated to making health care affordable and improving the health of all citizens in the Commonwealth.
MAHP develops and promotes a legislative and regulatory agenda focused on making health care affordable and equitable for employers and consumers. The Association actively participates in the development of health care policy, and works to educate legislators and policy makers about health issues that affect the cost and quality of health care in Massachusetts.
MAHP generates a number of publications to educate and inform the public on issues affecting the cost and quality of health care in Massachusetts. For publications and reports, click on the News & Events tab. Members receive several other communications that can be found through the member log-in section.
MAHP works with other health organizations to foster progressive partnerships that will help make health care more affordable and improve the quality of care for all residents. We pursue constructive dialogue and joint efforts with providers, government officials, consumers, other health organizations and the business community to promote discussion of current health policy issues.
