At CCHP, our mission is to improve the health of our community by delivering high-quality, affordable healthcare through culturally competent and linguistically appropriate services.
Integrated Delivery System
We are part of an integrated delivery system that includes Chinese Hospital of San Francisco, its network of health clinics, and Jade Health Care Medical Group. It is an open system that also contracts with leading hospitals, medical groups and clinics to deliver our mission.
Our roots date back to late 1800s when the Chinese residents in San Francisco did not have access to services provided by San Francisco institutions. Since services like schools and hospitals were not open to the Chinese people, the community founded the Tung Wah Dispensary in 1899. Staffed by Christian missionaries and herbalists, the dispensary offered both Western and Eastern medicines that were familiar to the community.
In 1925, the first and only Chinese hospital in America opened after the 1906 earthquake destroyed the dispensary. After expanding and serving the community for over 90 years, Chinese Hospital was completely rebuilt in 2016. Chinese Hospital and its network of clinics now serve anyone who needs quality medical care in San Francisco and Daly City area. The not-for-profit Chinese Hospital continues to be guided by the original 15 founding service organizations.
CCHP is Established
In 1986, a group of community physicians helped establish CCHP to fill a need among small family-owned businesses. At the time, traditional insurance companies did not find small businesses profitable to insure. Soon after, CCHP added Medicare Advantage plans and coverage for individuals and families.
CCHP is licensed with the California Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) to offer commercial health plans and maintain a contract with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) to offer Medicare Advantage plans. Today, CCHP competes directly with major health insurance companies by offering a high-quality, right-sized alternative for health care coverage. CCHP has grown to over 23,000 members and is involved in administration of an addition of over 10,000 members in Medi-Cal, Medicare and commercial programs. (Membership data as of 2019.)
At CCHP, we offer plans focused on health, wellness and preventive services, balancing Western and Eastern remedies to individuals, families, employers of all sizes, and participate in Covered California marketplace. We also offer Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plans in San Francisco and San Mateo counties. For Senior Select Program (HMO SNP), our service area is San Francisco only.
Our Medicare Advantage plans are 4 Stars out of 5 Rated by CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) in 2021 and our marketplace plans are URAC accredited.
CCHP has been providing quality health plan coverage since 1986. Headquartered in San Francisco, CCHP’s service area extends south of The City to include San Mateo County.
