America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) has added four new health insurance providers to its membership.

The new additions include CalOptima, CareOregon, Health Plan of San Joaquin, and Priority Health. Combined, the four organizations will serve more than 2 million health care consumers, AHIP said.

“Each of these insurance providers is committed to fighting for lower prices for patients and consumers, and to helping people get healthier faster and stay healthier longer,” said Matt Eyles, president and CEO of AHIP.

“We are excited to work with them to improve American health care, so that everyone has affordable coverage, access to high-quality care, and control over their health care choices.”

CalOptima is a public, community-based health plan that serves low-income residents in Orange County, California. It has enrollees in four programs: Medicaid, Medicare-Medicaid Plan, Medicare Advantage Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan, and Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly.

CareOregon is a nonprofit insurance provider serving individuals from low-income households across the state of Oregon. It serves Medicaid, Medicare Advantage, and CHIP enrollees.

Health Plan of San Joaquin is a public, not-for-profit, managed care insurance provider that serves Medi-Cal enrollees in California’s San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties.

Priority Health is a nonprofit insurance provider that serves Michigan consumers through employer provided coverage, Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplement, Medicaid, and individual plans.
