Where Your CHP Dollar Goes

Capital Health Plan tries to keep coverage affordable and focused on hospital, physician, drug and other health care services. Through the first seven months of 2010, administrative costs represent less than 4% of our total revenues, one of the lowest levels in the nation. CHP overhead has been below 5% of revenues for the past 20 years. This means that more of your dollar goes directly toward providing the health care services you need.

Capital Health Plan Achieves Low Overhead — Again!

Note: This article is over 60 days old, and may contain information that is out of date, or has been superseded by newer information.

For the 20th year in a row, CHP’s administrative costs are less than 5% of its revenues. This industry-leading efficiency contributes to membership affordability.

Capital Health Plan’s mission is to help Tallahassee-area residents receive comprehensive, affordable health care services. Keeping administrative overhead low has always been an important objective. Dollars spent on management, marketing, claims processing, etc., are dollars that aren’t available for your health care needs. That’s why, as CHP tries to stretch the health-care dollar to cover as much as possible, we minimize the portion of that dollar spent on non-clinical services.

Nationally, Capital Health Plan’s administrative costs are among the lowest reported by health plans. We achieve that result in several ways: our staff’s dedicated efforts, investments in cost-saving technology, and a philosophical commitment to maximize both value and affordability of the health services and coverage for our CHP members.
