Review of the Status of Community Health Purchasing Alliances in Florida, Report No. 96-05, September 1996
Full report in PDF format

  • Community Health Purchasing Alliances (CHPAs) have helped increase access to affordable health care. However, approximately 2.7 million Floridians continue to go without health insurance, and additional policy options will be needed to significantly reduce this number.
  • The design of Florida's managed competition model limits the ability of CHPAs to compete effectively and provide affordable insurance to small businesses.
  • The current configuration of the CHPAs limits their ability to become self-supporting.
