Public Affairs

AHIP’s Public Affairs team serves the health insurance community’s voice on a daily basis to key audiences and the informed public. As the front-line proponent and defender of the industry, our spokespeople are trusted, go-to sources for reporters, bloggers, columnists, and editorialists to obtain the health plan perspective in real time. Through a cutting-edge digital and social media program and grassroots activation, AHIP champions the innovative work of health plans and highlights their role in improving quality and reducing health care costs.

Membership at AHIP offers companies the opportunity to be part of this operation. Member organizations also benefit from gaining access to a wealth of resources and information that bolsters their communications and public affairs operations. Additionally, Public Affairs staff is always available to our members to provide guidance and expertise on specific issues.
