What and Who is CTAHP?

The Connecticut Association of Health Plans(CTAHP) was created in 1987 when the concept of managed care was new in Connecticut and managed care covered less than 7% (or approximately 200,000) of the state’s almost three million residents. At the end of 1995, more than 30% or approximately 955,300 persons were enrolled in Connecticut’s HMOs. Recent estimates indicate well over one million individuals are now covered by managed care organizations. The health plans that belong to CTAHP share the philosophy that an emphasis on preventive care and a coordinated approach to health care results in healthier members and better health outcomes. This proactive approach to quality health coverage is, CTAHP believes, a major reason for Connecticut’s dramatic rise in HMO enrollment.
