Who we are: The Employers Health Alliance of Arizona (EHAAz) is the only nonprofit employer-member health alliance in Arizona focusing on healthcare transformation through the representation of employer’s interests. EHAAz provides practical tools, pioneering programs, and informative, insightful reports designed to support Arizona employers with market-based, employer driven approaches to lowering costs and improving quality.
Our Mission: Our Mission is to empower employers to reduce the upward cost spiral in healthcare and improve employee health. This will lead to a better quality of life for our citizens and will provide a better business climate for all current and future employers (public and private) in our regions and State.
Our Vision: Through this unified coordinated effort, Tucson (and Arizona) will become recognized as the healthiest community in America.
How an Employer’s Alliance can Influence Change: EHAAz is one of 52 Employer Coalition (Alliance) members of the National Business Coalition on Health (NBCH) located in 32 states, representing 12,000 public and private sector employers and approximately 41 million covered lives! Because employers represent over 50% of healthcare purchasers, they should have a strong voice in purchasing and shaping value and quality in the healthcare marketplace. By empowering our members through partnerships with business leaders, consumers, healthcare providers and insurers, we can encourage the market to listen and reposition itself to deliver optimized quality in healthcare.
