Benefits of Membership


Contain Your Health Costs

Healthcare Purchaser Alliance members are on the cutting edge of healthcare purchasing. Through initiatives like group purchasing of pharmacy benefits, bundled payments for inpatient procedures, and preferred contracting with high quality health care providers, Alliance members are leading the way to high-value health care.


Network and Learn with Maine Businesses

Through groups like the Purchaser Learning Collaborative, Alliance members share strategies and best practices that help increase employee engagement, improve health, and lower costs. In addition to all the local knowledge and expertise, Alliance members also have access to national resources through a strategic partnership with the National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions.


Amplify Your Impact

One of the key reasons purchasers join the Alliance is because they understand that purchasers are stronger when they work together. Representing over a third of the commercially-insured lives in the state, Alliance members have the power to drive change by speaking with a common voice. Without any conflicts of interest, no other organization in the state represents purchaser priorities.
