Our Mission

At Community, our mission is to improve the health and well-being of under-served residents of Southeast Texas by opening doors to coordinated, high-quality, affordable health care and health-related social services.

Our Promise

Community Health Choice is a LOCAL non-profit health plan. At Community, we genuinely CARE for and SERVE our Community. We are a TRUSTED partner who RESPECTS our Members and their families, opens doors to high-quality healthcare, and makes the process EASY. Even more simply, we say Community Cares.

What We Do

We are a local, non-profit health plan, offering Children's Medicaid (STAR) and CHIP programs. We also offer plans through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Community has a network of 10,000 doctors and 77 hospitals.

Our Care Management team offers:

  • Childbirth classes
  • Health education
  • Programs for asthma, diabetes and high-risk pregnancy

    We are affiliated with the Harris Health System. However, we do not receive any money from Harris Health System or from Harris County taxpayers.
