Minnesota Association of County Health Plans (MACHP) is a Minnesota nonprofit corporation which is an association of County-Based Purchasing (CBP) organizations that have chosen to join MACHP. CBP organizations are a county or group of counties that elect to utilize CBP to purchase and/or provide health care services primarily to people who qualify for Minnesota's publicly subsidized health care programs for low income individuals (Minnesota Health Care Programs or MHCP). CBP organizations add value to MHCP by providing enrollees with dependable access to care, enhancing health care quality, supporting health care innovation in rural areas, and coordinating with county social and health care services for more efficient and effective outcomes.

MACHP works to educate policy makers about and improve the conditions for member CBP organizations in Minnesota, helping to ensure that rural counties have local control and self-determination in utilizing CBP and forming CBP organizations.

MACHP promotes CBP organizations in the following ways: 

  • Supporting legislation that ensures and protects local control and self-determination of counties in electing to utilize CBP and in forming CBP organizations.
  • Working for stronger public policy supporting CBP.
  • Providing opportunities for communication and sharing of information among CBP organizations in order to improve health care access and quality of care for the people they serve.
  • Promoting the development of new CBP organizations by engaging counties with interest in utilizing CBP, supporting the advancement of CBP models and stronger county roles in the administration of health programs.
