Mission and Vision 

National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions formerly known as the National Business Coalition on Health (NBCH) is a national, non-profit, membership association of employer led coalitions. Established in 1992, National Alliance’s membership of purchaser-led coalitions across the United States include over 200 diversely talented people serving 12,000 purchasers and 41 million Americans. These business coalitions are composed of mostly mid- and large-sized employers in both the private and public sectors in a particular city, county, or region. National Alliance member coalitions are committed to community health reform, including an improvement in the value of health care provided through employer-sponsored health plans and to the entire community.
