Our Company

Working together for better outcomes.

Parkland Community Health Plan was started in 1999 by Parkland Health & Hospital System as a managed care organization to provide services for Texas Medicaid STAR and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) recipients.

We aim to change the way communities think about healthcare by connecting people to meaningful health and wellness experiences. As a part of our network, members can access convenient, affordable healthcare and trust they have a place to turn for safe, quality healthcare services for themselves and their families.

Our service area covers Dallas, Collin, Ellis, Hunt, Kaufman, Navarro, and Rockwall counties, where members can seek care at more than 6,000 doctors and specialists and over 40 hospitals and urgent care centers.

After nearly two decades of third-party administration, PCHP will partner with Cognizant Technology Solutions to improve our claim management function and bring a wealth of services in house. This transition will allow us to better support both providers and members, including improved medical management, in-house provider network management, and improved services through the implementation of a new core enterprise system. Through this change, we will build stronger relationships with our members, providers, and partners to ultimately provide the best service to our members in the community.
