Our Company

Working together for better outcomes.

Parkland Community Health Plan was established as a managed care organization in 1999, when our sponsoring organization, Parkland Health, saw a need to extend its mission and offer high-quality, low-cost care to Dallas County residents without private health insurance. With the support of local community leaders, PCHP began providing services to Texas STAR Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) recipients, helping members to access programs and services that were designed to meet their specific needs, improve their overall health, and help them feel valued as part of their communities.

Through the PCHP network, members can access convenient, affordable healthcare and trust that they have a place to turn for safe, high-quality services for themselves and their families. Today, our service area covers Dallas, Collin, Ellis, Hunt, Kaufman, Navarro, and Rockwall counties, where members can seek care from more than 9,000 in-network primary care doctors and specialists.

Our plans provide access to regular preventive care and assistance in managing chronic conditions. Through an innovative, person-centered approach, we aim to reduce the need for emergency room visits and improve the overall health of the communities in which we serve.

We understand the importance of connecting members to quality care while also addressing the social needs that negatively impact their health and well-being, including barriers to transportation, housing, and food, among others. To do this, PCHP offers holistic service coordination with attention to cultural awareness, spiritual beliefs, health literacy, and person-centered service planning. We also leverage our strategic community partnerships to develop innovative solutions to important health issues facing the Dallas Service Area.

Every day, we strive to connect people to high-quality, equitable care that empowers them to live healthier lives in the communities they call home.
