Why Balance

It is our mission to improve the health of our community by delivering quality, affordable healthcare.

We understand that your healthcare needs and wants are as unique as the diverse Bay Area community in which we live and work. That’s why we offer more than health insurance – we have plans that help you achieve health and wellness your way.


Our Story

Balance is a new kind of health plan by CCHP, a Bay Area Original with 40 years of experience in taking care of residents and businesses. What began as a way to fill a niche left by large health insurance corporations has turned into a vibrant, full-service health plan that is welcoming to everyone looking for a quality alternative.

With Balance, we pride ourselves on personalized service with digital complements to serve you the way you want to engage with us and our extensive network of healthcare providers.


Our Products

Balance offers Individual & Family Plans (inside and outside Covered California exchange) and Employer Group Plans for businesses large and small. We compete directly with major health insurance companies by offering the right-sized, personalized alternative for healthcare coverage.

Balance by CCHP is licensed with the California Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) to offer commercial health plans and maintains an URAC accreditation.


As the healthcare landscape changes rapidly, it can be difficult to know where to start. Balance is your trusted source for the latest health policy news, press releases, expert interviews, healthy lifestyle advice, and more.
