Together with our millions of supporters, the American Cancer Society (ACS) saves lives and creates a world with less cancer and more birthdays by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back. The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, the ACS has 12 chartered Divisions, more than 900 local offices nationwide, and a presence in more than 5,100 communities.
CHPS currently provides self-insured employers with claims processing and medical management services, as well as a network of over 500 contracted facilities and professionals throughout the region. CHPS serves over 3,000 enrollees, and plans to joint venture with a licensed carrier to offer fully-insured coverage to small employers and individuals. CHPS also allocates a portion of its income to subsidize wellness care for the high risk uninsured. This helps keep their conditions from becoming expensive medical emergencies, whose costs hospitals must pass on to other patients in the form of higher charges.
