Health Plan, Inc. (HPI)

What is HPI?

Health Plan, Inc. (HPI) is the 501 c (9) nonprofit, self-funded Association-Sponsored Health Plan of LeadingAge Texas, which represents not-for-profit aging services providers throughout the state. Its sole purpose is to provide excellent, affordable employee health insurance and ancillary benefit options for LeadingAge Texas members and their employees.


An Array of Quality, Affordable Choices for You and Your Employees

The program will provide us with the opportunity to offer health insurance that lowers cost and better fits the needs of LeadingAge Texas Members through unique plan designs, leveraged size and managed health care spend. While our initial focus is a health plan, other employee benefit lines of coverage are available that include group dental, vision, life and AD&D, Disability and other work site benefits.


Avoid Overpaying for Major Healthcare Needs

HPI assures that fair and reasonable prices are paid to health care providers and that you, your employees and the Plan are not paying for billing mistakes or over charges. This helps keep premiums under control. HPI also offers a price transparency service that provide upfront cost and quality transparency for both medical and pharmacy needs.


Owned and Governed by HPI members.
