Who We Are

The Healthcare Transformation Consortium (HTC) is collaborative of health care organizations including Atlantic Health System, CentraState Healthcare System, Holy Name Medical Center, Hunterdon Healthcare, St. Joseph’s Health, Virtua and Saint Peter’s Healthcare System. The member organizations have collectively bid out for third-party administration of their self-insured employee health plans. The group selected a single carrier with the aim of reducing administrative fees associated with providing health care benefits and providing more choice and access for the members and their dependents. The consortium selected Aetna, who partnered with the member organizations to develop a unique product that can be replicated by health systems in other regions.

The member organizations are collectively providing medical benefits to nearly 75,000 employees and families in New Jersey and are taking the lead in improving the quality and affordability of care. The unique model developed by HTC can be shared locally with other self-insured employers and replicated nationally. By working closely with like-minded organizations, HTC plans to share best practices, learn from one another, and lead the transition from fee-for-service to value-based care, using their own benefit plans as proving grounds.
