about board of directors banner

Board of Directors

CFHP was established in 1995, by the University Health System, specifically to begin providing health care coverage to the citizens of Bexar and the surrounding seven counties. As the only locally owned and managed, non-profit health plan in the area, our commitment to our members is to provide great health care benefits backed by outstanding service, delivered by people who live right here in South Texas.

This website is intended to help you learn more about Community First Health Plans, learn how to use your plan benefits, or simply locate one of our network doctors in your neighborhood.

If you are a Community First member or network provider, you can communicate with us through our secure Web portal.
