About HCAA

Following the passage of ERISA and similar laws, third party administrators needed an organization which was committed to providing them information, education and a voice in their state as well as in the capitol. HCAA was formed in 1980 as the Independent Administrators Association, a California-based not-for-profit that acted as a legislative and regulatory advisory group for third party administrators and related service providers. In 1998, the Independent Administrators Association rebranded itself as HCAA – the Health Care Administrators Association - and adopted as its guiding mission the support of third party administrators and the self funded industry.

The Health Care Administrators Association is the nation’s most prominent nonprofit trade association supporting education, networking, resource and advocacy needs of third-party administrators (TPAs), insurance carriers, managing general underwriters, audit firms, medical managers, technology organizations, pharmacy benefit managers, brokers/agents, human resource managers and health care consultants. For nearly 35 years, HCAA has taken a leadership role in legislative advocacy, working to increase its influence with policymakers and other stakeholders in order to transform the self-funding industry and expand its role within healthcare.
