About Us


Community First Health Plans was established in 1995 by University Health specifically to begin providing health care coverage to the citizens of Bexar and its seven surrounding 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. Our goal is to help San Antonio and surrounding areas achieve more successful health outcomes by putting community first.

What We Do

We are proud to offer exceptional care for individuals and families including:

  • Newborns, children, adults, and seniors
  • Expectant mothers
  • Children and adults with disabilities 

Community First is NCQA-accredited (National Committee for Quality Assurance), meaning our health plans have undergone rigorous processes and successful certification to ensure our standards allow us to provide the best quality services to our Members and Providers. Our goal is to provide our community access to health care for all stages of life, along with the assurance of care for the unexpected, when needed most.

Why We Do It

Community First operates at a grass-roots level, interacting with key community organizations to help identify and provide information to help families obtain the health care coverage they need.

All the dollars received in our revenue stream are funneled directly back into the community to help our organization continue its mission of providing access to quality health care for San Antonio and the surrounding seven counties.

For over 28 years, Community First has provided quality health care and touched the lives of almost 3,000,000 unique individuals.

Community First Cares

Community First is proud to partner with various organizations who share like-minded goals and objectives and who wholeheartedly support the needs of San Antonio’s diverse communities.

Beginning September 1, 2024 Community First Health Plans, Inc. will be adding STAR+PLUS to its line of health care products.
