Update on Employer Healthcare Coalition

Many of you may recall that last year we created an employer healthcare coalition and hosted a series of luncheons on various healthcare topics.

Earlier this year before COVID, we had planned a meet and greet back in February to formally launch the coalition.  Then, the end of the world happened.

We would like to update you about a few things and request your feedback:

  1. The Coalition is Official.  The coalition is official.  In October of 2019, we filed a certificate of incorporation to create a formal legal entity that will be known as the “Oklahoma Employers Healthcare Alliance” or “OEHA.”
  2. Coalition’s Purpose.  The coalition’s basic purpose is to bring together leaders and decision-makers to share ideas and information and improve healthcare for Oklahoma employers and employees.  The coalition will likely host luncheons and educational seminars, and leverage our collective size to influence positive change.  There are large coalitions in other markets and the OEHA could also network with these other coalitions.
  3. We Have a Logo and a Website.  We have an initial logo and draft of a website, which you can access here:  www.oeha.org.  The logo is at the top of the website.  The website is still in draft form.  (Once it is finalized, the wild apricot references will disappear.)
  4. We Have a Management Company.  We are using and working with the same All-Star management team that manages the Southwest Benefits Association and the DFW Business Group on Health.  These people know what they are doing and they will help us launch and keep the organization moving forward in a positive way.

Are You Interested?  Please send me an email if you are interested in learning more about being a part of the coalition.
