Community Health Solutions of America, Inc. (CHS) is nationally recognized for our experience and leadership, in providing innovative and comprehensive medical care management services and solutions that improve health outcomes and reduce costs to a broad client base.
CHS was founded in 2003 with a commitment to provide a comprehensive patient focused care coordination solution to medically complex adult and pediatric communities across the country.

This is done by bringing together care coordination teams, claims processing services, call center support, printing and fulfillment services, human resources administration, payroll administration and our revolutionary care coordination software, Consensus™.
CHS has been on the cutting edge of Care Coordination working with States, hospitals, provider networks, and insurers as they evolved their processes and transitioned to, or away from care coordination and risk sharing models for delivering health care. We have incorporated everything we have learned from multiple customers into our processes and systems yet maintained our ability to remain flexible with the ability to quickly bring in other organizations structures, processes and tools to provide programs that are tailored to how and where you do business.
