Advancing equity in healthcare
CCA was one of the first health plans in the country to tackle the complex task of vaccinating its members against COVID-19. From the onset of the pandemic, our Health Equity team worked with clinical leadership to ensure that fairness was at the center of our vaccination rollout. We fielded a data-driven campaign to identify our most vulnerable members, and as we deployed vaccinators, we observed that Black and Latinx members were resisting vaccination at a higher rate than white and Asian members. We quickly responded by mounting an education campaign in English and Spanish, providing sound, trusted information that empowered members to make informed decisions. Simultaneously, we activated our proprietary Member Voices program, conducting one-on-one interviews with members of color to better understand the kind of information they valued and adjusting our approach to meet them at their level of readiness.

Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion are woven into the fabric of our mission and values—from how we recruit top talent, to the collaborative spaces we create for employees to express themselves, to the way we serve our members. We understand that the diversity of our staff and their perspectives are essential drivers of innovation, creativity, stewardship, and our performance.
At CCA, we value and celebrate the uniqueness of every individual by fostering an environment of inclusion, respect, belonging, and empowerment.
Diversity is defined by who we are as individuals. CCA recognizes that its strength comes from the dedication, experience, talents, and perspectives of every employee. Diversity encompasses the range of similarities and differences each individual brings to the workplace, including but not limited to national origin, language, race, color, disability, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, veteran status, and family structures.
The CCA Diversity and Inclusion Council fosters organizational change by establishing a dedicated focus on diversity and inclusion as a business imperative, and leading diversity and inclusion initiatives at CCA. The council provides a platform for overseeing, assessing, and supporting the effectiveness of the diversity and inclusion strategy, the diversity networks, and community outreach. The council also introduces new strategic initiatives when needed.
As we grow, our goal is to continue to build a high-performing, diverse, and inclusive workforce based on acceptance and trust. To stay true to this mission, we’ve developed diversity networks that gather CCA team members who share common values and interests.
Open to everyone at CCA, our networks focus specifically on giving minority groups and their allies a voice. These groups include:
Black/African American and Allies
Asian and Allies
Hispanic/Latinos and Allies
Women and Allies
Pride and Allies
People with Disabilities and Allies
At CCA, our commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion includes our suppliers. We are committed to developing mutually beneficial relationships with People of Color, Disability, Women, Ethnicity, LGBTQ+, Veteran, and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned business to drive innovation, sustainability, and social responsibility. Through these partnerships, we aim to strengthen our communities.
CCA Recognized as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion”
CCA has been named a Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion in 2022 by the Disability Equality Index (DEI). The DEI is a joint initiative of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), the nation’s largest disability rights organization, and Disability:IN, the global business disability inclusion network. This award recognizes the readiness of CCA’s workplace for individuals with disabilities.
In 2020, when the pandemic made community engagement even more critical, CCA fielded a new Community Outreach team to help foster social responsibility and reduce health disparities. To help combat food insecurity, CCA donated over $100,000 to food banks across the state and joined forces with Lynn Community Health Center to co-sponsor a monthly mobile food market where volunteers—CCA team members included—distribute food to over 400 families in the community each month. During COVID-19 the team attended 500+ community events, hosted approximately 200 more, and distributed 8,000+ care packages to individuals living in low-income housing.
