Why Valley Health Plan?

At Valley Health Plan, we speak a language of quality coverage, service excellence, and member satisfaction.

Our members hear this language every time they interact with us; our providers hear it when they offer care to our members, and brokers hear it in how we conduct business. 

Valley Health Plan (VHP) is a Knox-Keene licensed Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) owned and operated by the County of Santa Clara since 1985. Our service area is the County of Santa Clara, covering individuals who live here.

In 2013, VHP expanded its license to offer individual plans directly to consumers and through Covered California.  We now offer Individual and Family Plans both on and off the exchange marketplace, extending our reach and our ability to serve our community.
