TACHC Purchasing Group

The Texas Association of Community Health Centers Purchasing Group, Inc. (TACHC PG) was established to provide group medical malpractice insurance for members of TACHC. After the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) was established, TACHC PG sought coverage for the 'gap' in coverage for those situations outside of FTCA. TACHC PG is committed to quality improvement and sets aside proceeds from insurance refunds for these purposes such as the TACHC Performance Improvement (OC3) Manual and monthly trainings.
