About Us


Piedmont Community Health Plan is Central Virginia's very own managed healthcare organization, and is dedicated to providing its members with access to medical care that represents the highest standards for quality and efficiency.

As part of the Centra Health System, we operate on the principles that your personal physician should manage your healthcare, not out-of-town insurance administrators, and that there should be close cooperation between local healthcare providers, patients and employers.

As one the fastest growing healthcare plans in the region, our provider network includes more than 98 percent of the area's physicians, other healthcare professionals and the full resources of the Centra Health system.

Our primary service area includes the cities of Lynchburg and Bedford and the counties of Albemarle, Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, Buckingham, Campbell, Cumberland, Lunenburg, Nottoway and Prince Edward. We also serve members in portions of Charlotte, Halifax, Mecklenburg, Nelson and Pittsylvania counties ( CLICK for service area map ).

We offer two basic plan designs to local large or small employers: Point of Service (POS) plans and Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans. These plan designs are offered through a choice of funding arrangements. Self-insured arrangements are provided through the parent company, Piedmont Community Health Plan. Fully insured arrangements are provided through our wholly owned subsidiary, Piedmont Community HealthCare. All utilize the same Piedmont Community Health Plan network of providers.

If your plan requires you to select a Primary Care Physician to coordinate your medical care, then you are covered by a Point of Service (POS) plan.
