Arizona Foundation for Medical Care (AFMC) was founded in 1969 as a not-for-profit organization by a group of 800 physicians from the Maricopa County Medical Society. These physicians believed that there was a better way to create and manage a healthcare network in Arizona.  
Today, AFMC has grown into Arizona’s largest statewide independent healthcare network by providing highly-accessible, quality care, while focusing on containing healthcare costs for employer groups through comprehensive medical management and wellness programs.   
AFMC’s unique difference, which has enabled it to thrive for nearly 40 years, is that AFMC is not a single plan or insurance company, but rather a managed care network and medical management company. Working directly with brokers, consultants, general agents, third party administrators, and insurance companies, AFMC provides Arizonans the freedom of choice by offering a variety of health plans.  
This flexibility enables AFMC to offer the most cost-effective network options to fit the needs of individuals, families or businesses. These plans include Foundation PPO, Foundation EPO/PPO Plus, Foundation Point of Service (POS), Foundation Select and Foundation Comp, in addition to AFMC’s newest product: A partnership in VentureNet Healthcare, a Regional Preferred Provider Network (RPPO) serving employer groups in the Western half of the country.
AFMC’s network currently includes more than 13,000 professional providers in over 30,000 locations and is contracted with 73 hospitals throughout Arizona, in addition to outpatient surgery centers, dialysis clinics/centers, convenience clincs, urgent care centers and numerous other specialty facilities. AFMC also offers a wellness program and a comprehensive package of medical management services that include: Utilization, Case and Disease Management, 24-hour Nurse Care Line and Maternity Management services.  
Many of the programs now recognized as standard benchmarks for managed healthcare plans across America were pioneered by Arizona Foundation for Medical Care.
