Affiliated Health Funds (AHF) was created in 1983 by a coalition of southern California and southern Nevada Health & Welfare Funds - Carpenters Health & Welfare for Southern California, Operating Engineers Health & Welfare Fund (Local 12), and Southern California Pipe Trades Health & Welfare Fund - to help control the escalating costs they had been witnessing in health care.
The successful consumer-based efforts of this AHF coalition, in conjunction with medical service providers who had a mutual interest in maintaining reasonable costs, grew throughout the years, enabling its Member Funds to preserve a high level of health benefits despite rising costs. Up through 2008, the coalition members (the employees and their health plans) saved in excess of $800,000,000 by utilizing AHF's large provider network.
