About us

While the health care industry is in a time of great change, AFMC’s purpose is solid: to help health care providers deliver the best quality of care at the lowest cost and to empower patients to take control of their own health and that of their families.

AFMC is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Little Rock, Ark., with an additional office in Fort Smith, Ark.  We are dedicated to working with beneficiaries and health care providers in all settings to improve overall health and consumers’ experience of care, while reducing health care costs.

We accomplish this through education, outreach, data analysis, information technology, medical case utilization and review, and marketing/communications services provided by a staff of approximately 300.

At the forefront of health care reform and practice transformation, AFMC is an established, trusted partner in private, state and federally led payment innovations by Medicare, Medicaid and commercial payers.
