- PCACH developed a communication plan and relevant materials to satisfy their needs.
The Possible Risks for Payers:
- no access to technologies that allow them to receive materials and the updated data;
- low level of transparency of the established system;
- PCACH tries to eliminate risks by organizing meetings or presentations and delivering the material to homes, as well as making regular calls, and updating the information on the website (PCACH 50).
Board of Trustees:
- assures that the work of PCACH is legal, adequately organized and may be checked and examined by the community;

The local government (county executive, county council, and senator) approves and controls stewardship and transparency of the service provision, as well as ensures that the core guidelines of the federal and state bodies are implemented in the county (PCACH 54).
Possible Risks in the Operations of the Government:
- lack of the relevant data (the professional statistics of the providers and their employees, the assessment and inspection data from different institutions) in order to conduct proper evaluation of the quality of services provided (Ravi et al. 199)
- insufficient level of cooperation with other stakeholders.
