About Us

Vision

To be a leader in government-sponsored healthcare programs in collaboration with our members, providers, and government partners.

We foster a rewarding and enriching culture to inspire our associates to do well for others and themselves.

We are passionate leaders, achievers, and innovators dedicated to making a difference in the lives of our members, our providers and in the healthcare industry.

We provide government-based health plans (Medicare, Medicaid, and the Health Insurance Marketplace) throughout Michigan’s lower peninsula.

Our members are our reason for being. We help those eligible for government-sponsored healthcare live better, healthier lives.
