In 2012, Common Ground Healthcare Cooperative (CGHC) was founded when a group of like-minded community leaders answered the call to create a different kind of health insurance company. One intended to be more responsive to the needs of individuals, families, and small employers.
As a cooperative (under Wisconsin law), we exist to give members a voice, always having a say in organizational and financial decision-making. We remain true to our roots as a non-profit cooperative and are operated by our members through a Board of Directors. The CGHC Board of Directors is made up of and elected by members so that member-needs are always the priority.
