Fueled by the passion and commitment of business and nonprofit leaders in the Milwaukee area for affordable health insurance, Common Ground Healthcare Cooperative launched today to provide consumers, small business owners and nonprofit organizations with high quality, affordable health insurance in Southeastern Wisconsin. Common Ground Healthcare Cooperative was awarded a $56.4 million loan from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to build the new nonprofit organization and bring affordable health insurance to the region beginning January 1, 2014.
“We’re honored to bring a new approach to affordable, quality health insurance to individuals, small businesses and nonprofits throughout Southeastern Wisconsin,” said Bob Connolly, Board president of the newly formed Common Ground Healthcare initiative. “As a small business owner, I grew tired of the exorbitant increases in health insurance costs with no real additional value. Common Ground Healthcare is a solution to the region’s cry for help.”
