Common Ground Healthcare adds DCMC to Envision Network

Common Ground Healthcare Cooperative (CGHC) and Door County Medical Center (DCMC) have announced that they be partnering starting in 2018 to serve the health and insurance needs of Door and Kewaunee County residents.  
The partnership means that Common Ground Healthcare Cooperative members will have in-network access to DCMC’s hospital located in Sturgeon Bay as well as clinics in Algoma, Fish Creek, Brussels, Sturgeon Bay and Washington Island. The hospital and clinics offer a wide range of primary and specialty care provided by more than 175 DCMC physicians.
Common Ground Healthcare’s cost-effective Envision network is offered to both individuals and small employers in 19 Wisconsin counties including Door and Kewaunee. In 2018, CGHC will be the only health insurance carrier serving individuals accessing financial assistance to purchase insurance through Healthcare.gov.
CGHC’s Chief Executive Officer Cathy Mahaffey said, “We are pleased to announce this agreement with Door County Medical Center because our missions are aligned in service to our communities. DCMC shares our philosophy of putting people first.”
“The health insurance exchange is very important to our community, since about 10% of our population accesses insurance through the exchange. That being the case, we are very pleased to partner with Common Ground Healthcare Cooperative to honor our commitment to be the provider of choice for all residents of Door and Kewaunee Counties,” stated Brian Stephens, Chief Administrative Office for Door County Medical Center.
This new partnership will offer residents and visitors of Door County with CGHC insurance more options for care including the award-winning critical access hospital, close to home clinics and quality specialists.
