Quartz has been providing administrative services for self-funded plans to Illinois employers for several years. Now, we are offering large group, small group and individual products in the counties of Boone, Ogle, Stephenson and Winnebago, effective for the 2019 plan year. We are also expanding our Senior Preferred (HMO) Medicare Advantage health plans to northern Illinois with SwedishAmerican Senior Preferred.
SwedishAmerican Senior Preferred will be available to eligible Medicare beneficiaries who live in Winnebago County for coverage beginning January 1, 2019.
We are excited for the opportunity to broaden Quartz’s offerings in Illinois to meet the health insurance needs in these communities. Expanding the Quartz services into northern Illinois will increase patient access to SwedishAmerican, a division of UW Health.
