We’re expanding into northern Illinois in 2019

For several years, Quartz has been providing administrative services for self-funded plans to Illinois employers.

For the 2019 plan year, we are now offering large group, small group and individual products in the counties of Boone, Ogle, Stephenson and Winnebago.

Plus, Quartz will be expanding its 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 to offer Quartz quality plans to communities in northern Illinois.

Our website has a new look!

In September, we launched our fully revamped website to provide enhanced functionality and a better service experience, especially for customers who access our site from a mobile device.

The new site merges these Quartz affiliate websites into –

  • GundersenHealth

Along with the launch of the single Quartz website, we’re communicating to our members about how to find the right information for their plan. MyPlanTools, your provider portal, is still easily accessible from the home page. We invite you to browse and let us know what you think. will remain as a separate website for our Medicare Advantage plans.
