Spring 2019

We are dedicated to steady progress to integrate our programs and services into one unified system to better serve our members. Reflecting this transition, it’s time for us to align all our separate underwriting entities under the Quartz name.


As of May 20, 2019, our new Quartz underwriting company names will be –

Current Underwriter Name New Underwriter Name as of May 20
Gundersen Health Plan, Inc. Quartz Health Plan Corporation
Gundersen Health Plan Minnesota Quartz Health Plan MN Corporation
Physicians Plus Insurance Corporation Quartz Health Insurance Corporation
Unity Health Plans Insurance Corporation Quartz Health Benefit Plans Corporation

No action is required by providers as a result of the name change – it’s merely another step in the full transformation of the Quartz brand.

Member Impact:

Due to regulatory requirements, a small number of members will be issued new ID cards as a result of the name change. However, there will be no changes to members’ plans, premiums, cost-sharing or benefits.

Most members can continue to use their existing ID cards.

Members will be notified of the change via mail or email in May.

We are excited to continue our journey to bring our entire organization under one strong, reliable Quartz brand.

We’re proud to share the Quartz Mission, Vision and Values:
