Unity Health Plans Insurance Corporation and Gundersen Health Plan announced Jan. 29 the signing of a non-binding letter of intent to explore a new partnership that will benefit both organizations.
The goal of the partnership between Unity Health Plans Insurance Corporation, an affiliate of UW Health, and Gundersen Health Plan, a subsidiary of Gundersen Health System, is to help facilitate a way for patients to access local health care and to help manage the health of larger populations, utilizing the best of each organization’s products and practices.
The letter of intent is a starting point to determine how the two health plans can work together. The structure of a more formal working relationship has yet to be determined. The letter of intent allows the two health plans, not the health systems to which they are connected, to discuss future partnerships.
