quartz about us

About Us

Quartz is the result of the forward-thinking integration of Gundersen Health Plan and Unity Health Insurance – two organizations aligning their business needs in order to better serve members. Quartz will be responsible for managing these two nationally recognized, provider-sponsored health plans, with the primary goal of making sure that the local communities they serve have access to innovative, high-quality and affordable health care. Quartz also is a third-party administrator of self-funded health plans.

Our Purpose

We believe that the health insurance industry should do far more than just provide access to doctors and cover or administer claims. The way we see it, health care plans should help people live healthier. Which is exactly what makes us different. As a health plan management and administrative services company, we’re leading the charge on everything from expanding network physician and provider options to creating innovative approaches to wellness, prevention and community well-being. That’s because at Quartz, we’re a company committed to good health.

quartz philosophy


Imagine a future where health plans are equally as committed to creating wellness programs as they are to expanding provider networks – as committed to community health as they are to the customer experience. A time when health plans are designed, supported and managed by people who truly care about making every community they touch not only healthier, but also happier. We believe that day is today. At Quartz, we believe that the health plans we manage and administer can be an integral part of advancing and bettering humankind. This is our vision for the future.

LIVE LIFE LIKE YOU MEAN IT. Here’s to living large each and every day. To chasing your passions and following your dreams – no matter where they decide to take you. Here’s to taking a moment and thinking about your health – to making a commitment to health and happiness.

Local Decision Making. Broader Network Access.

Thanks to this partnership, we now have access to an even larger provider network. This means that certain plans will offer access, not only to local physicians throughout the UW Health and Gundersen Health System areas, but also to specialty care at Gundersen Health System, UW Health’s American Family Children’s Hospital and UW Health’s University Hospital – rated best in Wisconsin by U.S. News and World Report*. More importantly, as compared to others in the market, Quartz is a local company – making all of its decisions with your doctor’s input and in your own backyard.

*According to 2016-2017 edition of the Best Hospitals guide by U.S. News & World Report.
