About Us

Community Health Options® is a non-profit, Member-led health insurance plan providing comprehensive health insurance benefits to individuals, families, and businesses. We are a Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan (CO-OP) licensed in Maine. We are dedicated to providing affordable, high-quality health benefits through productive partnerships with Members, businesses, and a broad network of providers. We are governed by a Board of Directors, a majority of whom are Community Health Options Members, which ensures that Members have a strong voice in the management and development of the products and services.
Our innovative approach is designed specifically to provide affordable, high-quality benefits that promote health and wellbeing. We believe that healthcare can be both better and more affordable when doctors, patients, health insurers, and employers all work together to bring about positive change.
We believe that the community plays an important role in people’s health. As such, we support local resources whenever possible to help ensure better access to high-quality, integrated care.
