As a not-for-profit cooperative, The Alliance is employer-owned and remains a trusted, objective partner for employers and their brokers who seek improved access to high-quality healthcare.

We’re Madison-based, but we work with 300+ employers across the Midwest and contract with over 32,000 doctors and other health care providers in the region. Our goal is to help employers better manage their healthcare costs while remaining transparent and emphasizing value – creating healthier, more engaged workforces.

We set our employees up for success, encouraging not only their professional advancement but also their personal growth.
