Health Insurance Pool

for Minnesota public entities

This program is only available to public agencies located in Minnesota.

Better together

Sourcewell’s health insurance pool is a community of public employers from across Minnesota who are committed to leading their people to the highest possible state of wellness, who leverage the power of cooperative purchasing and risk sharing to optimize the affordability and stability of valuable health plans and related services.

The pool is member-driven, with decisions made by membership-elected committees.

  • Transparent

    We provide very detailed reporting from a comprehensive list of standard mid-year and renewal reports.

  • Rigorous

    Our procurement process is conducted every two years and satisfies Health Insurance Transparency Act (HITA) bidding requirements, thus making optional the need for our member groups to seek health insurance bids separately every two years.

  • Nimble

    Our service team and vendor partners are equipped to respond to the ever-changing needs of our members.

  • Humble, Collaborative, and Attentive

    We don’t know it all, so we value input from our vendor partners and especially our members. We meet regularly, send periodic communications, and engage in annual surveys with our members.

Sourcewell partners with these vendors to provide a holistic insurance solution.

  • HealthPartners®
    For the past 10 years, Sourcewell—in cooperation with HealthPartners—has offered a self-funded health insurance program. There are no Sourcewell membership or administrative fees required for participation, allowing additional funds to be available for claims payment and rate stabilization.

    Negotiated benefit packages are duplicated and alternate plans are allowed, including consumer-driven health plans.

    Our health insurance pool is member-driven, with decisions made on your behalf by a membership-elected committee—including renewal rate and claims funding development.
