Door County Medical Center is trying to make it easier for those reliant on the federal health care exchange to get the care they need. Last week Door County Medical Center announced it was partnering with Common Ground Healthcare Cooperative to serve the health and insurance needs of Door and Kewaunee County residents. About 10 percent of the local population relies on the healthcare exchange, which is one of the highest ratios in the state. Door County Medical Center Chief Administrative Officer Brian Stephens says the partnership is all about serving the community better.
Common Ground Healthcare Cooperative is the only health insurance company offering plans in Door County through the exchange, down from six when the program first started.
