MARSHFIELD – Security Health Plan of Wisconsin released the annual review of community investments for 2020-2021: Taking Care: A Community Investment. As a not-for-profit organization, Security Health Plan is focused on helping people and communities achieve their best health. The report highlights many of the ways Security Health Plan achieved that goal in 2020.
In 2020, Security Health Plan invested in community partnerships within 39 counties in the Health Plan’s service area. The investments focus on four community health priorities known as the ABCS: Alcohol and other substance use, Behavioral health, Chronic disease and Social determinants of health. By focusing on these areas, Security Health Plan made measurable improvements on the health of the communities we serve.
“Security Health Plan is proud to support local Wisconsin organizations by providing them resources to improve the health of people living in their communities,” said Chief Executive Officer of Security Health Plan Julie Brussow. “As a not-for-profit health plan, we not only provide high-quality health insurance to our customers, we are improving the health of communities around our service area, reaching most of Wisconsin. This work is part of our mission, and is another way we care for the communities we serve.”
Over the past year, Security Health Plan supported programs to reduce food insecurity, stop prescription drug abuse, and help the emotional well-being of schoolchildren. In addition to these efforts, Security Health Plan and Marshfield Clinic Health System established the COVID-19 Community Support Fund which provided $400,000 to 72 Wisconsin organizations that needed a helping hand during this unprecedented time.
At Security Health Plan we believe people play an essential role in their own health care – and the more they know, the more they can take better care. See how Security Health Plan is helping people take care in our report, Taking Care: A Community Investment, at www.securityhealth.org/
