Our Mission

Through innovative solutions and trust building, we improve health in collaboration with individuals and communities.

Our Vision

Together with our community, Access Health empowers people to create and sustain optimal health for all.

What We Do

Health Coverage Plan
Our Access C3 Health Plan provides a  coverage option for Muskegon area workers who don’t qualify for Medicaid but can’t afford traditional medical insurance.

Community Health Support
We offer support and assistance for various grassroots initiatives and programs to support the health of the Muskegon community.

Why We Do It

Since 1999, we have been dedicated to providing access to affordable, quality health care so that individuals and communities can thrive.

We value innovation, building strong relationships, and community collaboration.

Guiding Principles

  • Promote Optimal Health.
    We’re here to help our members, our community, and ourselves make real changes that lead to optimal, sustained health outcomes.

  • Build Open and Honest Relationships.
    We approach every relationship with extraordinary care and empowerment. We treat others with respect, dignity, fairness, and equality -we are accountable, transparent, and truthful.

  • Embrace and Drive Change.
    We are committed to pursuing excellence and are empowered to take necessary, calculated risks in order to be successful.

  • Be Passionate and Determined.
    We get excited about our mission and vision and are committed to do whatever it takes to get things done, regardless of our role or position.

  • Pursue Growth and Learning.
    We never let the organization, our community, or ourselves stand still.

  • Be Good Stewards of Our Resources.
    We make use of every resource we have, to maximize the return on investment for the long-term benefit of our members and our community.

  • Do What’s Right.
    We believe that success will follow only when we do the right thing by our members, our community, and our staff. We have the courage to do what’s right, even when it’s difficult.

  • Instill Hope and Build Dreams.
    We believe our members, our community, and our team each have enormous power to shape their own future. We meet each where they are, help them dream of where they want to be, and work with them to make small changes to make dreams reality.

Shared Costs, Shared Benefits

Because the funding structure for our health plan combines resources from community stakeholders with a vested interest in community health – including care providers, hospitals, and businesses, members only pay 30% of the premiums.

Our goal is to improve health quality, healthcare delivery, and lower health costs. Since 1999, the cost of health coverage through Access Health has increased less than 1% per year.
