News from Montana Health CO-OP
HELENA — Treasa Glinnwater of Ronan was recently elected to serve on the first member-wide board of directors for Montana Health CO-OP for the next two years. She joins seven other board members from across Montana.
Glinnwater has owned a full-time, private practice in psychotherapy for the past 27 years in both Missoula and Polson and has served on the Montana Board of Social Work Examiners and Counselors for eight years. Toward the end of her second term in 2012, the Association of Social Work Boards of the U.S. and Canada awarded her the Sunny Andrews Award for Outstanding Commitment to Social Work Regulatory Board Service.
“We are incredibly fortunate to have such a well-rounded group of dedicated Montanans offering to serve on our board. Their business experience, knowledge of the health industry and knowledge of our state will be invaluable in helping shape and grow MHC,” said Joan Miles, Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Montana Health CO-OP was formed in 2012 with a federal loan from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services. The company has more than 14,,500 members and first-year premiums of $40 million. As a non-profit, MHC keeps costs low, returns profits to members in the form of lower premiums, improved coverage and better quality care, and employs only 21 staff members.
