About Swoosh

The objective of the SWOOSH consortium is to maximize benefits while minimizing costs of medical, prescription drug, vision, dental, life and / or other group insurance coverages. Working together to purchase group insurance allows the districts to pool their members. With more members on the plan, the consortium can leverage the larger scale of the entire group and work toward obtaining the most competitive rates while securing unique wellness offers and additional investments to better manage long term costs. While the consortium provides short term savings, it also facilitates long term rate stability through their economies of scale, wellness standards for each district as well as an annual wellness fund.  

Currently, SWOOSH includes nine school districts and 4,789 enrolled employees. For more information on SWOOSH, contact Valerie Bogdan-Powers at HORAN, 513.745.0707
