Join our Board of Directors

Mountain Health CO-OP is seeking additional members to join its Board. We invite you to consider applying. Applications will be accepted until June 15th, 2022.

Why join us?

When you purchased health insurance coverage, you may not have been thinking in terms of “joining” an organization; you may have simply been buying what you felt was the best available coverage.

But we are so much more than that: we are a nonprofit, governed by our members, providing service to our fellow members.

And we want your voice on the board!
