BUILDING A BETTER CHOICE IN HEALTH CARE
Peak Health is a health insurer and health insurance services company headquartered in Morgantown, West Virginia. We are owned by four not-for-profit health care providers: WVU Health System, Marshall Health, Mountain Health Network, and Valley Health. This allows us to have a completely collaborative approach to insurance that will connect the bridge between the provider and the payer.
Our Vision is to be an inclusive, provider-led health plan that helps residents of West Virginia and beyond live healthier and fuller lives.
Peak Health is taking bold steps towards improving health outcomes in West Virginia, western Virginia, and other surrounding areas. This is home to our employers and their families, so we are dedicated to offering a new approach to health care that is designed for our communities and delivered by local providers.
With the success of Peak, we can improve access and bring down health care costs and administration fees for patients and employers. Our Mission is to make health care more accessible, understandable, and collaborative.
