Members' premiums work together

When you pay your monthly insurance premium, the money goes into a pool, which pays the medical expenses for everyone else in that pool. Their premiums also help pay your medical costs. 

What premiums pay

More than 85 cents of every dollar Wellmark receives goes to doctors, hospitals and pharmacists. Out of that, we also have to pay taxes and administrative costs — Wellmark's are among the lowest in the industry.
