Evergreen Health Co-op


At Evergreen Health we put your health first.

Evergreen Health is a new health insurance company in Maryland created to give you a better health care experience.

We were founded by local doctors who imagined a health care system that puts a patient’s health first – not corporate profits. Evergreen Health offers quality, affordable health insurance plans  for individuals and families in Maryland.  We also offer group plans for employees of your business who work in Maryland.


Evergreen Health Co-op began as a
vision for change back in 2010.

Our Founder, President & CEO, Dr. Peter Beilenson, is a physician and public health visionary who has transformed the local health care system over the past 25 years in his role as a public health leader and an advocate for health care for all. 

Dr. Beilenson saw the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 — the national health care reform law known as the “ACA” or “Obamacare” — as an opportunity to bring Marylanders a new model of health care. Dr. Beilenson and a reform-minded group of experts in health and medicine saw a better way to offer innovative health insurance options for the people of Maryland. They named it Evergreen Health after the neighborhood coffee shop in Baltimore where the idea was born.

The Evergreen Health model is built in part on the Healthy Howard Health Plan, a successful model for delivering health care to uninsured residents of Howard County, Maryland. Healthy Howard is an innovative primary care model with integrated health coaching and care coordination services that launched in 2008 under Beilenson’s leadership as the county Health Officer.
