HealthyCT and TANGO Join to Bring a Preferred Health Insurance to Non-Profit Groups HealthyCT, Connecticut’s non-profit health insurance CO-OP, has joined forces with The Alliance for Non-profit Growth and Opportunity, Inc., or TANGO, to bring its health plans for small and large businesses to non-profit organizations across the state on a preferred basis. TANGO is a first-of-its-kind collaboration platform that brings non-profits together to lower costs on professional services such as employee benefits, human resource consulting, management consulting and marketing, among others. Membership in TANGO is free to any 501(c) non-profit organization, and additional membership information is available at or at 1-877-708-2646. The partnership with TANGO inspired HealthyCT to create a special suite of plans with preferred pricing for participating non-profit groups. These plans are exclusively offered through TANGO’s founding partner, Schuster Driscoll, LLC, an employee benefit consulting and brokerage firm based in Farmington that specializes in the non-profit sector. “As a non-profit health insurance company, working directly with TANGO to reach out to other non-profits who share our values makes perfect sense,” said HealthyCT CEO Ken Lalime. “This strategic partnership will help us bring HealthyCT’s unique brand of health insurance directly to the employers who need quality, affordable … Read More
