PPO Networks

Choosing a healthcare network from most carriers usually involves compromise and comes with a price. With ECOH you will have the best of both the access and affordability worlds with our ECOHOne, ECOH 2 and ECOH 3 networks. Whether you are looking for a network with all three Rockford Health Systems or a single hospital network with the deepest discounts, ECOH has a product that’s right for you.

Plus, every ECOH member, in every network, has automatic access to some 200 hospitals and 50,000 physicians throughout Illinois and the bordering areas of Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowa and Missouri through our affiliation with HFN Inc., a highly regarded Preferred Provider Organization that expands ECOH members’ options for healthcare solutions geographically and across very broad specialty offerings.

But wait, it gets better

No one in the area does self-funding better than ECOH. We can assist Members in securing best-in-class reinsurance service too, designed to greatly reduce cost, and increase the flexibility, of what is typically the single most expensive component of a self-funded healthcare insurance plan.

Leave it to ECOH

ECOH has fostered strong, personal relationships throughout the region among employers and local healthcare delivery systems. Our coalition gives us more leverage, more clout with Managing General Underwriters (MGUs) who in turn find better pricing through a network of competing reinsurance companies. ECOH’s purchasing power has gained the trust of local employers to achieve the greatest value and effectiveness in their health benefit plans. It’s as easy as ECOHOne, 2, 3.


In Rockford, ECOH ONE is a model of what the future might look like in healthcare. ECOH ONE offers the deepest discounts and features SwedishAmerican Health Systems’ Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH). SwedishAmerican’s PCMH sites have all received the highest level of accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance. For those seeking a high value combination of cost containment and best practices in healthcare, ECOH ONE is for you.



Centered on SwedishAmerican Health System and Rockford Health System, ECOH 2 couples expanded access in Rockford with solid unit cost containment. Rockford Memorial Hospital was named by HealthgGrades as among the top 5% nationally for patient safety - one of only 13 so recognized in Illinois. For those needing greater provider access in Rockford, ECOH 2 delivers big savings.


For those needing the greatest possible access, ECOH 3 features all three health systems in metropolitan Rockford. OSF St. Anthony Medical Center is a regional delivery system including: Cardiovascular Services, Center for Cancer Care, Illinois Neurological Institute, and Women’s Center and has physician offices throughout greater Rockford.
