March 19, 2020: COVID-19 and Business Continuity
During the current COVID-19 emergency, Comagine Health is fully staffed and business operations are not interrupted.

For utilization review, case management and related activities, we are continuing to process requests and answer calls via our toll-free numbers during standard business hours. We have business continuity plans in place to serve our clients, health care providers, patients and communities while also protecting our staff and minimizing the spread of the illness.

May 13, 2019: Qualis Health is now Comagine Health
In 2018 Qualis Health and HealthInsight announced a formal merger, combining the two organizations and operations across the U.S. Now we are introducing our new name, Comagine Health.

Some of the information you use to access our services will be changing, such as web links and email addresses; however, existing web links and email addresses will continue to work as before until further notice. Phone and fax numbers will remain the same for the foreseeable future.

If you have questions about our name change, please contact Yvette Stratton, Director, Care Management, at (800)-949-7536 ext. 2443 or Ystratton@comagine.org.
