American Community Mutual Insurance worked to maintain the health and well-being of America's communities, but failed to keep itself robust. American Community provided group and individual health care plans and life insurance plans in over a dozen states throughout the Midwest and Southwest. The company's offerings included PPO, short-term health, dental, vision, and prescription plans. Focusing largely on the small to midsized employer group market, the company insured more than 165,000 individuals. The company distributes its products through a force of 14,000 independent agents. American Community was founded in 1938. Due to financial troubles, the company entered into rehabilitation in 2010.
