About the Group Insurance Commission

Who We Are & What We Do

Established by the Legislature in 1955, the Group Insurance Commission (GIC) is a quasi-independent state agency governed by a 17-member Commission appointed by the Governor.

With over 275,000 subscribers and 450,000 members, the GIC provides and administers high-quality, affordable health insurance and other benefits to the Commonwealth's Employees and Retirees, and their dependents and survivors.

GIC also provides coverage to participating municipalities, Housing, and Redevelopment Authorities' personnel as well as to retired municipal employees and teachers in certain governmental units.

Under the leadership of Executive Director Matt Veno, the GIC is committed to achieving these four goals:

- Provide access to high quality, affordable benefit options for employees, retirees and dependents.

- Limit the financial liability to the Commonwealth and others (of fulfilling benefit obligations) to sustainable growth rates.

- Use the GIC’s leverage to innovate and otherwise favorably influence the Massachusetts health care market.

- Evolve business and operational environment of the GIC to better meet business demands and security standards.
