In reality, this award belongs to everyone at USHEALTH Group, Inc. It is a testament to our company’s ongoing commitment to solve the healthcare affordability problem for customers by providing them with innovative coverage that can grow as their healthcare needs grow”.
While Troy McQuagge is correct, it is easy to sell affordable coverage when insurance costs are rising, companies don’t enjoy growth and profitably without an adept leader at the helm.

In 2014, McQuagge was promoted to CEO of USHEALTH Group. Since McQuagge joined USHEALTH Group, the company, which offers innovative and flexible health coverage, has enjoyed success in a highly competitive industry.
After graduating from the University of Central Florida, McQuagge’s entire professional career has been spent in the insurance industry.
