About Us

Your Reliable Partner in Benefit Plan Management

Our Story and Our Mission

Cooney Health was founded in 2003 without a single client and has since grown into one of the largest, independent benefit firms in the state.

Service to our existing customers is our number one priority. We have many years’ experience specializing in group benefits. Our staff is dedicated, knowledgeable, and caring. We are fortunate to be serving some of the finest organizations in their fields. We live in the area and are active in the community.

Matt Cooney, the Founder and President, was designated as a Certified Employee Benefit Specialist (CEBS) by The Wharton School of Business and the International Foundation of Employee Benefits. Matt holds his Massachusetts Life and Health license. He credits his loyal and hard-working staff for the firm’s success. Matt resides in Wellesley and enjoys traveling to Cape Cod and national parks with his wife and two children.



Cooney Health is proud of the feedback we have received from our clients over the years for the quality of our work and the commitment to their success. Below are a few testimonials from a sampling of our clients.

A client’s employee writes:

I have been meaning to let you know that I find Cooney Health invaluable. They have been very helpful to me navigating all the bills I have received for my hospital stay. They have made an overwhelming situation more manageable and respond very quickly to my emails. 

I wanted to provide this positive feedback as I am most appreciative of this resource. Cooney Health cuts right through the red tape and saves me hours on the phone trying to get a decision maker. Thank you for providing this resource to our employees.

A client’s employee writes:

My Mother was diagnosed with cancer. Cooney Health saved us. They handled all the complicated and overwhelming things that are the norm in our health care system. 

Whenever help was needed all we had to do was reach out to them and they handled it professionally and more importantly compassionately. Nothing that we asked for was ignored or dismissed. Thank you, Cooney Health.

A client writes

Our corporation is very happy with selecting Cooney Health as our benefit advisor. The customer service from the team has been superb. The overall cost savings and the quality of plans that have been provided have been excellent.

The open enrollment process was quick and easy and very user friendly. The employees are very happy with the plans you provided them and even happier with the cost reductions. I would like to personally thank you and your staff for all that you have done.
