Your sentence has TWO subjects, viz., membership and coverage.  Therefore, you have a plural subject and that requires a plural form of the verb.  "Is" is a singular for of the infinitive, "to be".  The plural form of "to be" is "are".  "Are" is the correct verb to use in this sentence.

The correct verb is "are" (plural) because the subject (i.e. "membership and coverage") is plural.
