Revised Wisconsin Public Employer Group Life Insurance Plan Booklet

The Wisconsin Public Employers Group Life Insurance brochure (ET-2101) has been updated. Minor changes to the language clarify current policy. The revised booklet includes the following policy changes:

  • Changes to the Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) limitations and requirements (Sections 6B and 6C) reflect new contract language approved by the Group Insurance Board (GIB). In addition, the GIB strengthened the AD&D subsequent loss language (Section 6A) to clarify that only one AD&D claim payment will be made for each loss or loss of use of the same limb.
  • Revisions to the Living Benefits provisions (Section 8) eliminate benefits that are payable to the chronically ill under the confinement or hospice options. The Living Benefits coverage is available only to employees diagnosed with a terminal condition with a life expectancy of 12 months or less. The GIB approved this change to ensure that the Living Benefits provisions comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
  • New language clarifies that employees may continue coverage while on military leave (Section 9A.)
