State Employers: Master List of Employees Opting Out of State Group Health Insurance Available
ETF has distributed the master list of employees who opted out of the State of Wisconsin Group Health Insurance Program as of December 31, 2015. Employees who were not participating members of the State of Wisconsin Group Health Insurance Program as of December 31, 2015 will never be eligible for the opt-out provision or incentive in the future.
The University of Wisconsin (UW) and University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics (UWHC) can access the master list through their SFTP folder. Open the file labeled 2015 Opt Out Master List. The Department of Administration will distribute the list to all other state agencies by the week of February 22.
Employers may search for employees on the list using the Search button on the spreadsheet. Employers can search for an employee by entering the employee’s name and/or date of birth. The columns of the master list are arranged by the employee’s ETF Member ID, Social Security number, last name, first name, date of birth and employer number. If employers open the spreadsheet and get a security warning message, simply click Enable Content to begin using the spreadsheet.
