ETF-Administered Wisconsin Public Employer Health Insurance Program
ETF and its Office of Strategic Health Policy recently learned that the League of Wisconsin Municipalities (LWM) issued a misleading letter to its members on July 17 that alluded to uncertainties about the future of the ETF-administered Wisconsin Public Employers Group Health Insurance Program. The ETF-administered program is not changing for 2018; it will continue to be offered in 2018 and beyond.
The July 17 message also introduced a new product that LWM is offering with WEA Trust that they are calling the “WPE Group Health Plan”. Using the ETF-administered program name for this private offering can be confusing for members. ETF has asked the parties involved to rename their program.
Feel free to contact ETF at myETFEmployerInsurance@etf.wi.gov with any questions about the LWM message, or if you would like to be included in future ETF opportunities for benefit program input. If you would like to discuss the matter further with ETF staff, simply request a phone conversation and ETF staff will follow up with you.
