Dean Health Insurance- Prevea360 Health Plan


What’s New for 2016

Prevea360 Health Plan is underwritten by Dean Health Insurance, so you know it’s a plan Wisconsinites have come to know and trust. What makes Prevea360 so special is its proprietary network of hospitals, physicians and ancillary providers that is based on Prevea Health’s multi-specialty physician group and HSHS partner hospitals, including St. Mary’s and St. Vincent’s Hospitals in Green Bay and St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan, as well as other in-network hospitals in Oconto, Manitowoc and Door counties. This collaboration between health care experts, hospital partners, and insurance provider as an integrated health system leads to a better, more affordable experience for our members and patients—one that is centered around you.

Our goal as a health care system is to keep our members happy and healthy. Preventive care and wellness are integral parts of our care philosophy. Prevea360—a better kind of health care.

The Living Healthy program returns via WebMd, providing valuable health information, tools for managing your health, and support when you have questions. You can trust that our content is timely and credible.  Watch for more details, coming soon.
