Well Wisconsin Program
The $150 Well Wisconsin incentive will still be available to you and your enrolled spouse or domestic partner, but starting in 2017 all aspects of the Well Wisconsin Program, including payment of the incentive, will be administered by StayWell®, not your health plan.

Health plans can change provider networks each year. Check out the interactive map to confirm your health plan service area and provider network is available for 2017.
Health Plan Changes To Note
If you are enrolled in one of the health plans that will no longer be available, you will need to choose a different plan during It’s Your Choice open enrollment. Visit the Compare Plans above to help you select a new health plan.
The exclusion related to benefits or services based on gender identity was originally removed for 2017 due to a federal regulation.

Medically necessary services incurred from January 1 through January 31, 2017, are covered.
