To be eligible to join the group health insurance program, an employer must:

  • Already participate in the Wisconsin Retirement System, or

The process of joining the WPE Program takes about 120 days to complete. All groups are eligible to enroll effective January 1, April 1, July 1, or October 1 each year.
