Now is a great time to consider joining the Wisconsin Public Employers (WPE) Group Health Insurance program, authorized by the Group Insurance Board and available to employers participating in the WRS, and local government employers that do not participate in the WRS and are separate from Social Security entities. The program is administered by the Department of Employee Trust Funds and offers the following benefits:
- Competitive health insurance premium rates.
- One-stop shopping for access to many provider networks statewide.
- A successful prescription drug benefit program administered by a pharmacy benefits manager (PBM) credited with saving state and local employers millions of dollars in prescription drug costs.
