MADISON, Wis.—July 20, 2021—WPS Health Insurance announced today that it is working with Auxiant to provide top-tier administrative services for Wisconsin employers that self-fund their group health plans.
WPS Health Insurance and WPS Health Plan offer Administrative Services Only (ASO) products for employers that self-fund their employee benefit plan. Self-funded plans are typically administered by a third party, like WPS. The services available from WPS can be tailored to each employer to meet specific needs.
“This new partnership adds value to our group health plan product line and allows employers across Wisconsin to continue to choose WPS with confidence,” said Jeremy Ott, Vice President of Health Insurance Economics for WPS Health Insurance. “By partnering with Auxiant, we can help employers administer their self-funded group health plans more effectively than ever before.”
Joseph Holt, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Auxiant, added, “WPS is well respected, and we are confident employer groups will recognize the value of a WPS self-funded product powered by Auxiant. Our data-driven approach will empower companies and organizations to help improve health care quality for group members and lower medical spend through proven cost-containment practices.”
The updated ASO product is available to employers now with effective dates beginning Jan. 1, 2022. Local health insurance agents can assist employers, or employers can contact WPS group sales directly at 866-297-4977 or visit wpshealth.com/aso.
