Health insurance remains one of the most expensive and frustrating employee benefits your business offers. Since the Affordable Care Act (ACA) passed, many have experienced price increases, limited plan options, and a lack of carrier availability.
The WBA heard your concerns and is proud to announce the new WBA Association Health Plan in conjunction with The Insurance Center of Wisconsin and underwritten by WPS Health Insurance. WBA membership is required of the business owner, there is health underwriting, and health insurance must be offered to all your employees.
WBA Association Health Plan
The Right Partner and the Right Plan for Your Business - Together with WPS Health Insurance, Arise Health Plan, and Aspirus Arise, Wisconsin Builders Association members can offer employees high-quality coverage and networks, affordable plans, and a wide range of benefit choices. These plans offer:
