Wisconsin residents now have another health care provider choice
Madison, WI — Arise Health Plan, a subsidiary of WPS Health Insurance, has reached an agreement with Aurora Health Care to offer a new provider option to Wisconsin residents in the eastern part of the state.
“We’re very pleased that Aurora has agreed to work with us to bring our members yet another choice for the expert health care they deserve,” said Mark Minsloff, COO of Arise Health Plan. “Aurora is a really great addition to our network of top-quality health care providers in eastern Wisconsin. I know having them in our network will be beneficial for our members.”
Aurora has 15 hospitals, 172 clinics and more than 1,500 employed physicians within its network, as well as affiliations with 3,000 independent physicians. Aurora BayCare Medical Center is its tertiary hospital in northern Wisconsin, which offers a broad range of services and specialists.
“Our integrated system of hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, physicians and home health services provides a seamless experience for patients,” said Rick Klein, executive vice president of growth and market development for Aurora Health Care. “I think Arise members will find this attractive.”
WPS Health Insurance, parent company of Arise Health Plan, will also be adding Aurora Health Care to its network sometime this year, although no official date has been set.
