Health Insurance for ThedaCare Patients is Here!

ThedaCare has announced it will be an in-network provider with Common Ground Healthcare Co-operative for 2018 plans on HealthCare.gov.

Enroll with us any time from November 1 to December 15.

postcrescent.com Common Ground serves 19 counties in eastern Wisconsin, according to its website, from Racine County all the way north to Door County.

[10/30/17]   Here's some good news for people with ACA (Obamacare) plans. Thedacare will announce that they are contracting with Common Ground. They sure waited until the last minute but the result is good.

[08/22/17]   The touch of fall in the air brings thoughts of back to school, football and trees changing colors. It is also the time people start to think about their new options with health insurance. Open enrollment for Medicare and ACA (Obamacare) is just around the corner. The dates for open enrollment are as follows

Medicare - October 15 - December 7
ACA (under age 65) - November 1 - December 15

During this time you are able to make changes to your health insurance. You can change plans within your current company or you can change companies. Whatever changes you make will become effective on January 1, 2018

Medicare members with Advantage Plans will receive a description of the changes to their plan, usually through the mail. This is called the Annual Notice of Change (ANOC). Please read this carefully. You may also want to check with your agent to see what he/she knows about new plans, etc. These can be discussed anytime after October 1.

Individual/Family (ACA, Obamacare) members will receive a letter from their current plan stating what the new premiums and benefits will be if they decide to continue their plan. This year, in Wisconsin, many people will be notified that their current insurance company will no longer be participating in the Marketplace so their plan is ending. You will want to call your agent for an appointment to pick a new plan.
