Health Tradition health plan purchased

Changes are on the way for a health plan that serves our area.

WEA Insurance is purchasing the Health Tradition health plan from Mayo Clinic Health System.

It was announced in August of 2017 that Heath Tradition would exit the market place exchange.

With today’s announcement, it ensures the health plan stays available in Western Wisconsin.

“Essentially the commercial market offers a broad base of folks that we don’t have access to right now and from an insurance carrier side, obviously the ability to spread risk and get into different markets is always an important thing,” said Joe Kruse, Regional Chair with Mayo Clinic Health System.

Health Tradition eligible customers can begin signing up immediately.
