Aspirus Arise, a health plan serving 20 counties in north-central Wisconsin is changing its name to Aspirus Health Plan, effective January 2021. At the same time, the organization will implement health plan enhancements intended to improve the member experience to encourage greater engagement with the health care system.
Beginning in January 2021, Aspirus Health Plan will offer flexibility for large, self-funded employers by working with select stop-loss carrier and PBM (pharmacy benefit manager) service vendors, and provide a significant discount on workers’ compensation-related office visit fees when a member visits an Aspirus Occupational Health facility for a work-related injury. Aspirus will also extend call center hours to 7 a.m. through 7 p.m., Monday through Friday; and will also partner with Navitus and PreferredOne, who will help to improve the overall member experience by processing prescription drug benefits and providing enhanced customer service.
As part of the rebranding, Aspirus will launch a new website, AspirusHealthPlan.com. The current website, AspirusArise.com, will be rebranded with a new look over the next few months. Membership cards reflecting the new name and logo will be sent to current members in December 2020.
Aspirus Arise was founded in 216. It is a joint venture between Aspirus, a non-profit community-directed health system, and WPS Health Plan, Inc., a health insurer. Aspirus serves communities through four hospitals in Michigan and six hospitals in Wisconsin, 50 clinics, home health and hospice care, pharmacies, critical care and air-medical transport, medical goods, nursing homes and a broad network of physicians. Aspirus Arise offers health insurance products within the Aspirus health system service area.
