Important Announcement for Clients with Network Health

If you have Network Health Plan, please read this update.

You may have already read information about Network Health Plan and ThedaCare terming their relationship next July 2016. Our advice is to not worry yet.

  • If you a small group and have Network Health Plan, nothing will change before July 2016

  • If you have a Network Health’s Medicare Advantage Plan, nothing changes before July 2016

  • If you have a pre-ACA individual health plan with Network Health, again, no changes before July 2016

It’s too early to tell what will happen with the negotiations.  Until it’s a firm deal, anything can change in our world of the new Affordable Care Act.  Stay tuned, but relax and know nothing is changing yet.
