MARSHFIELD — Security Health Plan of Wisconsin Inc., an insurance company with a strong reputation in rural Wisconsin, is taking its first steps into becoming a statewide health insurance provider.
In June Security Health Plan began offering a Medicare Supplement throughout Wisconsin. A Medicare Supplement is especially appealing to people who are becoming Medicare eligible because it can save them money and offer financial security by covering expenses not included in the standard Medicare plan.
Medicare Supplement is also a great choice for people who travel extensively or live part-time outside of Wisconsin because it provides the same benefits when its members use doctors or other health care providers anywhere in the United States.
“We’re especially excited that we can bring Security Health Plan to Wisconsinites who have not previously been able to consider our plans,” said John Kelly, chief marketing and operations officer for Security Health Plan. “We’ve heard from many of our current members who wish Security Health Plan was available for their Medicare-eligible relatives and friends living in Milwaukee, Green Bay, and Hudson. Now it is.”
Based in Marshfield and part of the Marshfield Clinic Health System, Security Health Plan has developed a stellar reputation for its popular Medicare Advantage plans. In fact, those Medicare Advantage plans were ranked 17th in the nation out of 408 plans in the National Committee for Quality Assurance Medicare Health Insurance Plan Rankings for 2014-2015.
“This is a natural extension of the high quality Medicare products we have been offering residents in our traditional service area,” Kelly said.
In addition to the basic Medicare Supplement, consumers can also choose from six optional coverages or “riders” that best fit their personal needs and budget. Complete information about Security Health Plan’s Medicare Supplement can be found online at securityhealth.org/
