Waukesha County Area Schools Cooperative Chooses WEA Trust as Health Insururer

$1M in premium savings and Vitality wellness program win new client

MADISON, Wisconsin – The WEA Trust will welcome the Waukesha County Area Schools Cooperative and its 2,400 employees and family members as new customers effective July 1, 2016.
“We’re thrilled to have the Cooperative as a client,” said Jon Klett, the Trust’s Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Product Development. “The Trust was created in recognition of the vital role educators play in our community, and we’re proud to be their health insurer.”
The Trust was able to save the Cooperative more than $1 million in premium. Those savings along with the new Vitality wellness program made WEA Trust the choice for the Cooperative.
“WEA Trust represented the best solution on the table after a thorough evaluation,” said Nancy Cirra, Senior Account Executive from M3 Insurance Solutions, who is the Cooperative’s insurance consultant. “The fact WEA Trust has Vitality was a feather in their cap. The Cooperative is extremely engaged in wellness.”
Vitality is a new world-class wellness program WEA Trust will offer to its customers starting this summer. Employees from the Cooperative will also have access to Amwell, the Trust’s telehealth service. Amwell lets members connect with doctors 24/7 on a smart phone, tablet, or desktop computer.
The Cooperative consists of 10 districts: Arrowhead Union High School District, School District of Hartford Jt. #1, Hartland Lakeside School District, Lake Country School District, Merton Community School District, North Lake School District, Pewaukee School District, Richmond School District, Stone Bank School, and Swallow School District.

The WEA Trust provides group health coverage and administrative services to public employers throughout Wisconsin. The not-for-profit WEA Trust was created in 1970 to insure Wisconsin school district employees. Today, the WEA Trust offers its top-rated service and quality benefits to all state, county, and municipal groups.
