School Districts' Insurance Purchasing Co-Op Picks Carrier

An insurance-purchasing consortium made up of nine area school districts has reached a decision on picking a new health insurance carrier.

According to a news release from Sturgeon Bay School District Superintendent Joe Stutting, the Door Kewaunee Health Insurance Purchasing Cooperative Board of Directors reached a unanimous decision Tuesday to move its health benefits from WEA Trust to United Healthcare.

The move is expected to save the co-op close to $2 million without changing the plan design.

Other districts in the consortium are Algoma, Denmark, Gibraltar, Kewaunee, Luxemburg Casco, Sevastopol, Southern Door and Washington Island.

Proposals were submitted by 17 different carriers and evaluated based on rates, contract provisions, service and support.

Cindy Van Asten, senior account executive and partner at M3 Insurance, represented the co-op throughout the proposal process.

"In 12 years, the Door Kewaunee Cooperative hasn't been able to get a competitive bid on their medical and health insurance," Van Asten said in a statement. "Now that they're recognized as a cooperative by the state of Wisconsin, we're thrilled to be able to help them save millions of dollars on benefits while continuing to provide districts' employees with the best options available."
