Security Health Plan files to serve Menominee County on Healthcare.gov
Security Health Plan has filed to serve Menominee County on Healthcare.gov for 2018 after state regulators reached out with concerns that the county may lack an insurer next year, a spokesman told Wisconsin Health News Tuesday.
Molina Healthcare announced earlier this month that it planned to exit Healthcare.gov in Wisconsin. Molina is the only company now serving Menominee.
According to federal data, 47 people selected a plan on the exchange in Menominee this year.
“Knowing that it’s immediate adjacent to our service area, we looked at it as an opportunity to meet our mission,” said Marty Anderson, chief marketing officer at Security.
Anderson said their filing is still going through OCI approval and then will head to the Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services for approval.
According to a CMS map released last week, Menominee was one of two counties in the nation projected to be without a carrier next year on the exchange. The other county is in Ohio.
