WPS Health Solutions – Why Work With Us?


Health Care Keeps Changing. Our Commitment to You Never Will.

After World War II, more than 300,000 soldiers–13,000 of them wounded–returned home to Wisconsin, placing stress on the state’s health systems and shining a bright light on the need for affordable health insurance. WPS was born in 1946 to meet both of these demands.

More than seven decades later, WPS Health Solutions is still a leading not-for-profit health insurer in Wisconsin, and our services have grown to reach active-duty and retired military personnel, seniors, and families in Wisconsin, across the U.S., and around the world.

The expertise WPS has developed over the years has enabled the company to become a successful provider of administrative services for the U.S. government. WPS Government Health Administrators manages Medicare Part A and Part B benefits for millions of seniors in multiple states, and WPS Military and Veterans Health serves millions of members of the U.S. military and their families through TRICARE and Veterans Administration programs.

In addition to administrative work for the government, WPS Health Solutions offers insurance products through its WPS Health Insurance division, which includes:

  • WPS Health Insurance, the original brand, offers Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) health plans for individuals and groups, plus Medicare supplement plans and Medicare prescription drug plans for individuals who are eligible for Medicare.
  • Arise Health Plan, based in De Pere, offers HMO and point-of-service plans to the group and individual markets in eastern and north-central Wisconsin.
  • EPIC Specialty Benefits, a leader in non-medical group benefits for more than 25 years, offers term life, disability, dental, vision, and voluntary benefits throughout the Midwest.

With an emphasis on excellence and quality in all our lines of work, WPS demands high ethical standards for our employees. In 2018, the international Ethisphere® Institute named WPS one of the World's Most Ethical Companies® for the ninth straight year. WPS is also a responsible corporate citizen.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WPS Health Solutions (Omaha, NE) in March 2017.

    Interview

    For the interview I sat down with two Supervisors. They went through all the basic interview questions you'd expect, no curveballs.

    They as well asked for 3 professional references, and actually followed up!
