UNDATED (WSAU) WPS Health Insurance has lost a second major government contract this year.
They had been processing Medicare and Medicaid claims for the Midwest. That contact has now been awarded to an Indianapolis company. Those claims were not being processed out of the WPS office in Wausau. They were handled in Madison and Illinois.
Last July WPS lost a military health insurance contract that was handled in Wausau. They were a subcontractor for TriWest Health Care of Phoenix. That contact was awarded to UnitedHeath, and the work that was being processed locally will end in April. WPS says it’s still considering staff cuts and other changes to its Wausau work force once that contract ends.
