For many years, Premera has been the health insurance company providing WEA Select insurance plans. This year, the WEA Board determined that it was important to put the WEA Select insurance plans up for a competitive bid process. In that process, it was determined to move to two providers to maintain ongoing competitiveness and the best options for WEA members around the state. Starting in November 2017, WEA Select insurance plans will be provided by Aetna and UnitedHealthcare. After October 31, 2017, WEA Select Plans will no longer be provided by Premera.
