MARSHFIELD – Security Health Plan of Wisconsin, Inc., will offer its SimplyOne plan in nine additional counties for 2022. SimplyOne first hit the individual and family plan market in January of 2021 for people living in eight central Wisconsin counties. This plan, which is designed to provide cost savings and includes extra benefits, will now be expanded to nine additional counties in northern and central Wisconsin: Adams, Clark, Florence, Forest, Juneau, Menominee, Price, Shawano and Waupaca.
SimplyOne is available through the Federally-facilitated Exchange for 2022 and highlights the powerful partnership between Marshfield Clinic Health System and Security Health Plan. SimplyOne members will have access to Marshfield Clinic Health System as the primary in-network health care provider. Marshfield Clinic provides access to more than 170 specialties, 10 hospitals, including the region’s only children hospital, and more than 60 clinic locations.
SimplyOne is also available to residents in the following counties: Langlade, Lincoln, Marathon, Oneida, Portage, Taylor, Vilas and Wood.
Like all of Security’s individual and family plans, SimplyOne members will have 100% coverage for unlimited Care My Way® visits and a $30 quarterly credit for over-the-counter items and supplies. In 2022, the Care My Way benefit will be expanded to offer 24/7 service and will be available in all 50 states.
Members with a plan from Security will also receive enhanced diabetic coverage, including a $25 monthly cap on select insulins, and select diabetic testing supplies will be covered at 100%. New for 2022, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) will be covered at 100%. SSRIs are prescribed for symptoms associated with anxiety, depression or other mood disorders.

- 30% off select eye wear from Marshfield Clinic Health System locations.

“With a wide-choice of plan options that emphasize better health and service, consumers can choose the insurance coverage that best fits their health care needs and the health care needs of their family,” Security Health Plan Chief Growth Officer Jenny Shermo said.
Beginning Nov. 1, 2021, consumers will be able to compare plan options, calculate what tax credit they might qualify for, and enroll in a plan at www.securityhealth.org/myplans. Only insurance companies approved as a Qualified Health Plan are eligible to offer coverage through the Marketplace. Purchasing a plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace is the only way consumers can receive a tax credit to help meet health care costs.
Security Health Plan Director of Health Plan Products Erin Long reminds everyone of the increased tax credits made available to Marketplace enrollees by President Biden’s American Rescue Plan Act.
“The American Rescue Plan Act adjusted the premium tax credit guidelines for all 2022 Marketplace plans,” Long said. “This means, regardless of income, enrollees will not have to pay more than 8.5% of their household’s annual income for the second-lowest-cost Silver plan available on the Marketplace. Even if someone is already paying a low or even no premium, they may be able to get a plan with lower out-of-pocket costs.”
The Open Enrollment Period for 2022 is Nov. 1, 2021, through Jan. 15, 2022. For coverage effective Jan. 1, 2022, consumers must enroll by Dec. 15, 2021. Any enrollments between Dec. 16, 2021, and Jan. 15, 2022, will have a Feb. 1, 2022, effective date.
