As mentioned earlier this week, the Affordable Care Act’s first open enrollment period ends March 31, 2014. As with any new, large-scale program, fraudsters and identity thieves may try to take advantage of consumers who may be unfamiliar with the specifics of the program.

Do you live in Racine, Green Bay, or Wausau? Do you ever visit Racine, Green Bay, or Wausau? Well you should! For a limited time only, until March 31, WPS and Arise Health Plan have installed a kiosk at a major mall in each of these cities.
Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and hearts are everywhere—on cards, on clothing, on TV, and many other places. That makes right now the perfect time to mention that February is National Heart Disease Awareness Month. Heart disease is a real concern that impacts millions of Americans.
Valentine’s Day is coming up. With all the talk of hearts and flowers and chocolates, we thought it might be a good idea to talk about ways to keep your heart healthy and strong.
When taking on any new behavioral change, challenges are expected. I feel one of the most important keys to keeping these challenges from crippling your goals is to surround yourself with support.
