Due to recent legislation, the Wausau Region Chamber of Commerce has developed a new Wausau Region Chamber Association Health Plan as an added value to membership, according to a chamber news release. Aspirus Arise and WPS Health Plan are the insurance carriers, with Ansay & Associates LLC serving as the consultant/broker.
