Insurance

MPSD has always taken great pride in providing a quality insurance program at affordable rates for employees. It's been a strong and steady program with very little change over the years, despite the rapidly rising costs of healthcare. However, this year we learned that our health care spending is rising at a much more rapid pace than it has in years past.

The Manitowoc Public School District, the Finance Committee, and the Board of Education have determined that change is necessary to remain fiscally responsible.  

Effective July 1, 2017, there will be changes to the insurance program.  To keep staff informed of these changes, there will be information posted on this page frequently.  

Note June 1st, 2017: The Aurora Pharmacy services at Manty Health and Wellness Center (601 Reed Avenue, Manitowoc, WI 54220) location are moving. The pharmacy will close at 5:30 pm on Friday, June 2, 2017 and transition services to a new location at 9:00 am on Monday, June 5, 2017.  The pharmacy hours of operation will remain the same.  The new address is less than three miles away and is located within the Aurora Clinic.
