Frequently Asked Questions

Regional Enrollment Networks

One of Wisconsin’s most significant strategies to assist Wisconsin residents with enrolling in the appropriate public or private health insurance coverage is through 11 Regional Enrollment Networks (RENs). The RENs are comprised of various community partners, health care providers, income maintenance consortia, managed care entities, and other key stakeholders. These RENs were developed at the local level and may be different from each other depending on the needs of the local region.  Additional information about Wisconsin's RENs is available on the Enrollment for Health (E4Health) Wisconsin website.
