Enrollment Status/Self Service

Employees are responsible for keeping their enrollment status, including births and marriages, current through the City's Self Service program at www.milwaukee.gov/selfservice.

Employees who do not enroll in the City's Health plan must complete the Health Waiver Form below for Affordable Care Act (ACA) reporting purposes.  Please return the Waiver Form to DER Benefits Division, Room 701, City Hall.

For Medical and Pharmacy Questions

Employees that have medical or pharmacy benefit questions regarding unpaid bills or problems with service should call the health or pharmacy plan first.  DO NOT call Employee Relations until the appropriate plan has been contacted.  If the situation cannot be resolved through the plan provider, Employee Benefits will attempt to assist with resolving the problem.  Remember to document all phone conversations with dates, times and names and save any email correspondence.  Employee Benefits will ask members for this information to try to resolve the issue.
