Wisconsin Physicians Service Insurance Corporation (WPS) will continue its partnership with International SOS Government Services, Inc. through a new Defense Health Agency contract for the TRICARE Overseas Program (TOP).

In support of the contract, WPS will provide claims processing and associated customer service for health claims relating to U.S. military personnel serving overseas. The new five-year contract starts Sept. 1, 2016, and includes a one-year transition starting on September 1, 2015. WPS has been a subcontractor for International SOS and the TOP since 2010.

“We are extremely pleased with this new agreement. It validates the hard work our employees perform every day to support the TRICARE Overseas Program,” said Brian Brugger, Executive Vice President of WPS Military and Veterans Health. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with International SOS and our long history of servicing overseas beneficiaries, providers, and Government stakeholders.”

Under the new contract award, International SOS will continue to deliver health care services to U.S. active-duty service members, their family members, retirees and other TRICARE-eligible beneficiaries in nearly 200 countries and territories outside the United States and District of Columbia.
