Blue Cross Blue Shield Named Carrier for Health Insurance Consortium
Lincoln – Law firms of all sizes face significant challenges in relation to the affordability of health insurance.
The Nebraska State Bar Association has established a new health insurance option for its members, the NSBA Health Insurance Consortium. The Consortium will consist of multiple employers, with NSBA membership, pooling together to obtain affordable health insurance coverage on terms similar to those currently available only to large employers. The NSBA is pleased to announce that Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska has been selected as the Insurance Carrier for the Consortium.
Each employer in the Consortium has the option of selecting the type of health plan or plans that works best for its employees (high deductible plan vs. low deductible plan, etc.). There will be seven benefit packages to choose from. Each employer can offer up to two plans to their employees. Employers will also have the option of selecting “narrow networks” to achieve additional savings. In addition to staff, employers participating in the Consortium may offer family and dependent coverage to their employees.
Informational Meetings
In the coming weeks an informational video will be posted on the NSBA’s website (www.nebar.com) which will answer questions about eligibility, potential premiums and coverage options. The NSBA’s broker, Aon Risk Solutions, will be offering a series of informational meetings across the state of Nebraska. Thanks in advance for joining us for any of the following events.
