ASTA to offer health insurance as a member benefit

In case you missed the announcement at the ASTA Small Business Network Conference in Colorado, let us share the good news – last week, ASTA finalized an agreement to begin offering health insurance to its membership in 39 states through a so-called "association health plan" by the end of the year.

The creation of a plan of this kind has been a frequent request of ASTA members over the past several years, as it could allow individuals and small business owners to obtain coverage at group rates much more favorable than if purchased individually. Under the new ASTA program, coverage at favorable rates will initially be available to both individuals and small business owners, and their families, to members in 39 states.
