Cleveland, Ohio (October 22, 2020) — LIG Solutions announces a partnership with the American Society of Journalists and Authors to offer its members, their families, their employees, and others committed to the ASJA mission access to exclusive healthcare insurance coverages.
Healthcare is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor, and neither are the insurance coverages offered through LIG Solutions. The exclusive offerings include a full suite of medical, dental, vision and disability coverages, as well as the new Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs) finalized in June 2019 for employers/employees. This program also includes access to information on the latest healthcare, personal wellness, and lifestyle trends.
“We want to provide access to quality healthcare products that fit the specific needs of ASJA’s members,” says Jason Farro, CEO of LIG Solutions. “The plans can be tailored to fit the individual needs of members, their families, and employees that off the shelf programs may not be able to provide.”
Designed as a tool for membership organizations to attract and retain members, the health insurance coverage offered through LIG utilizes plan options from many of the leading national carriers, and the program is designed to be a vehicle to promote healthier lifestyle choices and preventive care options for the organization’s membership.
“This is a wonderful and valuable asset for our membership across the country. LIG helps members identify and secure affordable and comprehensive health plans that meet the needs of self-employed writers and their family members,” says Holly Koenig, ASJA Executive Director.
Coverages are offered concierge style to members in a centralized portal, thus eliminating the hassle and cutting through the confusion that often accompanies shopping for healthcare insurance. The offerings – which are culled from nationally recognized carriers in all 50 states – offer solutions that are designed to meet specific health needs and budgets of individual members, their family members, and employees.
“Health care coverage is a concern of nearly every single American and their families, and this program is a valuable tool in a membership organization’s member growth and retention arsenal,” says Tim McNichols, Executive Director of Partnerships for LIG Solutions. “Organizations can leverage this exclusive member benefit to build an even stronger bond with their members. With the new Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs) program we can offer options for individual and family coverage suitable for nearly 100% of the membership, including i 1099/independent contractors and small businesses with or without fulltime, part-time and/or seasonal workers.”
ASJA Members can find more information about this program in the members-only section of the website under Benefits.
