Are You Looking for Group Health Insurance as a Membership Benefit?
It’s no surprise that rising healthcare costs are a concern for all North Dakota residents, especially those who are self-employed such as farmers. We are considering a group health-insurance benefit for members as a way to help reduce healthcare costs for individuals who are not yet 65.
Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) has agreed to look at offering a group plan based on member interest. To determine if this benefit is possible, the NDSGA needs as many people as possible to provide basic information to show their interest. The stronger the interest among members is, the better chance there is of realizing savings on health-insurance rates.
Surveys need to be completed by September 1, 2016, to determine if there is enough interest for BCBS to offer the group plan. The more interest, the greater likelihood that rate savings could be achieved. Open enrollment would begin in November 2016, so prompt action is required.
The North Dakota Soybean Growers Association is a statewide, not-for-profit, member-driven organization. We exist to conduct legislative activities in Bismarck and Washington, D.C. to improve the sustainable prosperity of its members and the entire soybean industry. The North Dakota organization is one of 26 soybean-producing states affiliated with the American Soybean Association.
Creating partnerships to proactively improve the profitability and representation of all North Dakota soybean growers and to develop quality community leaders.
