WSTA Health/Dental/Vision Insurance Update

kaiserGroupLogoAn email was sent out announcing our new partnership with The Keiser Group. The office received many calls from interested members and it became evident we needed to clear up some confusion.

First, this past summer the association’s Board of Directors authorized a name change from the California Construction Trucking Association to the Western States Trucking Association. The change was made to reflect our growing diverse membership that is engaged in every mode of trucking operations. The new association name is on your invoices/statements and any other correspondence sent by us – don’t throw them away!

As mentioned in my letter to membership last month, The Keiser Group (not affiliated with Kaiser-Permanente) is the associations new employee benefit architect insurance service provider, specializing in the unique needs and risks associated with the transportation industry and your employees. They focus on budgetary control, ACA health insurance compliance and benefit portfolios that facilitate employer objectives. They are a Southern California based company with nationally recognized expertise in cost containment and benefit structure. On the pages attached, is information concerning ACA health insurance and a great dental program.

We are all aware of the rising costs of medical and dental insurance plans. The Keiser Group has restructured our current dental plan, to include higher benefits and lowered costs, along with the inclusion of full vision coverage. Please watch for more information to improve your current and future benefits plans.

The 2016 Open Enrollment Period for ACA compliance begins November 1, 2015 through January 31, 2016. If you don’t have insurance now and you don’t enroll during this 90-day period, you will not be able to buy guarantee issue individual health insurance unless you have a Qualifying Event.
