WHAT IS NAM HEALTH CARE?

As part of its charge to advance the success of the more than 12 million men and women who make things in America and their families, the National Association of Manufacturers has collaborated with Mercer (www.mercer.com) to develop an association health plan “NAM Health Care” that meets the unique health care needs of manufacturers.

Our mission is to provide our member companies with medical, dental, vision and life plans built specifically for small to medium-sized manufacturers, including lower premiums, reduced administrative costs and more coverage options to help meet the needs of their employees. The NAM Health Care (www.namhealthcare.com) plans may save manufacturers on their annual health insurance costs.

With NAM Health Care manufacturers will have access to preferred provider organization networks and Mercer’s Multiple Employer Solutions. Mercer’s Multiple Employer Solutions is a one-stop shop for our manufacturing member companies. The solution makes the benefits buying process easy for our members and their employees.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

NAM Health Care will be offered all across the country* and will offer an AHP in regions where state law supports the offering and affinity plans for all other states. We have selected Mercer’s web-based onboarding process where member companies can get to the information most important to them. Information such as, “What benefits are available to me?”, “What does it cost me?” and “How do I roll it out to my employees?” The NAM has created a format to provide an incredible member experience both for the employer and employees.

The onboarding solution will allow member companies to do the following:

·         Learn about the multiple cost-saving Fortune 1,000 product suite, including medical, dental, vision and life plans available to them.

·         Request a quote for the tailored benefits they’d like to offer to their employees.

·         Review quotes and purchase competitive benefit plans.

·         Select plan designs with access to employee contributions tools to help develop an acceptable net costs for the membership companies.

* Plans are not available to member employers in all states.

NAM Health Care is an industry-based Association Health Plan (AHP) that’s fully ACA-compliant, administered by Mercer and sponsored by The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), of which Wood Products Manufacturers Association is an affiliate member.
