FALL brings colorful foliage - and the seasonal FLU!

We urge all men and women across NYS to get their flu vaccines as the best prevention of contracting the flu - and its dangerous complications. It may become more complex and confusing as our health care The Center for Disease Control has facts that can be shared in each Fund and its members. With COVID still a threat, let’s take positive steps to reduce this other risk factor. Please click this CDC link below for info, recommended actions, and signs you may use to promote this in your Fund.

Testimonials

"The BAC Local #2NY Health Plan has actually lowered health premiums while increasing benefits offered to its members. This is a result of utilizing various products endorsed by the NYLHCA. I know that when a firm is finally endorsed by the Alliance, they have survived a comprehensive evaluation against leaders in their industry. This saves my Fund the expense and time of doing these exhausting searches on our own. Perhaps one of the best benefits of the Alliance is that it creates a forum for administrators and trustees to share best practices and discuss relevant issues impacting our members and their families."

Local #2NY/VT Joint Benefit Funds

"As many of you already know, the Laborers' Local 157 Health Fund has continued to provide some of the best heath care benefits in the state.  All for a minimal employer contribution rate.  We have been able to achieve this not just through the hard work of our membership and service providers but with the help of the NYLHCA. We have taken advantage of the NYLHCA's collective negotiating power.  Many of our current vendor contracts reflect the savings.  I myself have been able to learn a lot by using the other administrators in the NYLHCA to establish best practices.  The endorsed fiduciary insurance product through the endorsed J.A. Mariano Agency also saves our Pension, Annuity and Training Funds a great deal of money."

Laborers' Local 157 Benefit Funds

“Plumbers and Steamfitters Local No. 7 has been a member of the New York Labor Health Care Alliance since it’s inception in 1993. The purpose forming this organization, and our joining, was an attempt to have more of an impact in controlling the escalation of health care costs. By joining with other health and welfare plans and negotiating for everyday products inherent to our mission such as medical coverage, prescription drug coverage, fiduciary liability insurance, etc. we, along with the other members of the coalition, have been able to reduce our plan expenditures and medical costs. Fiduciary Liability insurance alone represented a 40% reduction in premium.”
