Manufacturers Association Launches Insurance Trust

The Indiana Manufacturers Association is creating a group insurance trust through which members with two to 50 employees can offer health insurance and drug coverage to their workers.

The Trust will be administered with the help of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. The non profit group insurance trust will be governed by a board of trustees made up of presidents and CEO’s of Indiana Manufacturers Association members.

IMA President Patrick J. Kiely stated in the announcement, “We’re extremely pleased to partner with Anthem to provide our membership with a private-sector solution to their healthcare needs. We offer simple plan administration, discounts through Anthem’s robust networks, and flexible plan design to meet each company’s benefit package goals.”
