That’s why AGC of Washington focuses as much as we do on our Health Benefit Trust. If you’re not already part of the Trust — or even if you are and just want a quick refresher — the program is an association plan designed with our members in mind. Our goal is to help members attract and retain workforce with a strong benefits package that meets the needs of both employee and employer. As part of that, the Trust offers programs specifically tailored to the construction industry, such as a dollar bank to provide employees with continued coverage during ebbs in the construction cycle.
You can also count on the Trust to provide all the basic services and consistency you would expect from a benefits service. The program is co-sponsored by three AGC chapters, a group that includes us at AGC of Washington along with Inland Northwest AGC and AGC of Alaska. We’re underwritten as a single large-employer benefit plan, an arrangement that gives our member firms the flexibility they need to find coverage along with a stable risk pool to navigate the often-shifting world of healthcare reform. Should you need guidance within that, the Trust gives you access to local agents for direct support, as well as a broad network of health care providers and hospitals.
Our medical and prescription coverage comes primarily from UnitedHealthcare Multi-Choice, a broad portfolio with plenty of options for the modern workforce. The Trust also offers a selection of plans for vision and dental — including orthodontia — coverage from Standard Insurance Company.
