My NASW Health Choices Program is a member benefit offering a one-stop health insurance shopping service that connects NASW members, and also their family members and clients, with licensed health benefits consultants who can help them navigate the complicated and time-consuming process of finding and enrolling in major medical, dental and/or vision insurance plans that meet their needs.
We’ve partnered with Augeo Benefits, formerly Benefit Protect, to bring NASW members timely and knowledgeable assistance in understanding and navigating both public and private health insurance options, including options newly available through the federal and state exchanges under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Under ACA, most individuals are required to have minimum essential health insurance as of January 1, 2014, and with limited exceptions individuals cannot be denied coverage. Open enrollment for health insurance began October 1.
Through My NASW Health Choices Program, NASW members will have access to major A or A-rated national insurance carriers, including Humana, Aetna, United Healthcare, Assurant and many others.
With enrollment open for health insurance across the country, we hope that this member resource provides an additional layer of security and information and help with insurance options, health reform and government assistance programs.
The My NASW Health Choices Program has 300 knowledgeable benefits consultants available by phone to speak with members about coverage options and their eligibility for a government subsidy toward their health insurance premiums. And, typically, members can enroll right over the phone.
If you are an NASW member, simply call (866) 206-8509 to speak with a licensed NASW Health Choices Program representative Monday- Friday, 9 am – 9 pm Eastern Time/ 6 am – 6 pm Pacific Standard Time. If you are not an NASW member, click here for more information about NASW membership.
Once enrolled, you will have individual coverage directly through the insurance carrier. My NASW Health Choices Program is not group health insurance through NASW or NASW Assurance Services.
Once enrolled, you still have access to the Health Choices Program representatives who can assist with questions, policy renewals or plan changes. For more information, visit the My NASW Health Choices Program at www.mynaswhealthchoices.org. Or read our Frequently Asked Questions.
