LINCOLN – For the first time, individual farm and ranch families in Nebraska will have the opportunity to join Nebraska Farm Bureau’s new large group Association Health Plan (AHP) and avoid the higher cost of premiums in the individual health insurance market.
The formation of the new large group AHP for its farmer, rancher and, agribusiness members and a new partnership with Medica will be the carrier of health insurance products within the plan.
Officially named the “Nebraska Farm Bureau Member Health Plan”, will be open to qualifying NEFB members and can sign up for this health care plan during the Oct. 1 to Dec. 1, 2018 open enrollment period.
“I don’t think there has been a group of individuals hurt more by the high cost of health insurance than farm and ranch families. By establishing this new AHP for our qualified members, we know it will help cut costs associated with health insurance premiums,” NEFB President Steve Nelson said.
NEFB members interested in learning more about the NEFB Member health plans should contact their or any local Farm Bureau Financial Services agent.
