NATA Launches Ground-Breaking Group Health Benefits Program for Aviation Businesses, the NATA Healthcare Initiative Program

 Featuring healthcare benefit savings as compared to traditional coverage options 

Washington, DC, October 20, 2020 – Today, the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) announced it has partnered with Peak Benefit Administrators for the launch of the NATA Healthcare Initiative Program. This brand-new, level-funded group Program for members provides medical health benefits with an integrated wellness and lifestyle improvement program. With premium savings over comparable traditional insurance plans, NATA’s Program offers five plans with options in several categories including health, dental, vision, life, and disability insurance. The NATA Program offers the highest level of service, with a dedicated CSR team.

“NATA could not be more thrilled to bring this new Program to market at a time when access to quality health and wellness benefits and cost savings for employers and employees are paramount,” stated NATA President & CEO Timothy Obitts. “Prior to unveiling, we tested the health care Program with a few NATA members of different size in different or multiple geographic locations, and they all experienced savings.”

“It has been a goal to assist our membership, primarily consisting of small businesses, with this key area of coverage that was lacking in our industry. We are proud to offer a new option that provides solid coverage and professional service at a competitive price, no matter the company size," added Obitts.

“Healthcare continues to change at a rapid pace and the adoption of robust plan options that utilize modern technology is an important step to expand coverage and mitigate costs for employers. We are happy to offer our low cost services through this partnership with NATA which will allow us to further our mission to drive healthcare efficiency and coverage for small businesses,” stated Fred J. Meijering, Partner at Peak Benefit Administrators.

Other Program highlights include portals for both employees, employers and unlimited use of their telehealth feature – Telemedicine-MD Live with $0 copays, immediate savings – no need to wait until renewal, and the ability to offer additional ancillary benefits
