Stop Loss for Taft-Hartley Plans

Union plans have distinct eligibility and actively at work provisions, as well as greater challenges from rising costs and ACA requirements. Berkley Accident and Health has the specialized expertise to support Taft-Hartley groups. Everything we do, from our rapid claim service to our flexible coverage, makes it easy for union groups to protect their self-funded plans.
