Health Insurance Following the Affordable Care Act

Members of the AIA were for many years able to take part in an AIA Trust group health plan, however, the AIA does not have an endorsed group health insurance plan for members.  However, there is an AIA Health Insurance Exchange available through the AIA Trust.

Alternately, since there are some factors which are rather unique to the New York market and it may be beneficial, particularly for our Sole Practitioners, to have access to  personalized guidance through the health insurance industry in NYC. Therefore, we have identified AED Benefits as a regional firm which  has broad and intricate knowledge about the benefits and regulations of the insurance industry.
