IN ANTICIPATION OF KEY ASPECTS OF THE PATIENT PROTECTION AND AFFORDABLE CARE ACT TAKING EFFECT IN THE UPCOMING MONTHS, the State Bar of Texas recently announced the Texas Bar Private Insurance Exchange, a multi-carrier private exchange exclusively designed for its members and their staff and dependents.

After carefully evaluating and comparing Private Exchange models offered by other state bars across the nation and models developed by third-party administrators and health insurance carriers, the State Bar of Texas Insurance/Member Benefits Subcommittee selected Florida-based Member Benefits Inc. to administer the Texas Bar Private Insurance Exchange. Member Benefits Inc., a third-party administrator, impressed subcommittee members with its successful history (more than 30 years) of specializing in association programs. The company currently provides services to more than 10 groups, including the Florida Bar, the State Bar of Georgia, the Florida Medical Association, and the Florida Institute of CPAs.

Member Benefits also maintains strong ties and relationships with A-rated national insurance providers, such as Cigna, Aetna, MetLife, Guardian, and United-HealthOne.

“The State Bar has been trying to find a way to deliver health insurance to its members for about the past seven years,” said Tim Kelly, Chairman of the Insurance/Member Benefits Subcommittee.
