JACKSONVILLE, FL (October 15, 2020) – Member Benefits, a national leader in association health plans and insurance programs, has announced its appointment as provider of a private health insurance marketplace for members of the Arkansas Bar Association (ArkBar).

Members of the ArkBar will be able to shop customized benefit plans for individuals and explore group health options for legal practices. The private marketplace from Member Benefits utilizes decision-support technology to help members select the plan best suited to their needs.

“The Arkansas Bar is thrilled to partner with Member Benefits to offer a variety of health coverage and benefits options to our members,” said Karen K. Hutchins, ArkBar Executive Director.

The ArkBar is in good company; Member Benefits serves several other state bar associations – including the Florida Bar, State Bar of Texas, State Bar of Georgia, the Missouri Bar, the Washington State Bar Association, and the State Bar of Nevada.

Products on the marketplace will initially include:

  • Individual health insurance
  • Group health and employee benefits
  • Dental and vision insurance
  • Life & disability insurance
  • Long-term care
  • Telehealth
  • Medicare supplemental insurance
  • And more

These offerings will be available to ArkBar members, as well as their spouses, eligible dependents, and employees.

“It’s about more than just offering quality products at competitive group pricing. We believe our service model is unique and find that members are often pleasantly surprised at the advocacy that we provide,” said Nicklaus Trefry, CEO of Member Benefits. “Our benefits counselors have extensive experience working with the insurance needs of legal professionals, and provide an enhanced customer experience to each member. Great products come and go, but consistently providing superior service to the members is how we build a successful program.”

The program will launch in late October 2020 and will be available to assist members when shopping for coverage during the upcoming health insurance open enrollment period.
