NLA Advantage - Medical Stop Loss


The NLA Advantage has been developed by the National Labor Alliance as an opportunity for funds that have changed annual limits due to (PPACA) health care reform and others that purchase Medical Stop-Loss. The NLAHCC has provided an exclusive stop-loss program in partnership with Knight International and HCC Life. The program has been designed to limit operating expenses and profits keeping the cost low and taking a hand-on approach on protecting the funds bottom line.

Services Offered:

  • Early Lock out (6 months before effective date)
  • Discount to manual rates
  • Premium Holiday for positive results
  • Access to an array of claim units and other valued services (see handouts)
  • Each fund will be underwritten on own merits
  • Access to Transplant networks

Quality and Savings:

The NLA Advantage allows each fund to benefit in the success of a larger pool and also allows funds to be evaluated and underwritten with their claims history.

Medicare is reimbursing less and the cost and frequency of catastrophic events continues to rise. This creates an environment to shift the costs to Health and Welfare funds. With the backing of HCC Life and knowledge of Knight International funds will be able to proactively manage claims and provide a sustainable plan of action for limiting liability on the Health plan.
