HEALTH INSURANCE OPTIONS:
The National Writers Union understands that health insurance is one the most important purchases you will make. The right health coverage will protect you, your family and your employees, if you have them, against the rising cost of treatment for illness and injury.
As a National Writers Union member, you have access to information about a wide variety of insurance products that cover a diverse range of needs, and the assistance of a single licensed insurance agent in your state to help you figure out what's best for you. Whatever your situation, we're here to help you get the most from your health care dollars.
At this time, the National Writers Union does not provide group insurance, with its guaranteed coverage and reduced rates.
The health insurance plans found through this site are individual plans. All plans will be underwritten and coverage will be offered by the carrier(s) based on the information contained in your application. You can choose to submit the application online or if you need, and agent, licensed in your state, is standing by to assist you.
The inquiry process below is designed to connect you to the best rated carriers in your zip code area while protecting your information and preventing unsolicited responses to your request for health insurance.

DENTAL AND VISION INSURANCE
The dental and vision plans available to members of the National Writers Union are described in the documents here. An enrollment form is included.
There are two dental options available:
· a dental Health Maintenance Organization (DHMO), available in many but not all states, in which you must choose an in-network provider and receive care only in-network; and
· a dental Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), available in every state, which allows you to choose a network dentist or any dentist.
Vision coverage is included with every dental plan and may be used with any provider, though you save more by using a VSP provider.
If you would like to apply for coverage, send the application and first month’s premium made payable to Bollinger to Irene M. Walton at the address below. You will be notified when coverage begins.
To locate a network dental provider you can call CIGNA at 1-800-CIGNA-24 or search this link.
