Big Benefits for Companies of Two or More Employees

For nearly 20 years, medical, dental, vision and life plans offered by the Association of Washington Business (AWB) have consistently provided employers and their employees with competitive, high quality coverage. Powered by Premera Blue Cross, HealthChoice participants have access to one of the broadest networks of providers and services available and comprehensive benefits like 100% coverage of in-network labs, x-rays and diagnostics, to keep employees healthier and happier.

Administrative simplicity & customer service

You receive one consolidated bill for all coverages to minimize paperwork and make administration easy. Our helpful customer service advocates help you with benefit plan administration, ID cards, COBRA benefits and any other questions you may have related to your benefits plan.

Twelve plan options

Plans range in deductible from $250 - $5,000. Three Health Savings Account (HSA) plans are also available with deductibles ranging from $1,250 - $2,500. All plans comply with state and federal benefit mandates and include consumer protections such as guaranteed issue and renewal of coverage.

Freedom to choose your care providers

Employees want choice when it comes to their health care provider. With HealthChoice, you don't need to select a primary care physician or need special permission or referral to see a specialist. You can use any licensed provider. Receive the best benefits when you use a network provider.

100% coverage for in-network diagnostics

Full coverage with no deductible for in-network labs, x-rays and diagnostics, to keep your employees healthier and happier.

An extensive network

Premera has one of the most extensive networks in the state and with options in both their Heritage and Heritage Prime plans, HealthChoice makes finding the best health care coverage for your group simple and easy.

Dental, vision, life plans available

Affordable dental coverage is available through Delta Dental Washington and Willamette Dental; vision through Vision Service Plan and life through USAble Life.
