IYBA Care Health Insurance
IYBA Care is a revolutionary “Association Plan” and one of the first of its kind in the world. Pioneered and built from the ground up by maritime health insurance company SGRM and underwritten by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida, we have developed six plans that deliver health solutions to meet your needs. In addition, IYBA MEMBERS now can enjoy vastly lower “group rates” that they would usually only find as part of a large company or corporation.

Enroll in IYBA CARE now:
Q. My enrollment form does not seems to be “fillable” ?
A. Have you downloaded it and saved to your computer? Do that and then you can “save as” for each person who is enrolling for IYBA CARE. If you still have problems contact SGRM at email@example.com and we will work with you to get you enrolled.
Q. I am already enrolled in a health insurance plan. Do I have to wait until the end of the year or a specific time to cancel it?
A. No. You can cancel at any time and enroll in IYBA CARE. But remember for those enrolling now, coverage starts on May 1st so keep your current healthcare plan active until IYBA CARE starts.
Q. My company has a small group plan for my entire staff. Can I switch to IYBA CARE?
A. Yes you can. You can choose an IYBA CARE plan similar or better to what you have now. Because you are in a larger group with IYBA CARE, this should save your company a lot of money. Also with your current plan you may have fixed premium rates for all of your staff, whereas with IYBA care we have variable rates across age groups. You can average the premium rate across your workforce if you wish. For more assistance with mini-groups within IYBA CARE contact our health insurance experts at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q. Why is the plan contingent on 300 persons and is a May 1st start?
A. In order to have a group plan that offers an affordable price structure, insurance carriers need to spread the risk over a large number of people. In this case we need 300 people to join the plan. IYBA has over 1,500 members and along with their dependents that represents a very large pool of potential applicants, so we are confident we will reach the minimum requirement. Having an enrollment period open until April 15th allows us time to accept applications and answer all of your questions to achieve the 300 person minimum.
