On August 13, Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) members attended a webinar explaining the benefits of IBPA's Book Industry Health Insurance Program (BIHIP), an alliance with Lighthouse Insurance Group (LIG) Solutions and 11 other associations designed to provide IBPA members with a choice of health insurance options. A recording of the webinar is now available.

BIHIP launched on August 4 as a coalition of now 12 book associations including the American Booksellers Association, American Society for Indexing, Authors Guild, Book Industry Study Group, Graphic Artists Guild, Horror Writers Association, Independent Book Publishers Association, Mystery Writers of America, Novelists Inc., Romance Writers of America, Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and Western Writers of America Inc. The offering gives all coalition members, including IBPA members, access to LIG Solution’s extensive knowledge of the health insurance market in order to help members navigate their insurance options.

During the 60-minute webinar, IBPA members learned what health care options look like today, as well as what they will look like during November's Open Enrollment period...and beyond. In addtion, webinar presenters discussed the difference between ACA/Major Medical, Medicare/Supplemental, Short-Term, Vision, Dental, Critical Illness, Hospitalization, Life and other important health related supplemental coverage options and group/business/employee plans.

LIG Solutions, which has licensed advisors in all 50 states, helps people understand their health benefits and different plan options to determine the appropriate health insurance option. While health insurance agents typically only represent one carrier, LIG broadens consumers’ choices and can sell insurance from many insurance companies in all 50 states.

IBPA members and non-members can access a recorded version of the webinar here.

IBPA members only can access IBPA's unique LIG landing page, with information for contacting LIG Solutions about the BIHIP benefit, via the official IBPA Member Benefits Handbook. (An IBPA login is requred to access the handbook.)
