The trucking industry faces unique challenges when it comes to health insurance. With a highly mobile workforce operating in an environment of rising healthcare costs, traditional insurance models can often fall short. Enter self-insured health plans—a solution that’s gaining traction within the trucking sector. Since 1929, NARFA is at the helm, guiding businesses through this evolution with expertise and tailored support.

Navigating the Shift

Why are self-insured health plans on the rise? For many in the trucking industry, the answer lies in control and customization. Self-insurance gives businesses the ability to tailor their health plans to the specific needs of their drivers and staff, potentially leading to better health outcomes and cost savings.
