Exclusive Benefit Programs Available to MBA Members Only


Thanks to the Manufacturer & Business Association’s (MBA) long-term partnerships with industry-leading insurance carriers like Delta Dental, Aetna, Eastern Alliance and now VBA Vision — MBA members continue to enjoy exclusive access to premium benefit plans at highly competitive rates.

New Vision Benefit
Beginning January 1, 2018, MBA members with at least two participants can add our highly affordable vision benefit to their compensation package through VBA Vision. This flexible plan can be employer or employee-paid (no employer contribution requirement) — plus, there are no additional billing fees or administrative costs to boot.

Delta Dental is the No. 1 provider of dental benefits in the United States offering one of the largest national networks in the country. The MBA offers six exclusive plans at discounted rates — including a new plan that covers adult orthodontics — for groups with two or more employees. Best of all, there is “no waiting period” for coverage or treatment.

Life, Short-Term and Long-Term Disability
Thanks to our long-standing partnership with Aetna, MBA members with groups as small as two can select from various life and disability coverage options that offer no medical underwriting; no waiting periods and a two-year rate hold that includes flat rates, as well as salary rates.

Workers’ Compensation
MBA members have access to workers’ compensation insurance through our partner Eastern Alliance Insurance Group (EAIG) that offers the potential of a group policyholder dividend reimbursement for all participants, including small groups.
