Health Care Plan

Save up to 30% off what you’re currently paying for health insurance with NAM Health Care Plans!* 

Because the Dayton Region Manufacturers Association is an affiliate member of the National Association of Manufacturers, DRMA manufacturer members with 2- 99 employees now have access to NAM Health Care: a new Association Health Plan that offers you quality health insurance -- at a value previously available only to larger companies! By collaborating with Mercer, we can now offer a fully ACA-compliant plan that leverages the size of the NAM and DRMA, offering your employees health care plans at what may be a more cost-effective price.
