Health Care Reform Changes For AVMA Members


As health care reform progresses, the American Veterinary Medical Association has made the decision to exit the health insurance market. Unfortunately, New York Life Insurance Company, the underwriter for the A.V.M.A. health plans, decided to no longer underwrite major medical coverage for professional association after 2013 because of the impending federal health care regulations.

What does that mean to you? It means you will have to make a choice or a decision will be made for you by default. But…Don’t panic.
