IAEC Health Care Plan

In the 1970s, IAEC established a health care plan to provide broad coverage to employees and directors of participating cooperatives. The IAEC Health Care Plan offers the benefits of group health care insurance and top-rate service from experienced health care administrators. A subscribing employer can select varying levels of premiums, deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses. Any rural electric cooperative located within the geographical boundaries of Iowa is eligible to apply for membership in the plan. Current members can log-in to our members-only section to access additional information.

Hawkeye Insurance Association 

Hawkeye Insurance Association is an unincorporated association providing group insurance and pension benefits to employees of participating electric cooperatives. Any electric cooperative or like organization is eligible to be an active member. Current members can log in to our members-only section to access additional information.
