This Open Season, let the APWU Health Plan be your healthcare companion. The APWU Health Plan offers exclusive premiums for union members and innovative value-based benefits that provide members financial incentives to get and stay well. As a department of the APWU, the APWU Health Plan is the only plan that is designed specifically for the members of the union.

The plan offers two distinct options, comprehensive benefits, as well as a nationwide preferred provider organization (PPO) which makes finding a doctor simple.
