Our ties with union workers run deep

In 1956, UAW President Walter Reuther went looking for a member-focused alternative to traditional health insurance for local autoworkers. His search ended in 1960 with the formation of Community Health Association, which became Health Alliance Plan (HAP) in 1979.

For more than 50 years, we’ve honored Reuther’s vision by providing high-quality, affordable health plans for union workers and their families.

Our labor family includes auto and utility companies, parts suppliers, trade unions and municipalities. We’re also an approved plan option for retirees under the voluntary employees’ beneficiary association (VEBA) UAW Retiree Medical Benefits Trust.
