VitalHealth (Health Care Program)

Are you seeking the best option to assure the health of your organization’s employees?  The Center for Nonprofit Advancement provides its member organizations with a wide variety of high-quality insurance options at the best possible value.

For 30 years, the Center’s VitalHealth (health program) has provided benefits to small and large nonprofit organizations in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.  When you select our VitalHealth, you will join nearly 6,000 satisfied nonprofit employees and family members throughout the region, all while gaining access to affordable and comprehensive medical coverage.

Participating organizations have enjoyed unparalleled access to coverage options through an array of medical, vision and dental plans.  Additionally, the Center offers access to a series of life insurance options.

Besides the flexibility of the plans, you will receive great customer service, security and consistency in cost, and overall peace of mind.  What’s more, your overall costs are lowered by purchasing insurance with fellow nonprofits.

The highlights of the plan include:

  • Choice of seven (7) medical plans from CareFirst. Coverage options include HMO, Point of Service and PPO plans as well as a Health Savings Account (HSA).  Medical plans are available to organizations with two or more employees working at least 20 or more hours per week. Example: ABC organization has 10 employees (3 employees utilize an HMO plan, 4 employees utilize a PPO plan and 3 employees opt to use spouse coverage).
  • Access: Dental, vision and life insurance available to organizations with one employee working at least 20 hours per week.
  • Guarantee Issue (no underwriting)
  • Competitive Rates: Renewal rates were below 9.5% in 2012 (14% was the regional average in 2012)
