We proudly serve as a direct resource of fact-based information for the general public, employers, policymakers, think tanks and others who are concerned about healthcare, health insurance and various options for the American public.
The foundation has always recognized the great need for people to know where to look for the best health insurance options. We recommend that people begin this search by finding a qualified health insurance agent or broker. To find a local agent, the public can access NABIP's "Find an Agent” feature at www.nabip.org. NABIP members adhere to a strict code of ethics.
In addition to our web-based tools and resources, the NABIP Foundation has a series of short videos designed to educate the American public about wellness, prevention and the cost of healthcare services. These materials are used in a variety of venues from employer settings to frequently accessed media and social networking outlets. This initiative is important in addressing the critical issues associated with health, wellness and the cost of healthcare.
In addition to videos, we have printed materials to help non-technology–savvy consumers, English learners and others understand the various aspects of health insurance.
Outreach to the American public is an important part of the NABIP Foundation mission. Recent campaigns have offered assistance to seniors who are newly eligible for Medicare and those who have lost health insurance coverage during the economic downturn. Our newest outreach project provides resources on healthy lifestyles and care packages to underprivileged families in communities all over the United States.
Additionally, in partnership with the NABIP Foundation, NABIP State & Local Chapters we sponsored the NABIP Foundation Charity Walkathon, a campaign to raise money for those local charities important to our local chapters and their community. Each chapter that participated held a virtual walkathon on a day or during a time period of their choosing and specified a local charity to be the recipient of donations during the walkathon. This allowed NABIP chapters to come together to support charities all over the United States.
