The response from IPMA Members enrolled in the OPEIU Health and Welfare Plan has been overwhelmingly positive. The Plan has saved members substantially on their premiums, while, at the same time increasing their coverage and decreasing their deductibles. 

We could not have asked for a better member benefit. Please go to WWW.IPMA.NET and look at the available plan choices plans or call CDS Administrators at1-877-578-8710.

The OPEIU Health Plan has been developed at the request of the Illinois Podiatric Medical Association and other component Associations. The Health Plan has been expanded to allow us to include our life members. Life members who continue to pay their OPEIU Per Capita payments to IPMA, qualify for participation in all OPEIU benefits with the exception of the life and dismemberment insurance benefit. This participation includes the newly available Medicare Advantage Plan. 

This plan, in two plan designs, is now open to our IPMA life members. This recognizes the long term dedication of our older members and extends benefits to them which enhance their retirement and keeps the members  engaged with our Association.
