As a small nonprofit organization, you are running a tight budgetary ship, and any instability or unexpected costs could cause it to capsize. So how do you find that delicate balance between managing employee needs with the financial expectations of your board and funders? Join Nonstop and the Nonprofit Association of Oregon for a hosted lunch and 30 minute presentation and Q&A session on the NEW ION Healthcare Plan for small nonprofits. ION Plan basics:

  • Launching the pilot group in October 2015
  • Elimination of employee’s out of pocket expenses
  • Expanded alternative and complementary medicine
  • Offers nonprofits who care about healthcare the richest benefits possible

Enjoy lunch from New City Kitchen, a local nonprofit that helps people with employment challenges find work in the food service industry. Limited space available for the lunch. Please RSVP as soon as you can!

About ION

Insure Oregon Nonprofits (ION) is a new healthcare program from the Nonprofit Association of Oregon (NAO) and Nonstop, a Portland social mission-based healthcare broker. ION allows you to offer employees improved benefits with zero out-of-pocket costs while also offering expanded alternative and complementary medicine. Unlike traditional fully-funded insurance plans, ION acts on a “pay-for-use” platform, allowing you to cover only the services that employees use. And unlike a self-funded insurance plan, which carries a significant financial risk not feasible for small organizations, ION offers partially self-insured coverage with all of the risk managed and assumed by Nonstop. Typically only larger organizations with more disposable reserve funds have been able to afford self-funding, and all the risks and benefits that come with it. But with ION you – and your employees – are able to reap the same rewards as bigger businesses without those inherent risks. | Learn More
