Health Insurance Institute
This training is the first step in the process directed at creating joint labor-management health care committees that can cooperatively work together to identify problems, collect and analyze information, make recommendations to employers and unions, and help educate employees about health care. This program consists of intensive training in health insurance, procurement, and problem solving for labor-management committees.
The most important part of this process is the commitment of each individual committee member. The willingness of each member to participate in their health care committee, as demonstrated through involvement and participation throughout the training and in subsequent meetings, is essential.
