SB/A Freedom Protect Plans

Couple Shaking Hands with Advisor

The Freedom Protect Plans marketed by DAC are not your typical health coverages. The Freedom Protect Plan is a partially self-funded health care coverage program regulated by ERISA. ERISA is the Federal Law that sets the standards for over 60% of employer established health care plans in private and public sector industry. The Freedom Protect Plans is not Health Insurance. It is an ERISA medical health benefit plan.

Freedom Plans are NOT health insurance.

Imagine zero deductible, first dollar coverage, no medical underwriting, no pre-existing condition exclusions, Affordable Care Act (ACA) mandated coverages, and more – plus nationwide preferred provider networks that includes over 4000 primary hospitals and most licensed board-certified physicians. The Freedom Protect Plans offer “no deductible” coverage with the flexibility, affordability, and usability so you can now effectively manage your health care. You purchase the amount of coverage that you believe best fits your needs and life- style. The Freedom Protect Plan is not for everyone – if your annual coverage needs are expected to exceed The Freedom Plans annual limitations, you should consider additional industry available options.

The Sponsor or the Employer
must be a member of the SB/A CoOp
to take advantage of the Freedom Plans.
