Health Insurance through an association

I have read and heard about getting on a group health plan through an association of some type.

Has anyone ever known of an organization or club that insures offer insurance to their members?

Yes. A lot are scams or they're in trouble with the AG of several states. Be wary.

Sam's club and Costco both have some sort of insurance. I looked into it a few years a go, but decided to stay with the insurance I had as an employee.

AARP has health insurance available for members through UnitedHealth Care. But it's not a HSA eligible policy. That's all I know.

As in any commercial product, health insurance should always be evaluated by the consumer with an attitude of "let the buyer beware."

According to their site, Costco's health insurance for small businesses is only offered in 5 western states (WA, OR, CA, HI, NV)
Their individual and family health insurance plan, by PacifiCare/United Healthcare, is only offered in CA.
