Medical Insurance

Effective March 7, 2014, we no longer offer medical insurance as a member benefit. The decision was very difficult, but reflected the growing cost of this insurance to our members. If you have questions or need to find a new healthcare option, please contact Charity Anastasio at 206-733-5949 or charitya@wsba.org.
