If you would like a program tailored to fit your needs that you can administer yourself, NYCON can still help your nonprofit through our insurance subsidiary, Council Services Plus!


A Note About Group Purchasing for Health Insurance:

The bad news is that though NYCON is a Membership Association we do not "group purchase" health insurance. Due to complex rules and regulations set forth by New York State, we are not able to negotiate lower rates for our members at this time.

The good news is that NYCON can provide members in most regions with access to affordable health plans through CDPHP - with no restrictions on participation and offering you a variety of options - even if you happen to be a small nonprofit. No other association can do this for you. Along with the service through CS Plus, one-stop-shop convenience, and NYCON consolidated billing, the benefits to working with us are clear
