1199SEIU members have some of the best health coverage in the nation.

Your Unparalleled Health Coverage

While most U.S. workers have health coverage through their employers, almost all of them have co-pays, premiums and other out-of-pocket costs that can add up to thousands of dollars each year.

Most 1199SEIU members enjoy unparalleled health coverage with little to no out-of-pocket costs, while other members pay modest co-pays and premiums for high-quality care.
