AFA Group Health Insurance
Share |


Dear Alabama Forestry Association Member,

We are excited to announce that AFA is exploring the possibility of offering a large group health plan to our members – an option not previously available to associations until recently-passed legislation.

We are hopeful that, by banding together under one large group plan, AFA members will have access to lower health plan rates than what you can currently obtain on your own. In order to obtain these group rates for our consideration, we need all interested members to fill out an Association Health Census. To help with this process, we are partnering with a third party, OutFront Health.

If your company is interested in participating in the group health plan, you must complete an Association Health Census. Per carrier guidelines, members who do not fill out a census will not be eligible for coverage during the first plan year. However, filling out the survey does not obligate you to enroll in the plan. This applies to your employees and their dependents as well—you will have the opportunity to include their information on the census.

Nearly all of our membership will be eligible to participate in the new plan. The exceptions will be 1) companies who do not directly participate in the Forestry business (insurance companies, for example), and 2) single-person companies. In other words, each company who participates must employ at least one non-owner employee on a full-time basis.

To complete the Association Health Census:

1. Visit OutFront Health’s website by clicking the Census Request Form button below, fill out the required fields, and click submit.

2. You will then receive an email from with a link to Download Forms. This link will allow you to download the Association Health Census.

3. Enter your employees’ and their dependents’ information on the Association Health Census. Use the following naming convention when saving the file: “AlabamaForestryAssociation-YourCompanyName.”

Example: AlabamaForestryAssociation-BigTreeLoggingCompany

4. Return to OutFront Health’s website by clicking the Submit Completed Census button below, fill out the required fields, and upload your Association Health Census.

The deadline to upload your Association Health Census is July 12, 2019. We will send further information once all census data is compiled and group rates are determined. If you have any questions, please contact Liz Chambers at or (334) 481-2135.
