Medical Insurance

Effective March 7, 2014, WSBA no longer offers medical insurance as a member benefit. This difficult decision reflected the growing cost of this insurance to our members. If you have questions or need to find a new healthcare option, please contact LOMAP at 206-733-5914 or LOMAP@wsba.org.
