May 18 - The Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) has launched a new Benefits Programme exclusively for its members, opening new options and reducing members' costs for healthcare and ancillary services.

"One of the biggest challenges many of our members face is finding reliable, cost-effective health insurance for themselves and their employees," said SC&RA executive vice president Joel Dandrea. "For many of our members, this programme offers substantial savings on important products and services that ultimately can help them attract and retain key employees."

The new programme will be managed by Association Benefit Resources (ABR), with the medical plan insured and administered by United Healthcare Insurance Company (UHC).
