New partnership will help ANCOR members unlock savings on annual premiums, eliminate upfront out-of-pocket expenses for employees and their families.
Concord, CA, April 12, 2023 – Nonstop Administration and Insurance Services, Inc. (“Nonstop”), a mission-based health benefits company, announced today its partnership with ANCOR, the leading voice in Washington, D.C., for community-based providers that support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Through this partnership, Nonstop will offer ANCOR members first-dollar coverage and better health benefits for employees and employers through its innovative core product, Nonstop Health™, connecting direct support professionals (DSPs) with equitable, ultra-competitive health plans without copays or deductibles.
The thousands of community-based provider organizations represented by ANCOR together employ more than 1 million DSPs to deliver crucial, often lifesaving services to people with I/DD. Unfortunately, the United States has for decades witnessed a severe shortage of DSPs, with turnover rates hovering just below 50% nationally and as many as one in eight DSP positions remaining vacant. Thanks to Nonstop’s new partnership with ANCOR, the association’s members will have opportunities to save on innovative health benefits, which enables them to preserve scarce resources to help combat the direct support workforce crisis.
I/DD providers that select Nonstop Health for their health benefits needs will see dramatically reduced—or outright eliminated—out-of-pocket costs for their employees, while the employers themselves will see an average savings of 8-10% on premiums, without any required changes to brokers, carriers or providers. In addition to better serving employees by paying all upfront out-of-pocket healthcare costs, Nonstop will provide participating ANCOR members with a competitive edge for attracting and retaining DSP talent.
“At Nonstop, we are serious about advancing organizational health equity. We are proud to join ANCOR as a Platinum Partner to provide first-dollar coverage to reduce the financial pressure on providers so they can continue their invaluable work to help I/DD live and work in their homes and communities everywhere,” said David Sloves, CEO, Nonstop.
“As if a longstanding direct support workforce crisis wasn’t enough, providers have been squeezed by a pandemic that continues to have a ripple effect on the ever-evolving regulatory environment in which they operate,” said Barbara Merrill, Chief Executive Officer, ANCOR. “That’s why we seek to partner with innovative companies like Nonstop—the savings created help alleviate the financial burdens facing providers and the DSPs they employ, the true backbone of community-based disability services.”
For more than 50 years, ANCOR (ancor.org) has been a leading advocate for the critical role service providers play in enriching the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). As a national nonprofit trade association, ANCOR represents more than 2,000 organizations employing more than a half-million professionals who together serve more than a million individuals with I/DD. Our mission is to advance the ability of our members to support people with I/DD to fully participate in their communities.
