There’s an exhilarating independence that comes from owning your own business.
Yet owner-operators face a number of challenges, too. At the top of the list: healthcare.
We know many drivers struggle to find affordable, comprehensive healthcare. That’s why we just launched a new program to help our drivers get the healthcare they (and their families) need. It’s our way of saying thank you to the hardworking people who contract through Tallgrass Freight Company.
With the help of our endorsed healthcare provider, IHA Health, we’re proud to offer a comprehensive healthcare plan, including major medical, dental, vision, accident, critical illness and life.
Just as we strive to deliver exceptional service to all of our freight customers, we’re committed to giving that same experience to our owner-operators. Instead of having to navigate the confusing Affordable Care Act Marketplace or trying to make ends meet by paying for a plan that offers too little service at too high a premium, we’ll put our drivers in direct contact with IHA Health so that they can learn more about their options and make an informed decision that results in affordable coverage built specifically for our owner-operators and their needs:
- Set rates (pay the same rates for all ages)
- Set plans
- Best-in-class PPO network
- Other options available, including Minimal Essential Coverage Plus
- Save time and out-of-pocket costs with an easy-to-use health app
Our logistics business is built on equipping our owner-operators with the tools they need to succeed, then getting out of their way so that they can do just that. Our new healthcare program is the next step in ensuring our owner-operators have all of the resources they need to build thriving careers, including affordable healthcare coverage. And it’s the first of many carrier benefits that we plan to roll out in the coming months.
If you haven’t yet joined our owner-operator network and are looking for a chance to start a new chapter in your career, we’d love to hear from you anytime. Feel free to reach out and we’ll give you more information about how Tallgrass Freight will help you take charge of your own destiny.
