Health Insurance

The Berks County Home Builders Association

has teamed up with Health Benefit Alliance to underwrite a

health insurance plan for all members of the Berks County

HBA. Whether you’re a large employer with hundreds of

employees or a small business owner with two employees,

this Berks HBA plan is an affordable option for you. We can also offer a separate sole proprietor plan.

Workers Comp Insurance

The PBA Workers’ Compensation Program is an alternative market program established by the Pennsylvania Builders Association in 1999 to help members leverage their group buying power to save on workers’ compensation costs. The program is only available to association members and since inception has grown to nearly 600 accounts with almost $9 million in premium volume.

PBA Workers’ Compensation Program participants don’t: 

  • Experience large surprise audits 
  • Pay the same high work comp premium when business is slow
  • Burden operating cash flow with a large down payment of premium 

PBA helps businesses compete with the parallel pay® program offered, allowing members to pay insurance premiums as they go, automatically through payroll service or manually as they pay employees.

Contact Ryan Dixon, PBA Coordinator for more information on this cost saving program:
