Health Benefits & Policy

AEA advocates for secure affordable, quality healthcare coverage for all public education employees.

AEA’s Public Policy and Bargaining Departments work closely with local associations to secure quality, affordable, comprehensive health coverage. We advocate for policies at the state and local levels to protect and secure public school employees' health care benefits. We offer expertise to affiliates working in both bargaining and non-bargaining contexts.
