Enables Access to Healthcare Coverage at Immediate Savings via Simple Enrollment to its Members


Corvallis, OR and Englewood, NJ – June 2020 – Niche Meat Processor Assistance Network (NMPAN) today announced it is partnering with MJM Global Insurance Brokerage Group to provide the Association a new benefit of access to healthcare coverage options to their membership, their families, and their employees. This additional benefit will enable members to reduce their healthcare costs, as well as provide better healthcare coverage for their families.


According to Rebecca Thistlethwaite, Director of NMPAN, “We provide our membership with the tools and resources to enhance their businesses. By pooling our resources, we are enabling our membership to receive benefits which might not be affordable, or practical, on an individual basis.  We are dedicated to serving, strengthening and supporting our industry professionals. Offering this benefit of access to healthcare coverage at 8-12% less than comparable ACA plans demonstrates our support.”


MeatProcessorsHealthCare.com, launched by MJM Global, uses the collective purchasing power of the NMPAN membership to reduce healthcare premiums, while maintaining flexibility in plan design and provider. This benefit enables members to take control of their true healthcare costs. Bundled with the coverage, at no additional cost, is Prosper Benefits, a suite of non-insurance benefits including Health Advocacy, Medical Bill Saver, Telemedicine and Confidential Counseling.


MJM Global Insurance Brokerage Group is rich in family tradition, spanning three generations over seventy years, providing reliable insurance for all types of commercial and personal risk to the jewelry industry. They launched MeatProcessorsHealthCare.com to help NMPAN members see immediate and significant savings on one of the largest expenses, in addition to turning an otherwise complicated health insurance buying process into an easy system. 


Rick Reiman, Vice President of MJM Global Insurance added, “I am confident that offering the ability to access healthcare coverage via MeatProcessorsHealthCare.com (powered by Candor USA) will enable MJM to provide unprecedented service levels, at below ACA plan costs.”  Rick continued.” Since the signing of the ACA, group health insurance plans have increased at over three times the rate of general inflation. Ninety-seven percent of Americans do not know what their insurance covers, and the process of shopping for and enrolling in coverage remains a significant burden to employers and employees. NMPAN and MJM Global have made significant movement to help resolve the situation.”


NMPAN is a university Extension-based national community of practice of people and organizations helping small meat processors thrive by growing our shared wealth of information and innovation. Small and mid-sized plants — when available at all — can lack capacity, equipment, appropriate inspection status, and the human and financial capital to upgrade or expand. To meet this need, NMPAN assists meat processors, producers, buyers, regulators, and others involved in this growing sector by coordinating, distributing, and developing information and resources to improve access to processing infrastructure and the long-term stability of this sector.
