MBA Benefits Alliance is a non-stock corporation formed to provide a high-quality, competitive, self-insured health care program for member banks and their employees. Working together, MBA Benefits Alliance and Webber Advisors, offer a self-funding health insurance program for MBA members across the state that provide a solution to one of our members’ greatest concerns - the rising cost of health insurance.

Program Advantages Exclusive to MBA Members
MBA Benefits Alliance provides MBA members with the following advantages: • The ability to more closely control their health insurance costs, while providing flexibility, support and service • A reduction in medical loss ratios.

“As a Community Bank focused on providing an Absolutely Exceptional Experience at all times, for both our customers and our team members, we joined the MBA Benefits Alliance five years ago as a means to enhance the benefits we were able to offer to our employees while maintaining a sustainable cost structure. In that time, we have been able to offer our employees high quality insurance coverage and sustain that coverage with relatively little change in costs at a time when industry costs overall are rising dramatically. The support and guidance provided by our benefits administrator at LR Webber (now Webber Advisors) has been invaluable, and each year we’ve received thoughtful recommendations specific to our plan and our usage, to ensure that we can continue to enhance benefits for our team.” --B.J. Goetz, President & CEO, Middletown Valley Bank
“Harford Bank is delighted to join the MBA Benefits Alliance. We considered several health care plan alternatives, but we believe the Alliance will enable us to provide the best combination of cost and benefits to our employees. The transparency of the program, combined with L.R. Webber's (now Webber Advisors) predictive claims modeling, were equally compelling.” --Mike Allen, President, Harford Bank
