NJCUL Offering Health Care

HIGHTSTOWN, N.J.-Through a new Small Employer Purchasing Alliance, the New Jersey Credit Union League (NJCUL) is now offering a line of health care coverage plans from Oxford Health Plans, Inc. to its member credit unions.

"The League understands the difficult position many of our credit unions are put in with the rising costs of health care coverage. Many credit unions are forced to reduce coverage, and in some cases, cut it all together.
