About Us

Meet Our Team

Labor Health Consulting brings together union health trusts and healthcare solutions. By carefully
selecting only the most effective and efficient service offerings, LHC maximizes value for Taft-Hartley
trusts and municipalities.

Having served union health trusts for nearly 20 years, the principals of LHC understand the benefits and
significance of the union culture. With a broad range of experience innovating in healthcare service
offerings, LHC also understands how to identify and evaluate healthcare offerings so that they only offer
the services that most effective, efficient and easiest to implement.

How We Work

When LHC starts to work with a new Taft-Hartley or Municipal Trust, they seek first to understand the specific needs of that organization. By assessing the geographic and demographic distribution of the
membership, goals of the board of trustees and history of the organization, LHC can recommend an
appropriate set of solutions to meet the current and future needs of the organization. LHC works withleadership, trustees and outside advisors to design a program to bring maximum value to the Trust.
Labor Health Consulting uses a 3 point process to evaluate dozens of potential partners annually,
selecting only the best for its union health trust clients.

  1. Prospective partners submit detailed information about their solutions, the return on
    investment, along with a detailed description of how they will serve the unique union
    population.
  2. LHC deploys a proprietary methodology to ensure a multidimensional fit with its clients’ current and future needs.
  3. LHC coaches solutions providers to best configure and position its products to serve the union
    health trusts most effectively.

Successful solutions have a strong ROI, a solid fit with specific needs of clients, and a unique value
proposition for union members. Not every solution LHC evaluates is offered to its health trust clients.
