Cone Retiree Healthcare Group is the Nation’s most experienced health insurance agency providing Health Coverage Tax Credit group and individual plans. Our knowledge of this beneficial government program is unparalleled which is why we work closely with the U.S. Treasury Department, the Internal Revenue Service as well as members of Congress to insure the HCTC program remains available to corporate bankruptcy affected retirees and TAA/ATAA/RTAA workers and their families. Cone Retiree Healthcare Group began in 2009 by establishing a HCTC qualified plan for Delta Retirees that today has expanded to include all U.S. airlines who are eligible to participate. We have also established plans in the auto industry by creating a HCTC qualified plan for Delphi Salaried workers and union members and a VEBA trust for anyone meeting the eligibility requirements in the auto industry through the Metaldyne bankruptcy. Similarly, we formed a HCTC qualified plan for those in the steel industry for former ISG, Bethlehem Steel and other steel workers. These Trusts have provided industry groups with access across the whole of the U.S. We continue to work at state and federal levels to expand the availability of this valuable program for those affected workers and their families.
