The Independent Oil and Gas Association of West Virginia, Inc. (IOGAWV) offers what is considered the premier association health insurance program in West Virginia.

The IOGAWV program is presented through a successful partnership with Highmark BlueCross BlueShield (HMBCBS) and USI Insurance Services and has become the largest fully insured policy holder of HMBCBS.  A partnership that has existed for over 20 years.

With the expertise of this partnership, our groups are assured of stability and multiple services, including the oversight and compliance of the ever changing Affordable Care Act Laws and Regulations.  This allows our members to focus more on their business.

Plan features offer availability to groups (with W-2 employees) with competitive rates; reduced employer risk exposure; multiple plan options; tiered rates; and outstanding customer service.

IOGAWV membership is one of the qualifications for the insurance program.  For more information about this program, contact Lori Miller Smith of IOGAWV at or 304-344-9867 or Pete Thackston of USI Insurance Services at or 304-638-7281.
