Providing cost-effective healthcare plans can be a major burden for any company—and that's why the NAM has collaborated with Mercer to develop NAM Health Care to meet the unique health care needs of manufacturers.


Our mission is to provide our member companies with medical, dental, vision and life plans built specifically for small to medium-sized manufacturers, including potentially lower premiums, reduced administrative costs and more coverage options to help meet the needs of their employees.
