About Us

The MEA Benefits Trust (MEABT) is committed to providing the best health and wellness insurance plans at an affordable rate for the benefits of all Plan participants.

Established in 1993, and headquartered in Augusta, Maine, the MEABT is a not-for-profit, employee welfare benefit plan dedicated to the health of Maine public school employees and their families.  An nine member Board of Trustees – all current or retired public school employees – governs the health insurance plan which provides coverage to approximately  69,000 individuals in the State of Maine, including active teachers, retired teachers, related personnel and their dependents.  The plan, which includes medical, pharmacy and wellness benefits, is available to members through bargaining between their local Maine Education Association Union and their employer.
