The Western Healthcare Insurance Trust, or WHIT, was previously known as Washington Hospitals Insurance Trust and was established in 1972. WHIT is an employee welfare benefit plan and is also considered a multiple employee welfare arrangement (MEWA) under ERISA. WHIT serves hospitals and other health care related entities across the United States Pacific Northwest.
WHIT was established to provide unique and cost effective employee benefit plans to its members. This continues to be the criteria we use when evaluating new products and/or carriers. The products in WHIT must provide something the hospitals and healthcare related groups cannot obtain on their own.
Public and private hospitals located in the Pacific Northwest are eligible for participation in the Trust, as well as other employers in the health care industry with a minimum of ten employees.
DiMartino Associates partnered with WHIT in 1996 as the Trust's employee benefits consultant. In addition to this role, they also provide member service to our participating groups and provide in-the-field educational support for WHIT products.
Benefit Solutions Inc is the Trust's third-party administrator and responsible tor all billing and elegibility services, as well as general member services.
