“When people join AAESEP, they find a partner in the search for affordable health insurance”, says AAESEP’s executive director Tyler Malin, “and with our simple lookup and registration tools, finding inexpensive health insurance has never been easier.” The introduction of AAESEP’s first insurance offering has been more than 20 years in the making. Well-known labor attorney, Roger H. Madon developed the idea for AAESEP in 1984 in response to the changes he saw in the American economy and the increased competition from foreign countries. “The challenges facing workers have evolved since I first developed this idea,” said Madon. “The world of work is different, but nothing has changed my mind about this project, I still want to give working Americans and their families the tools to build a healthy, happy life.”
