Day-to-Day operations of the OPEH&W Health Plan are performed by the OPEH&W Health Plan’s Administration Office. Due to the OPEH&W Health Plan being a public trust, the administration of the OPEH&W Health Plan is contracted to McElroy & Associates. When you call the OPEH&W Health Plan’s toll free phone number this is who you are talking to.

McElroy & Associates has been the OPEH&W Health Plan's Administrator since 1996. During this time it has overseen and introduced many changes and improvements. Today, the administration of the OPEH&W Health Plan is more complex than at any other time in its history, with more than 5 times as many participating employer groups than in 1996.
