Health Insurance

AGU offers major medical insurance to individuals and small groups plus a unique supplemental benefit plan called Fringemark. This plan provides a schedule of cash benefits paid directly to the insured to help offset the cost of common health care services such as doctor’s office visits, lab tests, hospital or emergency room treatments and surgery. Fringemark is a lower-cost alternative to comprehensive health insurance. Eligible employees, including part-time and contract and seasonal workers can be insured without answering health questions or taking a physical examination. For additional information or a free, no obligation quote, contact Emma Parrish at (877) 673-9797 or visit the AGU website at
