Ag Health Benefits Alliance (AHBA) has been providing affordable health insurance and other benefits to agricultural employees in Northern California since its founding as the California Winegrower Foundation in 1972. Started by a group of forward-thinking winegrape growers who shared a common goal of improving working conditions, AHBA is a non-profit member organization that supports both employers and employees. It relieves employers of burdensome compliance and administration chores and empowers them to attract and retain a healthy, productive workforce.
For employees, having health insurance fosters well-being and financial peace of mind, while a friendly and accessible bilingual staff helps them understand and fully utilize their benefits. AHBA’s members were dedicated to providing health benefits for employees, including seasonal workers, long before it was required by law. Today, AHBA provides those benefits to more than 1,500 agricultural employees.
For more than 45 years, we have proudly served a diverse community of workers and their families.
