American Council of Engineering Companies of Oregon

Health Insurance

Membership provides two options for health insurance.

Your firm must be an ACEC member to join either of these health trusts.

Organized by members of ACEC Oregon and ACEC Washington, the Pacific Northwest Consulting Engineers Health & Welfare Trust (PNCE Trust) has been offering comprehensive benefit plans at competitive prices to member firms since 1959.
Consisting of three Oregon and three Washington PNCE member firm principals, the PNCE Trust's board of trustees meet twice a year to review the plan offerings, evaluate the market for recruitment and competitiveness, ensure the stability of the plan, and make decisions for the future plan year. 

The PNCE Trust offers a full suite of benefit programs that are only available to Oregon and Washington ACEC members including a local service team to help member firms with all their employee benefit needs. Their dedication to servicing member firms, employees and families is a true indication of their passion and is demonstrated through this member firm's testimonial.

"My experience with PNCE Trust has been full of excellent communication and customer service. They have completely eliminated my fear of having to deal with our insurance carriers directly for onboarding, off-boarding, plan changes, and specific employee questions regarding the plan benefits."
