Health Insurance through Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield
As today’s small businesses continue to search for cost-saving health coverage options, Chambers of Commerce throughout Ohio have banded together to offer a new self-funded medical plan for small employers. The Northern Ohio Area Chambers of Commerce (NOACC), Central Ohio Chambers of Commerce, Southern Ohio Chamber Alliance (SOCA), Dayton Area Chamber, and the Youngstown Warren Regional Chamber have collaborated to create a new health program that can lead to more rate stability and is a smart solution that offers potential savings for groups with 50 or fewer employees.
More than 270 Chambers of Commerce in the state of Ohio have teamed up with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield to administer this plan and to provide stop loss coverage.
This new self-funded medical offering called the SOCA Benefit Plan is a multiple employer welfare arrangement (MEWA). MEWAs enable smaller employers to join together to share in the overall claims risk. By being part of a larger, self-funded pool, employers have financial protection backed by Anthem’s stop loss coverage.
In addition to financial protection, this innovative alternative offers:
- Competitive rates
- Fixed, predictable monthly payments
- A variety of plan designs, including four PPO and three HSA options
- Anthem’s broad Blue Access PPO Network and National Rx Formulary
- Coverage for claims run-out /terminal liability coverage
