Small Businesses often join chambers of commerce for many reasons such as a common legislative voice, community support and networking opportunities with like minded employers.
Now an Association Health Plan gives small businesses another reason to join a chamber of commerce. As a value added benefit, the combined buying power of members of a chamber of commerce can allow employers an opportunity to get similar preferred pricing and plan designs as enjoyed by companies with a large workforce.
Nevada has already begun to offer Association Health Plans to members of chambers of commerce through a coalition of chambers of the Clark County Health Plan Association. Small employers with at least one and not more than 50 employees and members of participating chambers of commerce can get affordable large group benefits and as much as a 15% premium reduction.
Association Health Plans have been around for many years in states like Oregon, Utah and Washington, but due to the Affordable Care Act it was difficult for new plans (especially chambers of commerce), to qualify as a bona fide association. Recent changes in the U.S. Department of Labor definition of employer has allowed chambers to create Association Health Plans once again.
