Many small businesses in our community continue to search for affordable health coverage options. That’s why the Carl Junction Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to partner with the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry to create a new health program that offers potential savings to businesses with 50 or fewer eligible employees.

This new program is called the Missouri Chamber Federation Benefit Plan. It uses an innovative structure that enables smaller employers to join together to share in the overall claims risk. This creates a larger self-funded pool providing greater stability and financial protection backed by Anthem’s stop loss coverage. This is called a multiple employer welfare arrangement, or MEWA.

We encourage our members who have 50 or fewer eligible employees to look into this new health coverage option. It is possible that many employers in our business community could find a cost savings by participating in the Missouri Chamber Federation Benefit Plan.

The first step to take is to visit mochamber.com/mewa to learn more and follow the link to get a quick rate estimate.

Please take the time to learn more about the Missouri Chamber Federation Benefit Plan. If you have questions, please contact Tammy Long at the Missouri Chamber at tlong@mochamber.com or (573) 634-3511.
