The Chamber is committed to assisting its members in cutting costs and saving money to help accelerate the growth and bottom line of their businesses in our ever-changing economic environment.

DISCOUNTED INSURANCE

Insurance plan options could save your business money and provide increased benefits for you and your employees.

SMART Plan, a New Comprehensive Health Program

The Georgia Chamber of Commerce has partnered with Anthem (Blue Cross, Blue Shield) to offer a competitive health insurance plan that is available to all Chamber members that have between 2-50 employees. This program enables 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. This program is available ONLY to members of the Georgia Chamber, Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce, or another local Chamber of Commerce. It is our understanding that this program is very competitive with ACA rates and may provide substantial savings for standard group health plans.

For information on how this program works in connection with the Georgia Chamber, go to www.gachamber.com/smart.

Healthy Business Alliance Program

The Healthy Business Alliance® Chamber of Commerce-sponsored insurance programs began in 1994. The programs were developed to give small and medium-sized Chamber member businesses access to discounted insurance products. The program works through local independent insurance agents to make available comprehensive health insurance, limited benefit health plans, long term care insurance and supplemental coverage like dental insurance, term life insurance, disability income coverage, and vision care insurance. Products are offered through a variety of the top insurance carriers, and most products have some type of negotiated premium discount designed to save you money. Now, you can give your employees quality benefit packages like large companies provide.
