Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield

Healthcare rules and regulations are changing rapidly, and so are the costs associated with providing healthcare as an employer. Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce members could see significant savings on healthcare coverage as well as healthcare, vision, disability, and life insurance, just for being a chamber member.

Anthem healthcare coverage

Chamber members are eligible for competitive, discounted pricing on a variety of health insurance products through Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield. Please contact your broker or the chamber for further details as not all options are listed here.

SOCA medical plan

Small Employer health coverage

In partnership with the Southern Ohio Chamber Alliance (SOCA) and Anthem, your chamber offers this program to businesses with 50 or fewer employees. This health program, called a multiple employer welfare arrangement, or MEWA, 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’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

The SOCA medical plan also includes expanded wellness offerings and Specialty products at specially discounted rates.
