 New SOCA Benefit Plan

As today's small businesses continue to search for cost-saving health coverage options, the Southern Ohio Chamber Alliance (SOCA) has taken action to help. SOCA has created a new health program that can lead to more rate stability and offers potential savings for groups with 50 or fewer employees. 

SOCA has teamed up with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield to administer this plan and to provide stop loss coverage. Working with the nation's largest health benefits company brings extensive knowledge, experience and peace of mind to you and your employees.

This new self-funded medical offering called the SOCA Benefit Plan is a multiple employer welfare arrangement (MEWA) that 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.
The SOCA Benefit Plan is available only to businesses in Ohio who are members of select Chambers of Commerce and the YS Chamber is pleased to be one of those chambers. Click here to learn more about the SBP.
There is limited distribution through select brokers, so please call the YS Chamber office for more information.
