(INDIANAPOLIS) – This week the Indy Chamber announced a new offering in partnership with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield to provide more affordable health care opportunities for businesses with 2 to 50 employees in the 9-county Indianapolis region. The ChamberCare Health Alliance provides a platform for small businesses to create its own self-funded health benefits plan administered by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, one of the most trusted names in health care for the last 75 years. Participants can also receive discounted dental, vision, life, and disability plans when enrolled.
“More than 80% of Indy Chamber members are small businesses,” notes Julie Grice, Chief Revenue Officer for the Indy Chamber. “Through the changing dynamics in health care policy at the federal level, we wanted to take the ‘guess work’ out of what is often a challenging decision for business owners to make. The ChamberCare Health Alliance is our answer to this challenge, allowing small businesses to worry less about how to offer health care to their employees, and instead focus on ways to grow their business.”
Today’s announcement expands on a more than 20-year partnership between the Indy Chamber and Anthem to provide affordable health benefits to regional employers. The ChamberCare Health Alliance is the newest offering in the ChamberCare Solutions suite of benefit offerings for businesses of all sizes.
“Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield is committed to improving lives and communities, and simplifying healthcare, which is why we’re proud to join with the Indy Chamber to offer ChamberCare Health Alliance, an innovative solution to address the rising cost of care,” said Robert W. Hillman, president of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Indiana. “Under this plan, which has been rolled out successfully in other Anthem states, small businesses will be able to join a risk pool that has the potential to bring significant savings, as well as more stable premiums and more predictability when it comes to budgeting for healthcare. By addressing a top concern in the business community and enabling employers to get a better handle on their costs, we believe ChamberCare Health Alliance can make central Indiana an even more vibrant and attractive place to do business.”
To participate in the ChamberCare Health Alliance, businesses must have 2-50 employees. The ChamberCare Health Alliance is offered to businesses in Marion County exclusively through Indy Chamber membership, and is also available to businesses in Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Madison, Morgan, and Shelby Counties.
