Chamber Members with Small Businesses: Employee Group Medical Plans Now Available.

The Lexington Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that that the Missouri Chamber's MEWA program has been expanded to cover Lexington Chamber members!

What does this mean? As a Chamber member and a business owner with 2-50 eligible employees (and a maximum 99 total employees), you can take advantage of competitive group health care insurance rates available to a MEWA (a plan set up as a pool of trade, industry of professional associations maintained for the purpose of offering group insurance). You benefit from the competitive rates offered to this larger group, and more stable renewal increases.

The offerings include 10 PPO and three HSA options.

These health plans are available through Mike Keith Insurance and the Bukaty Companies, (both are Lexington Chamber members and service policies for the city).

We’re pleased to offer this program to our membership and encourage you to register for a free webinar explaining details about this exciting new opportunity.
