Here are the top 3 advantages of the Chambers Plan:

1.     It’s Simple

Keeping your benefits plan simple will help you focus on what matters most – your business.

  • Exclusive advisor support

2.     It’s Stable

Join a plan with the strength of 30,000 other businesses across the country!

Do you try to chase better benefits rates by changing carriers every year? Do you worry about what your benefits costs will be in the future?

The Chambers Plan makes your employee benefits premiums stable and predictable – year after year.

If you’re worried about rising employee insurance premiums, you need a pooled plan (like the Chambers Plan) where the premiums are based on the claims average across participants. Pooled costs mean your claims and those of thousands of comparable companies are bundled together. This ensures your premiums don’t fluctuate wildly year over year, but instead stay predicable and manageable.

For example, in 2014 the Chamber Plan’s average renewal increase was 1.5%.

The Chambers Plan is an employee benefits program that won’t put pressure on your budget. It offers fair renewals and great features for small businesses.

3.     It’s Smart

The Chambers Plan is smart for your company and your employees.

It is not-for-profit, and retains all surpluses in the plan keep premiums low. It also includes the Business Assistance Service, which connects owners to professional accounting, human resource, and legal experts.

The Best Doctors® service, which every Chambers Plan member has access to at no additional cost, gives you and your employees access to 50,000 medical specialists. This feature connects seriously unwell individuals with world-renowned specialists to help ensure they receive the best care.

The Chambers Plan offers a health and wellness website, my-benefits health®, full of information to help you and your employees manage illnesses, find doctors and other healthcare professionals, and stay healthy.
