The Indiana Chamber of Commerce and Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield have announced the formation of a ChamberCare Health Alliance. Chamber President and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Brinegar says competitive rates and automatic membership in the Wellness Council of Indiana make the alliance a “true game changer.”

The alliance aims to provide access to insurance rates that have historically been available to big companies. The program offers its multiple employer welfare arrangement which enables small businesses with two to 50 employees to participate in a larger, self-funded plan. 

“Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield is committed to improving lives and communities, and simplifying health care, which is why we’re proud to join with the Indiana Chamber to offer ChamberCare Health Alliance, an innovative solution to address the rising cost of care,” said Robert Hillman, president of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Indiana in a news release.

“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 health care. 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 Indiana an even more attractive place to do business.”  

Indiana employers can access the ChamberCare Health Alliance and the MEWA through their Indiana Chamber membership.
