Chamber Chatter: Medical insurance | Community


Considered one of the largest savings advantages that a membership with the Tillamook Chamber offers to employers is access to an association medical health insurance program. A few years ago, the Bend Chamber of Commerce established an association health plan through the Oregon legislature, and we’re excited to partner with them and Corey Bush at Hudson Insurance to bring that medical health insurance program to Tillamook. But sometimes this seems like our best-kept secret, so we’d wish to remind you that it’s available and we’re here to assist.

Here’s how it really works: Any member in good standing on the Tillamook Chamber of Commerce may develop into an associate member of the Bend Chamber of Commerce. This associate membership allows local businesses the chance to access the Bend Chamber’s association health plan.

The good news is that you simply don’t must jump through any hoops with an out-of-town contact or agent. You possibly can simply contact Corey Bush. Because the local agent, he can walk you thru the method and let you recognize if it’s probably the most competitive policy for your corporation.

There are six different options from PacificSource, so that you and your employees can get the health advantages that best suit your needs. We all know that medical health insurance is just not one size suits all, so we’re proud to give you the option to supply the choice to decide on.

One great upside to those plans is the competitive rates. You might find yourself with better-suited coverage at a lower rate. That’s something we’ve already heard from members who’ve taken advantage of this profit!

For businesses that don’t already offer health advantages, you may find that this program finally makes doing so inexpensive. It could actually be difficult to search out plans that cover what you and your employees need without breaking the bank.

I won’t get into the specifics of every plan here, but I can let you know that every one the health plans cover essential health advantages, no-cost preventive care, and calendar-year advantages. Plus, all member out-of-pocket costs for covered services apply toward the annual out-of-pocket limit. PacificSource is an excellent network each in Tillamook and throughout the state of Oregon, and the Tillamook Chamber team wants you to take full advantage of the advantages and programs that work best for you.

One small reminder: The plan is simply available with a Chamber membership. We’ve talked before about giving our members an appropriate value for his or her membership, and that is a method we are able to try this. Considering that almost all memberships cost lower than $250 a 12 months, I’d say access to a health plan like this – and a slew of other membership advantages – is well price it.

Open enrollment for federal programs starts in November, so it’s an excellent time to start and see if these plans are an excellent fit for you and your employees. This might offer you time to work through the main points and ask any questions you wish before insurance firms get busy later in the autumn.

If this healthcare plan feels like something you’re desirous about, I encourage you to succeed in out to Corey Bush at Hudson Insurance to learn more and see whether it is an excellent fit for your corporation. I believe you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
