SOCA's Anthem Benefits Help Small Businesses Save Money & Attract Workers

Health insurance is one of the most important benefits that you can offer your employees. For small businesses especially, offering superior coverage at reasonable costs helps you stand out from the competition. A superior benefits plan can help your business compete with even the top corporate brands, and if you opt for health benefits through a Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangement (MEWA), like those offered by chambers of commerce under the SOCA umbrella, health insurance plans can come at competitive rates. 

MEWAs are a great option for small businesses because they allow many employers to spread the risk of health coverage over multiple parties, reducing liability and cost of coverage. The SOCA Benefit Plan is one of the best MEWAs available to small businesses in Ohio due to the scale of the network and the trustworthy coverage from Anthem. 

Many businesses who are considering the SOCA Benefits Plan wonder what specific perks the plan can offer them and their employees. They also wonder about the specifics of open enrollment and how they can prepare their employees and themselves for the hectic window of eligibility. 

In this post, we will cover the specifics of the SOCA Benefit Plan, what open enrollment is for health insurance, and how MEWAs can save your business significant funds. Keep reading to learn more!
