Chamber’s new Health Marketplace


The Affordable Care Act has brought major health insurance changes for Nevada consumers and business owners. How insurance is purchased, how coverages will work and what is best for employers and employees are just a few of the things that continue to raise questions.

For more than 29 years, the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce has been proud to provide competitive, comprehensive health insurance for its members. Although current plans offered will no longer be available because of new health care reform regulations, the Metro Chamber remains committed to its members as they navigate this year’s changes and insurance enrollment process.

The Metro Chamber and Chamber Insurance & Benefits are unveiling a new range of health insurance plans designed to fit the needs of you, your business and your employees. Through our new Chamber Health Options marketplace, you will have access to more choices than ever with new tools to make the conversion to ACA-compliant plans as easy and seamless as possible.

In order to better serve members and their employees, this easy to use health insurance portal has been built to help you and your employees shop, purchase and enroll in a plan. Through, members and employees can check out plan options and prices, as well as research subsidy and credit qualifications so you can clearly understand your needs and ultimate choices you have in making healthcare decisions for you and your employees.

As small businesses evaluate the options, whether continuing with a small group plan or converting employees to individual plans so they can take advantage of available subsidies, is one-stop shopping. Through the website, you will be able to get individual and small group plans, either through your broker or direct online purchase. In addition, the Metro Chamber will be offering a Chamber group captive plan option, which gives mid-size and large companies the ability to access new plans. More details will follow in the October Business Voice.

To further help members with these often complicated decisions, the Metro Chamber will be providing comprehensive print information, holding Q &A meetings where members will have the opportunity to get their questions answered by insurance experts, and have a hotline to help them navigate through the changing insurance landscape and find answers – all from the trusted insurance solutions provider that has helped businesses obtain insurance for more than 29 years. “Simply put, we want to be our members’ partner as they make health care insurance decisions,” says Kristin McMillan, Metro Chamber President and CEO. “Choice, quality service, and completive solutions are our commitment.”

Chamber Insurance & Benefits President William Wright also stated, “We are excited to support Metro Chamber members who look to us to help them succeed in a challenging business marketplace. I am proud to continue this commitment with our new health insurance exchange.”

The Chamber encourages its members to talk to our agents, attend an informational meeting, or visit to get started with these decisions.
