A new approach to medical plans for small employers

Learn about our new MEWA — the Missouri Chamber Federation Benefit Plan.

As today’s small businesses continue to search for cost-saving health coverage options, the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Missouri Chamber Federation have taken action to help.

We have teamed up with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Missouri to create a new health program that can lead to more rate stability and offers a smart solution with potential savings for groups with 50 or fewer eligible employees.

This new self-funded medical offering is a multiple employer welfare arrangement, often called a MEWA. This program enables smaller employers to join together to share in the overall claims risk. By being part of a larger, self-funded pool, employers have financial protection backed by Anthem’s stop loss coverage.

In addition to financial protection, this innovative alternative offers: 

  • Competitive medically underwritten rates
  • Fixed, predictable monthly payment
  • A variety of plan designs, including 10 PPO and three HSA options
  • Anthem’s Blue Access, Blue Access Choice, Blue Preferred networks
    and Traditional Open formulary
  • Coverage for claims run-out / terminal liability coverage
