Health Insurance Options for Small Businesses
If you're a small business owner or manager (including 501(c)3 organizations) with fewer than 25 employees and you didn't investigate whether you might benefit from the new Small Employer Tax Credit in 2011, then you need to talk to the Chamber!
The Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce has been awarded a grant from the Community Service Society of New York (CSS) through its outreach program, called Community Health Advocates (CHA), to help serve the small business community through a new Small Business Assistance Program (SBAP). The Tompkins Chamber is one of thirteen organizations that will form a statewide network to provide outreach and assistance to small businesses in their communities regarding access to health care and health insurance. Community Health Advocates (CHA) operates a similar program throughout New York State that helps individual consumers find and use health coverage and care.
"This grant will allow us to reach more small businesses across Tompkins County with accurate and timely information about health insurance and access to health care. It's a great honor to be a part of this system and to help form the SBAP," says Jean McPheeters, president of the Tompkins Chamber.
Our first two information sessions are about health insurance options for small businesses and tax credits.
