The Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce (Chamber) begins the year with exciting health care news for small businesses in Stark, Carroll, Holmes, Tuscarawas and Wayne counties.

The Chamber is proud to bring an affordable health care coverage option administered by AultCare to the small business community called the Canton Regional Chamber Health Fund. This is a self-funded plan made possible through a Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangement (MEWA) and is designed to offer small businesses a competitive option in the health care marketplace.

The Canton Regional Chamber Health Fund offers medically underwritten rates for small group employers with two to 50 employees that may be less expensive than a community rated plan through the Affordable Care Act. This provides the Chamber an opportunity to not only offer a health care coverage option to existing and potential members, but “keep it local.” The plan utilizes AultCare’s provider network, and all benefits are administered by AultCare.  

“After many months of planning and going through a comprehensive approval process, our Chamber is pleased to offer an affordable, quality health plan to our small business community. Not only does this plan help small businesses potentially save money, but it supports local jobs by utilizing AultCare, a health plan based here in Stark County,” said Dennis Saunier, president & CEO of the Canton Regional Chamber.

“AultCare has always been proud to help support and strengthen our community. We are happy to partner with the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce on this initiative, which gives small businesses more options when it comes to quality health care plans,” added Rick Haines, president & CEO of AultCare.    

Nine plans are currently available, ranging from traditional co-pay plans to health saving account-compatible plans. Ancillary products including dental and vision are available.

To obtain health care coverage through the Canton Regional Chamber Health Fund, businesses must be a member in good standing with the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce, which includes being up-to-date on membership dues. The Health Fund is exclusive to Canton Regional Chamber members. To become a member, contact the Chamber at 330.456.7253.
