The Massachusetts Health Connector for Business and the New England Business Association announced a partnership to make it easier for Massachusetts small businesses to access affordable health insurance options created by Health Connector for Business.
“We are excited by this partnership with the New England Business Association, which will make it easier for thousands of small employers to access health insurance through Health Connector for Business. Through the new platform, employers can quickly determine their costs and benefits for the year, while offering their employees the flexibility to pick their own plan from a range of health insurers for the first time ever in the Massachusetts small group market,” said Massachusetts Health Connector Executive Director Louis Gutierrez.
The new partnership creates a statewide visibility and access partnership that will make it easy for New England Business Association members to access Health Connector for Business and provide health insurance to employees.
The agreement is the first of its kind for Health Connector for Business, which unveiled a new online experience in November 2017 that created an easy-to-use platform offering savings to business owners and plan choice to employees.
Through the new partnership, the New England Business Association will highlight Health Connector for Business on its website and hold up to 15 informational seminars across the state, giving business owners a first-hand look at the platform and its benefits. Health Connector for Business will create a dedicated access point for New England Business Association members and offer direct support to businesses considering insurance options.
