“The Las Vegas Chamber is proud to offer the only Association Health Plan in Nevada that provides quality and affordable health insurances to businesses of any size, including sole proprietors,” said Mary Beth Sewald, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Chamber. “Through the Chamber’s partnership with Anthem, we are giving businesses a range of health insurance options to fit their needs and budgets.
“Anthem is committed to creating a simpler, more affordable, and more accessible healthcare experience for consumers,” Mike Murphy, president of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Nevada. “As part of that commitment, we’re proud to be working with the Las Vegas Chamber to give businesses a variety of additional benefit options, with the same high-quality and affordability Anthem is known for in the Nevada market.”
The Metro Chamber actively engaged in the reintroduction of an AHP since President Trump issued Executive Order 13813 in October 2017. The Chamber submitted a letter to the United States Department of Labor (DOL) during its request for public comments and met with senior staff at DOL in February regarding its intention of once again offering an AHP. Additionally, Chamber leaders met with Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta during the association’s annual trip to Washington, D.C. in July.
In order to provide the most competitive and comprehensive healthcare options for our members, the Chamber issued a Request For Proposals in June 2018, following the DOL issuing its new regulations for AHPs. The Chamber reviewed multiple proposals, including plan options and rates, and interviewed multiple carriers prior to selecting Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, to ensure that the Metro Chamber selected the best healthcare partner and that its AHP is extremely favorable to small employers.
The Chamber Health Plan returned to its members in October 2018.
