Carson City Chamber of Commerce offers Hometown Health to members

Nevada Appeal staff report

The Carson City Chamber of Commerce is offering Hometown Health health insurance to its members.

In 2018, the federal government revised regulations to allow associations to offer health insurance to their member businesses. These new association health plans allow small businesses to band together to obtain health care coverage as if they were a single large employer, according to the Department of Labor’s website.

“The Carson City Chamber is pleased to be able to offer its business members the opportunity to purchase great health insurance at an affordable price,” said Ronni Hannaman, executive director. “What makes this partnership so important is that we can offer health insurance for the sole proprietor who usually is unable to obtain group health.”

The plan with Hometown Health is available for Chamber members through Chamber member brokers only. A list of brokers is available at the Chamber web site at http://www.carsoncitychamber.com/spotlight/details/chamber_health_insurance.

Hometown Health coverage is available starting May 1.
