 Bixby Metro Chamber of Commerce offering new health care coverage
through Greater Choice Oklahoma

Association provides access to competitively priced health care plan options

Bixby December 20, 2018 – The Bixby Metro Chamber of Commerce announced today that their members now have access to a health care coverage through Greater Choice Oklahoma. The coverage, provided by UnitedHealthcare, will be available beginning Jan. 1, 2019.

To be eligible, the business must have between two to 50 employees and be a member of the Bixby Metro Chamber of Commerce. 

“Greater Choice Oklahoma will offer an alternative for small businesses to purchase health insurance with the buying power and flexibility of a large business,” said Krystal Crockett. “This plan offers quality benefits and ease of purchasing, bringing more innovation and more choice to the market.”

Unlike current insurance plans being offered to small businesses under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), small businesses can take advantage of large group pricing under these new plans. These are now available to small employers because of recent changes to U.S Department of Labor regulations. 

When it comes to health insurance, “the regulatory burden on small businesses should certainly not be more than that on large companies,” Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta said during a June press conference announcing the new regulations.
