MONEY SAVING PROGRAMS
Health Insurance Program
As part of our partnership with the Northern Ohio Area Chambers of Commerce (NOACC), Tuscarawas County Chamber of Commerce members are eligible for affordable health insurance through two Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield health plans, the Anthem ChamberSaver or Anthem SOCA Benefit Plan (MEWA).
Great News! As of July 1, 2020, health insurance for sole proprietors will be available through both of these plans! A sole proprietor must work more than 30 hours per week (documentation required) and also provide an IRS Form 1040 with Schedule C or Form 1040 with Schedules F and SE. Note: This change is not intended for non-profit organizations with only one employee. Quoting for sole proprietor coverage begins April 20, 2020.
