Insurance For Chamber Members – April 4 Meeting

Wednesday April 4, 6:30 pm
Clinton Inn

The Tenafly NJ Chamber of Commerce is exploring forming a health insurance group. This can permit member single-employee businesses to get group rates and can help smaller businesses be a part of a lower-cost group. Businesses would not need to be located in Tenafly but they would need to be members of the Tenafly NJ Chamber (current basic membership $125/year).

The Chamber has asked Izzy Kushner of HR Impact to give a detailed presentation on how such a plan would workand potential coverage plans.

Izzy Kushner Is the president of HR Impact, Inc. (201.750.7070), a consulting firm that helps clients select, implement and administer employee benefit plans. The firm also assists clients with a full range of HR issues including employee communications; employee, executive and Board compensation; payroll administration; selective executive search; corporate culture assessments, and regulatory compliance.

Bill to Permit Insurance Through NJ Chamber of Commerce Organizations

Chamber of Commerce groups across the state are mobilizing to support NJ Bill S-2874 which would permit members of the Chambers of Commerce to form small business alliances which would provide the opportunity to for sole proprietor members to buy health insurance.

Voting on the bill is expected to take place this Fall. Members are asked to contact their representatives now to express their views.
