Less than one-half of U.S. small businesses offer healthcare and this program simplifies the increasingly complex challenge of finding affordable healthcare solutions. This program offers affordable health care on average of 30% less than traditional market rates and if made available would help MBNA members meet ACA regulations. You will hear more about simplified plan choices and benefits which are easier to understand while lowering your healthcare costs. This program is currently offering a four year “rate lock” providing rate stability in a very unstable market with cost sharing plans for significant and catastrophic health expenses. If you are interested in learning more, join us for this no-cost informational webinar designed for member feedback. There will be time allotted for questions.
