Benefits of Membership
The Plano Chamber is part of the Collin County Employers Health Plan Cooperative, which grants small businesses access to affordable health coverage options as an Association Health Plan (AHP). AHPs allow small businesses to band together by geographic location to obtain healthcare coverage as if they were a single large employer, which can potentially strengthen negotiating power with insurance providers. CLICK HERE if you are a small business owner with 2-50 employees and would like to know more information regarding this potential benefit.
