Answers To Your Questions, Choices for Your Business

Last month, the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce and Chamber Insurance & Benefits announced Chamber Health Options, a comprehensive online marketplace for health insurance. Through this website, you’ll be able to search through individual and small-group health insurance options, seek out subsidies if applicable, and purchase health insurance for you and your employees on your time and on your terms. You may also continue to work directly with your Chamber member broker for your health insurance needs if that is your preference. Within the Chamber Health Options marketplace, you can request that a Metro Chamber member broker contact you if you do not have one, or you may call, email or chat with a Chamber Health Options professional to assist you in navigating through the process.

You may shop now for individual plans through the easy-to-navigate ChamberHealthOptions.com, or request a small, medium or large group quote to fit your business needs. Small group insurance plans will be available to purchase directly online beginning November 1.

It is important to note that current Chamber small group coverage through Health Plan of Nevada’s Chamber Health Plan will terminate on November 30, so replacement policies must be in effect by December 1. Still have questions? Here are a few frequently asked questions for you to peruse.
