Chamber partnership allows for top-notch health care

KRISTINA GROFF
Chamber of Commerce Executive Director

The Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce exists to strengthen the local economy, represent the interest of business in government, provide networking opportunities and promote the businesses within the community. We are fortunate to have a number of strategic partnerships with other organizations around Western New York to help equip the business community with the tools they need to be successful.

Bene-Care Agency, LLC is a critical partner of our Chamber of Commerce in our efforts to provide a real solution to some challenges businesses are facing. The availability and affordability of health insurance and other member benefits are among the most important issues individuals and small businesses face today. Many Chambers of Commerce nationally were impacted a great deal when new federal health care regulations took effect, and we could no longer provide the same level of plan options that we once could. With Bene-Care Agency, we have a trusted partner and benefits advocate and can now offer a full slate of insurance options to meet the diverse needs of both our business and individual members. It is Bene-Care’s job to stay on top of the always-changing federal and state regulations on health care, the Affordable Care Act, Workers’ Compensation and more to make sure your business is always in compliance. The bottom line is we trust them — and you should, too.

In a continued effort to offer the best possible solutions to meet your individual and business needs, the Chamber’s benefits program through Bene-Care offers medical, dental, vision, short-term disability, long-term disability, NYS disability benefits law, and life and accidental death and dismemberment insurance all at highly competitive rates.

To deliver these benefits, we have teamed together with Bene-Care Agency, LLC — an insurance agency, benefits broker and payroll provider — which has served as a partner to employer groups and individuals in Western New York for over 40 years. Through Bene-Care, we offer members an enhanced portfolio of benefit offerings from all WNY insurance carriers.

Join Cheektowaga Chamber and Bene-Care representatives at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, at the Cheektowaga Senior Center, 3349 Broadway, for an open enrollment information session. Already have insurance with the Cheektowaga Chamber/ Bene-Care? This is a must-attend to ensure you are set up for 2017. Curious if a plan through the Chamber might be a more cost-effective option than what you have now for you or your employees? Get more information at this event or by contacting the Chamber office.
