Get SMART, a great health plan for small businesses

April 20, 2020
Are you looking for a health plan that can give you more rate stability and even more ways to save? You’ve got it. 
Welcome to the Georgia Chamber SMART Plan! A great health care solution that gives small businesses like yours an easier, more affordable way to offer health care to your employees, with a lot less worry. How? Easy!
 
The Georgia Chamber has teamed up with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem) to offer small business employers with at least two employees enrolled on their medical plan and no more than 50 eligible employees an opportunity to participate in a larger, self-funded pool. This way, they can join together to share in the overall claims risk and have financial protection backed by Anthem. Pretty smart, right?
 

"Words cannot express how happy we are with the SMART Plan and the services they provided. It has added great value to our company and our employees are appreciative of the resources available to us.”

Georgia Chamber Documents
 
Product Dues and Acknowledgement form
​Participation in the SMART Plan requires the payment of product dues to the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, which is in addition to your membership fees.  Product dues are based upon the number of enrolled employees in the SMART Plan, and will be billed separately from your membership dues on an annual basis.
  • Form for groups with effective dates prior to April 1, 2021
  • Form for groups with effective dates April 1, 2021 and beyond
 
The Participation Agreement is the agreement between you and the Georgia Chamber SMART Plan, and it outlines your responsibilities as a Participating Employer.  These responsibilities include your agreement to join or to maintain a membership in good standing with the Georgia Chamber of Commerce or your local participating chamber and comply with the terms of the SMART Plan. 
 
​This document establishes a group’s plan, specifies the benefits provided under the plan by referencing the benefit booklet that will be issued by Anthem, and delegates to the Georgia Chamber SMART Plan the powers needed to administer the program on a group’s behalf.
 
All forms must be completed and submitted as one package.  If any forms are missing, not completed or signed, the document will be returned for completion and will delay the implementation process.
