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 healthcare solution that gives small businesses like yours an easier, more affordable way to offer healthcare 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, but 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.”

Anthem wants everyone to have health insurance coverage, including those individuals and families whose employment and financial situations do not quite fit the mold for traditional plans. That is why we created a low-cost solution. Learn more about Anthem Enhanced Choice (AEC).
