Get FARM, a great health plan for small businesses

October 23, 2019
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 FARM 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 Farm Bureau has teamed up with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem) to offer groups with at least one enrolled employee and no more than 50 eligible employees and sole proprietors the opportunity to join together to share in the overall claims risk and have financial protection backed by Anthem.

In addition, groups should fall within a broad range of agricultural SIC codes participating in a larger, alternative funded pool. SIC codes cover more than traditional farming such as construction, clothing, paper products, printing, mining, furniture, raw materials, food preparation, restaurants, grocery stores, landscapers, and fertilizers.
