Arkansas Health Insurance Marketplace seeks input from small businesses

The Arkansas Health Insurance Marketplace encourages representatives of small businesses to take a minute to support Arkansas’s business community, the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce, and their own business by completing a survey to help build a successful small business health insurance exchange.

Recently, the Marketplace board voted to launch a state-based small business health insurance exchange (SHOP) in 2015, offering coverage beginning Jan. 1, 2016. The Marketplace is soliciting input from small businesses across Arkansas (100 employees or less) as it seeks to build the capabilities necessary to serve them.

Each business that participates will have a chance to win a $1,000 donation made in their name to the charity of their choice. Additionally, if the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce has at least 50 member companies participate, it will receive a $1000 donation to assist in business support efforts.

The online survey is available at www.cicerogroup.com/surveyahim.
