SBAC Health Insurance Private Exchange ~ Gubernatorial Candidate Meet & Greet ~ Holiday Giving

SBAC to launch Health Insurance Private Exchange Wednesday

  • SBAC members have worked tirelessly for nearly three years to bring a health insurance cooperative to Illinois. We drafted a bill that permitted such a cooperative and worked to get it passed. The cooperative is an insurance product owned by small businesses, entrepreneurs and  its other members.  Any excess revenue is put back into the cooperative.  The cooperative is laser-focused on stabilizing health insurance premiums and providing quality health care.
  • The SBAC will be launching a private exchange featuring cooperative products.  The private exchange works well and can also be accessed through SBAC brokers. 
  • This is a game-changer for small businesses and through critical mass, we have a product and a vehicle to access that product that is laser-focused on the small business community.
