SBAC Launches Health Insurance Private Exchange

  • SBAC members have worked tirelessly for nearly three years to bring a health insurance cooperative, an insurance product owned by small businesses, entrepeneurs and its other members, to Illinois
  • The SBAC has launched the SBAC Private Exchange where SBAC members can compare and purchase Land of Lincoln Health’s individual and small group health insurance plan offerings and soon will be able to gain
    access to special benefits not available anywhere else.
  • 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.
