Association Health Plans
Due to recent federal legislation, Vermont small businesses may have more affordable plan choices for 2019 through Association Health Plans (AHP). This means, you may have more options to improve the health and wellness of your employees, connect them to essential health benefits and save money.
Association health plans (AHP) work by allowing small businesses, including self employed workers, to band together by geography or industry as if they are one single entity thereby creating a larger risk pool, lower costs and greater security.
