As part of the chamber’s membership, small business owners now have access to affordable,accessible health insurance plans 
June 30, 2021 – At a time when healthcare seems increasingly inaccessible to so many small businesses,  AvMed and the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce (GMCCC) are partnering to offer affordable health insurance option for businesses of 5 to 50 employees.  
The jointly-launched program, called the Greater Health Trust (GHT), allows small businesses to attain affordable health coverage and benefit options for their employees.  Organizations must be members of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce in order to access benefits of the Greater Health  Trust.
Like other multiple employer healthcare arrangements, the goal is to provide corporate-level health benefits to small businesses and their employees at a lower cost than conventional insurers.  
Research shows that almost half of small business owners have increased deductibles or copayments for their employees, and a quarter have required their employees to pay higher premiums. A recent article in cited findings from a poll sponsored by the Small Business Majority and patient advocacy group Families USA noting that “small businesses are struggling to cover the high costs of health insurance for their employees after a year of COVID-19.”
The comprehensive health plans offered through the GHT are designed to fit employees’ needs and employer’s budgets, while providing a broad network of doctors and hospitals; competitive rates with a fixed, monthly payment; and quality service with AvMed’s Florida-based customer service. 
“Small businesses are the backbone of our community and healthcare is increasingly challenging for them to access,” said Alfred Sanchez, president and chief executive officer at Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce. “The Greater Health Trust is an invaluable asset to small businesses looking to provide robust, but affordable healthcare options for their employees. This is an absolute win/win for all.”
“We have seen an overwhelming need for more affordable health coverage for small businesses,” said James M. Repp, president and chief operating officer at AvMed. “We look forward to seeing the great impact we can make for small businesses right here in our South Florida community.”
