Berkshire Chamber Authorized as Insurance Group Carrier

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Chamber of Commerce has been approved as a Group Health Insurance Cooperative as part of the Massachusetts Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives.

The approval by the state Department of Insurance and with Retailers Association of Massachusetts will allow the state association to operate as one of up to six cooperatives authorized by law to work with insurance carriers in an effort to give small businesses and individuals more options for saving on health insurance by banding together to buy coverage.

Through MACCE, the Berkshire Chamber of Commerce has been approved as a qualifying chamber and will work with insurers in the coming months to create new opportunities for its members, of which nearly 85 percent are considered small businesses.

More information on this new member benefit will be discussed at MACCE's annual meeting this Friday, Jan. 6, at Cranwell Resort in Lenox.
