HMAA, SBH Create New Member Sole Proprietor Benefit Medical Plan
HMAA, the Hawaii Medical Assurance Association, one of Hawaii’s leading health care providers, and Smart Business Hawaii, announce a new expanded benefit comprehensive medical plan—medical, drug, dental and vision – tailored especially for small businesses.
The plan is available only to current members of SBH. It is exclusive to SBH.
The new plan, the HMAA/SBH Comprehensive Plus, announced at the SBH Sunrise on July 28, becomes effective September 1, 2011. In particular, it provides advantages to sole proprietors and independent contractors who have had major difficulty in the past in gaining a group plan with expanded benefits at an affordable price. This plan will do that.
HMAA and SBH have been working on the details of the new plan for several months. Much of the credit goes to Larry Santiago of HMAA. He will be the exclusive agent for this new program.
Call Larry at 791-7563 or Darlyn at SBH, 396-1724. You can also download the PDF application form and faxing it in.
You can get a benefit by benefit comparison to see if this plan is right for you. There are several new additions, a few exclusions and co-pay considerations. The details are all transparent to help you.
This is yet another benefit of membership in SBH, Hawaii’s most effective business advocacy organization.
During the ‘80s and ‘90s, SBH was the state leader and pioneer in providing several medical plans and multiple choices for small businesses.
