Aetna, an insurer based in Connecticut, announced in early August, their intention to withdraw from the state health inexchange. According to the Maryland Insurance Administration, this will impact around 11,500 consumers. According to the Baltimore Business Journal, their withdrawal means that Aetna will not be eligible to offer insurance on the individual market at all. Aetna has not yet announced any plans to withdraw from the small business market, but if it does, they would no longer be able to participate in the small group market.
The presenters will help you sort this out for your small business. Cost is (before Sept. 2): $10 for chamber members or $15 for non-members. After Sept. 2, the cost increases by $5 ($15 for members; $20 for non-members). Continental Breakfast will be offered.
RSVP is required. Seating is limited. Register Now.
