Health Insurance for 'Sole Proprietorship' Businesses

Posted: Thursday, September 23, 2010

The Ridgewood Chamber along with many other NJ Chambers have been discussing with the State of New Jersey the idea of being able to offer Health Insurance to small businesses, especially "sole proprietorship's." Right now, the State of NJ is the only state in the Nation that is NOT ALLOWED to have Chamber of Commerce's offer health insurance of any kind to their members. With the new Health Care Reform, we do not know what will happen in 2014, but right now we know that the small business owner cannot get health insurance from any Chamber of Commerce in the State of NJ. If you are interested in being on this committee or would take a minute to call, email, or fax your opinion on this matter it would be helpful. We are looking for business owners that would be willing to write a letter, on their own letterhead that they would like to have the opportunity for this health insurance. Please contact the Chamber at (201) 445-2600 or email us for more information.
