Member Savings

With over 350 members, the Chamber has the clout and purchasing power to provide members with substantial savingsand discounts.


The Southern Ohio Chamber Alliance has joined forces with the Northern Ohio Area Chambers of Commerce, the Central Ohio Chambers of Commerce, the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber to form a self-funded medical benefit plan aimed at small employers with 2 to 50 employees.

The SOCA Benefit Plan (hereafter, the Plan) is a multiple employer welfare arrangement. Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield provides claims administration and stop loss protection. Participating employers are required to maintain membership with a Chamber of Commerce that is authorized to offer the Plan. Initially, distribution of the Plan is limited to Anthem Champion and Elite brokers who have completed specified training. The Plan is governed by a Board of Trustees elected by participating employers.

The authorization from the ODI comes after nearly three years of vetting the idea and planning among various partners, according to Matt Appenzeller, Executive Director for SOCA. "This is a great example of Chambers of Commerce and our partners throughout Ohio coming together for a common goal of providing value to the business community," he said. "We have great partners. I think we're all pretty excited to get started." The SOCA Benefit Plan will be offered through approximately 250 Chambers of Commerce initially.

Additional details regarding the Plan will be disseminated in the coming months through SOCA, qualified Chambers of Commerce, and brokers who are certified to sell the Plan.
