What is the SOCA BenefiĀ­t Plan?



The Southern Ohio Chamber Alliance Benefit Plan is an unique self-funded option that is offered by SOCA and administrated by Anthem. The SOCA Benefit Plan is a multiple employer welfare arrangement that is backed by Anthem’s stop loss and is filed with the Ohio Department of Insurance (“ODI”). It is governed by Trustees and By-Laws, that satisfy the ODI Requirements. It is available to small employers that have at least 2 enrolled on their medical plan with no more than 50 total employees. These employers are required to be members in good standing with a Chamber of Commerce that is qualified to offer the SOCA Benefit Plan. (The qualifying chambers are listed on page 3.) This alternative self-funded solution can be a good fit for your small group clients for many reasons including:

  • Competitive rates
  • Predictable, fixed monthly payments
  • Protection of being part of a larger self-funded pool backed by Anthem’s stop loss
  • Anthem’s broad Blue Access PPO network
  • Flexibility in choice of benefit plans
