PARSIPPANY & CRANBURY NJ – October 23, 2023 – Delta Dental of New Jersey, Inc. (DDNJ) and AmeriHealth are bringing their insurance expertise together to offer New Jersey Chamber of Commerce members group health, dental, and vision plans.
Benefits New Jersey Chamber of Commerce members can take advantage of through this exclusive member health insurance program include:
Big-business benefits for small and large businesses;
Better dental pricing for small businesses than purchasing group benefits on your own;
Flexibility to choose the coverage you want;
And, one year’s Chamber membership fee will be covered with the purchase of an AmeriHealth plan* (provided as an administrative credit for the first year only).
“This unique partnership is the perfect opportunity for Delta Dental to offer its comprehensive dental and vision benefits in one convenient and affordable package,” said Dennis Wilson, President and CEO of Delta Dental of New Jersey. "We are incredibly proud to partner with AmeriHealth to extend these combined benefit offerings crucial to New Jerseyans’ overall health and well-being to members of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce, one of the state’s leading chambers.”
Dentists and optometrists are trained to detect numerous health conditions by observing early warning signs in the mouth and eyes. Often, dentists and eye doctors will first see signs of systemic issues – and good oral health is vital to good overall health.
“We believe in providing a broad range of health plans that allow employers to offer affordable coverage and resources to help employees maximize their benefits and live healthier,” said Michael Murphy, Vice President, Sales, AmeriHealth. “We are excited that our partnership with the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce will bring members the added perk of a Chamber membership fee waiver. It’s a win-win when we innovate together.”
“The ability to provide health insurance to employees continues to be one of the top budgetary struggles for most New Jersey Chamber of Commerce member companies of all sizes. In fact, health insurance costs are climbing at the steepest rate in years with costs for employer coverage expecting to surge around 7% for 2024 – and for some the increases are in the double digits. That’s why the Chamber is partnering with AmeriHealth and Delta Dental of New Jersey to offer affordable and quality health plans that Chamber member companies can offer their employees,” said Thomas Bracken, President and CEO, New Jersey Chamber of Commerce. “The New Jersey Chamber of Commerce is constantly looking for ways to make membership more valuable to our members. it is our hope this latest member benefit does that for New Jersey companies,” he continued.
While coverage starts on January 1, 2024, you can learn more about this unique offering today. Visit NJChamber.com/NJChip for additional information on the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce Member Health Insurance Program and details on how to become a NJCC member.
