The Massachusetts Health Connector for Business will offer members of the New England Business Association direct support in shopping for health insurance on the state exchange, under a new partnership announced Thursday.

The Massachusetts Health Connector for Business and the New England Business Association today announced they will partner to make health insurance more accessible for small businesses in the Bay State.
The agreement builds on the Massachusetts Health Connector’s new Health Connector for Business, announced in November, a platform offering plan choices to employees and savings to businesses with 50 or fewer employees shopping on the state health insurance exchange.
Through the new partnership, the New England Business Association, based in Waltham, will highlight Health Connector for Business on its website and hold up to 15 informational seminars across the state, giving business owners a first-hand look at the platform and its benefits.
Health Connector for Business will create a dedicated access point for New England Business Association members and offer direct support to businesses considering insurance options.
“This partnership will dramatically change the way employers in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts can access health care and provide benefits to their employees in a cost-effective manner. It is a unique opportunity and we are excited to partner with the Massachusetts Health Connector for Business,” New England Business Association President and CEO Karim Hill said in a statement Wednesday.
