OKC Chamber Drops Insurance

Posted: Updated:

 

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce will no longer provide a health insurance offering that 1,400 companies in the state have been using.
 
The chamber said Friday that the companies are going to have to look elsewhere for coverage because its group plan does not meet the requirements of the federal health overhaul law.
 
Chamber President Roy Williams told The Oklahoman that having to end the program is ``very, very unsettling.''
 
Williams said the participating companies on Friday were being presented offerings by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma that will include 26 plan options. Companies that sign up by December 1st will be covered through December 2014.
