Why does ACCE offer these products?

ACCE understands the challenges many Chambers and community-based organizations face as a small business. Offering a competitive employee benefits package is one of the biggest challenges, but it is a necessity in order to attract and retain top employees. However, many organizations don’t have the time or resources to shop the full employee benefit market and negotiate with providers. That’s why ACCE has done the legwork for you and provides you with access to popular, high quality products at affordable rates.

How do these products compare to those my organization could find locally or through my own negotiation?

The products offered through ACCE were chosen for their comprehensive offerings and affordable group insurance rates. We have vetted national providers to find you leading products in the industry.

Each product provided is not only part of most standard employee benefits packages but offer some additional options for employees to purchase on their own. Because of ACCE’s large membership base, the rates quoted on ACCE plans are comparable to those offered to large private employers.

 

How do I receive a quote to cover all my employees? What if I want a quote for multiple products?

For our employer-offered group products, you can submit an online quote or download a Request for Quote form and select which products you would like to cover all of your employees. We recommend that you request a quote on all offerings in order to benchmark your current plans or to see if there are additional products that might fit within your benefits budget. It only takes moments for us to compare. You can also call an ACCE Benefits Quoting Specialist at (800) 601-1016 and request a quote for the products you desire.

For our individual or voluntary offerings, you can follow the instructions on each product’s page to go to the provider’s quote page for the plan.

How quickly can I receive a quote and get coverage established for my eligible employees?

Generally a quote can be offered within 48 hours, provided all the information is available or completed on your Request for Quote form. Coverage can then be established as soon as your employees’ paperwork is complete and approved and payment has been received. Waiting periods vary by product, and you have the ability to select which option fits your organization the best.

Are the rates affordable for our Chamber’s small business budget?

Because ACCE has used the group buying power of the entire ACCE membership, we have been able to negotiate the best possible rates. Generally this means that we’re able to offer lower rates that you could find on your own or as a small business group.
