October 19, 2022: Finding the Right Health Coverage That’s Right for Your Business Webinar Replay

Recent surveys have shown that there is a significant disparity between large employers with health coverage and the number of very small businesses that have limited or no health coverage. For small business owners, the ability to cover their medical bills and other health costs not only helps their business stay afloat, it also supports their employees and impacts their bottom line.  
This webinar on Wednesday, October 19, 2022 presents information businesses can use to find the right healthcare coverage for their small enterprise. You'll hear from Marie Cooper, Senior Small Business Outreach Coordinator from the Washington Health Benefit Exchange (WAHBE) who shared how the Washington Healthplanfinder can help!  Marie discussed the resources that WAHBE offers small business owners on Washington Healthplanfinder, the state’s official online marketplace for individuals to shop, compare, and purchase quality health insurance. She also covers the value of having insurance, the different insurance options, and how small business owners can support their employees in getting the health coverage they need (no matter their budget).
We were also joined by small business owner Thea Feltzs, president of Comparative Solutions, who offered her real world perspective as a small business owner.
