Additional Ohio Farm Bureau Health Benefits Plan benefits
The plan offers access to care through Anthem, one of the nation’s largest networks of high-quality doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare professionals. When you join the Ohio Farm Bureau Health Benefits Plan, your small business becomes part of a large, self-funded group that shares in the overall claims risk with other small businesses. As part of this group, you’ll enjoy the financial protection backed by Anthem’s stop loss coverage, and a flexible choice of plans designed exclusively for Ohio Farm Bureau Health Benefits Plan participants. Lower, predictable costs and easier administration make it a great alternative to Affordable Care Act (ACA) plans, letting you focus on running your business — not your health plan.
