OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- With rising health care and insurance costs, it's no surprise thousands of small business owners are left in the dark when it comes to providing insurance for themselves, family members and employees. A 2008 National Small Business Association survey reported 62% of small businesses cannot afford health insurance for their employees. Without access to quality and affordable health care, small businesses are unable to compete with larger corporations. "Affordable health care is not only a top concern of small business owners, but for every American during these tough economic times," says Jim Tracy, president of America's Best Companies - a national small business organization dedicated to helping business owners better compete.
America's Best Companies' latest effort has been to partner with Careington International to provide its small business members, and their employees, access to discounted health care options. "Careington International provides an exceptional health care alternative to cut costs for the small business owner, as well as their families and employees. I am excited to offer our members an affordable option to help keep their small businesses thriving," says Jim. "These low-cost plans are the perfect solution for small businesses struggling for ways to cut costs." The Careington discount health plans offered through America's Best Companies can save business owners and their employees thousands of dollars per year.
"We are excited that America's Best Companies has selected Careington to help business owners save on their health care needs," said Chuck Misasi, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Careington International Corporation. "Through our enhanced discount medical plan, members will save on their medical expenses, in addition to substantial savings on other health care services such as dental, vision, and prescription drugs."
