Health insurance solutions for your small business
COSE is pleased to partner with Medical Mutual of Ohio and local chambers to provide health insurance to Greater Cleveland’s small business community. The COSE Benefit Plan, also known as the COSE multiple employer welfare arrangement (COSE MEWA), is a health plan designed for small businesses to provide their employees with the same great health benefits that large corporations do.
When you choose COSE for your health insurance needs you receive the following benefits:
Savings – Through its partnership with Medical Mutual of Ohio, COSE offers its members special pricing on group health insurance.
Information – The COSE team is here to provide consultation and advice on your health care options.
Advocacy – COSE is your voice at the state and federal level as health care reform continues to evolve. COSE advocates on behalf of small businesses to ensure that health care reform does not unnecessarily burden Ohio’s small business owners.
