The Chamber of Commerce of Eastern CT received the Steve and Sally Glick Award for Innovation for efforts to provide more accessible health insurance to the community from the Chamber Benefit Center Leadership Cabinet and Chamber Insurance Trust. The award was presented to Tony Sheridan, president, and Sheri Cote, director of operations.
The Chamber demonstrated their leadership in establishing access to insurance benefits by opening the Eastern Connecticut Benefit Center, an in-house insurance benefit center located at the Chamber office. The first of its kind in the state, the center, administered by Chamber Insurance Trust and coordinated through its carriers ConnectiCare, Aetna and HealthNet, allows members to speak directly with on-site chamber member insurance agents that assist them with their insurance needs and questions. The center provides information on Chamber exclusive insurance plans available for individuals, groups and the Medicare eligible.
