Columbus, Ohio—Nationwide Health Plans announced today its newly formed partnership with the Alliance of Ohio Chambers. With this partnership, member-businesses of Chambers in west-central Ohio now have an attractive new
choice for their decisions regarding group health insurance and related services. In addition to special group health premium pricing, members of the Alliance of Ohio Chambers enrolling in a
Nationwide health plan will receive group vision coverage for their employees through Vision Service Plan (VSP) at no additional charge.“I’m excited about the potential savings for Alliance members this partnership brings,” said Robert Black, Alliance of Ohio Chambers administrator. “Ohio was a leader in the early 1990’s in passing legislation enabling the Alliance mechanism.
