Access Health Announces Open Enrollment to Assist Area Small Businesses

MUSKEGON, Mich., December 8, 2021 – Access C3 Health, Muskegon County’s community health coverage program, announces an open enrollment period to help local small businesses and their eligible employees who are unable to access commercial health coverage due to cost. Access Health has provided comprehensive health coverage that is affordable for small businesses and their workers since 1999.

Health coverage is a critical tool to restarting our economy, especially as local small to mid-sized employers are struggling with COVID-related staff losses. Being able to offer access to an affordable health coverage plan with a strong benefit structure is instrumental to businesses working to attract new employees. The Access C3 Health plan was designed to ensure members can afford to access medical care – no deductible, $10 office visits, and $300 maximum for in-patient hospitalization – typically at a cost of $75 per month.

“We are excited to be able to open enrollment to companies who need a health coverage option that fits the small business budget. We know small businesses and their workers need help,” said Jeff Fortenbacher, Executive Director of Access Health. “Too many residents can’t afford commercial health insurance and are forced to go without coverage. Our community created Access Health to help residents access the medical care they need to address significant personal health concerns.”

Access Health provides a robust benefit coverage plan in cooperation with Mercy Health West Michigan. The plan incorporates a network of medical providers and resources to provide affordable primary care, hospitalization, and behavioral health.

Access Health’s unique model helps individuals actively engage in their health improvement. This approach focuses on identifying and resolving barriers that traditionally make it difficult for patients to improve their personal and community health.
