A New Health Insurance
Solution for Members

For many small businesses, the current health insurance landscape provides you and your employees with limited
choices and flexibility. TranscendAHP was created as a health insurance solution that pools members together with
the benefit of providing lower premiums and expanded benefits that currently only large businesses can obtain.

The Cadillac Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to endorse the TranscendAHP for our members with 50 or
fewer enrolled contracts.

TrandscendAHP allows small businesses to attract and retain top talent by offering a robust health insurance
package with affordable rates. To provide you with a more competitive set of solutions, Transcend has
collaborated with Blue Cross® Blue Shield® of Michigan (BCBSM) and Blue Care Network (BCN) to offer a multiple
employer welfare arrangement designed as a fully-insured benefit option for businesses with 50 or fewer enrolled
contracts, including sole proprietors.

Advantages of an Association Health Plan:


• Access to an exclusive menu of health insurance plan options from BCBSM and BCN, many of which are not
available to small business owners outside of the Association Health Plan. All plans have been selected to
appeal to the varying needs of Michigan small business owners.

• Access to the vast BCBSM and BCN network of physicians and hospitals.
– Special pricing that could lower your premiums.
– You continue to use the independent insurance agent of your choosing.
– Enhanced billing, enrollment and customer service.

How it works:
Notify your licensed health insurance agent that you would like a quote from the team at Transcend. If you're not
already working with an agent, we can connect you with someone in your area.

Members of the Cadillac Area Chamber of Commerce must also be a member of Transcend. However, we have
negotiated significant savings on dues to give you access to all that Transcend has to offer. Make certain
that you tell your agent that you are a Cadillac Area Chamber of Commerce member.

For more information, please contact 877-888-6020 or email info@transcendmichigan.org.

and attended the Michigan Chamber of Commerce Conference in

everyone there and was stopped many times in the hallways and

just beamed and said that she was enjoying all the love. In reality,
Dawna was feeling so much love back because she gave it out on a
daily basis. She will be deeply missed.
