Even now, small businesses in Massachusetts need access to quality health care for their employees. If you are wondering “Who has affordable health plans, with plan selection, and dental coverage?” The answer is, “We do,” at the Massachusetts Health Connector for Business.

 

For companies with up to 50 employees, Health Connector for Business provides a one stop shop for a wide range of plans and gives employees the option of choosing the plan that best meets their needs. With more than 70 plans statewide, there is something for everyone.

Niki Conte,
Associate Director of Public Outreach and Education
Massachusetts Health Connector

Niki Conte joined the Massachusetts Health Connector in December of 2006 soon after the passage of Massachusetts Health Care Reform and the creation of the organization.

She initially served as the Director of Outreach for the Commonwealth Care program, the state’s subsidized insurance plan that served over 175,000 members. In that role, she worked to develop communication strategies to engage both new and existing members.

As the Health Connector transitioned to an ACA compliant exchange, Niki’s role transformed. As the Associate Director of Public Outreach and Education, she helped develop and implement strategies to effectively transition consumers into their ACA compliant plans available on MAhealthconnector.org.

Since then, Niki continues to work on Health Connector outreach initiatives that engage and inform potential new members and stakeholder groups about the changes and opportunities for health insurance coverage available through the Massachusetts Health Connector - now including the new Health Connector for Business platform.
