What is a MEWA?
For many small businesses, the current health insurance landscape has limited choice and flexibility when it comes to offering you and your employees healthcare coverage.
To provide you with a more competitive set of healthcare coverage solutions for your company and your employees, COSE has partnered with Medical Mutual to offer the COSE Health and Wellness Trust, also known as the COSE MEWA. This is a multiple employer welfare arrangement (MEWA) designed as a self-funded benefit option for businesses with 50 or fewer employees. Business owners with no employees are eligible to apply.
Learn more about MEWA by reading the Marketing Brochure and the MEWA FAQs.

In partnership with OnDemand Energy, COSE is pleased to offer its members more options than anywhere else and a no-cost consultative review of your natural gas and/or electric bill.
The first step in the enrollment process is to fill out the Letter of Authorization and have your utility bills ready. This way we can evaluate your utility bills
OnDemand Energy is the managing consultant of the COSE Natural Gas and Electric Choice Programs. They provide both commercial and residential electric opportunities to COSE members, chamber partners and applicable chamber affiliates.
