About Toast of Seattle 
The Toast of Seattle is one of the Seattle Chamber’s most successful networking programs. We take the stress out of networking with three structured rounds – in the style of speed dating! Each person at a table has two minutes to introduce themselves and speak about their business. At the end of each round, everyone changes tables and starts again. You’re guaranteed to meet over 20 people in 2 hours, and will, without a doubt, have a great time!

About our host
Experience Seattle’s unique, creative energy at the brand new Residence Inn Seattle Downtown. Built from the ground up and designed with style, comfort and added amenities, this hotel merges functionality with an urban lifestyle. The hotel is only a few blocks from Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, Safeco Field and cruise terminals. Plus, you’ll discover why Seattle is the cultural and business center of the Pacific Northwest, just being a few steps to the Capitol Hill residential district, Amazon Campus, Boeing and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Click here for more information.

The Toast of Seattle is sponsored by Advanced Professionals Insurance & Benefit Solutions, the managing general agent of Business Health Trust.

Choosing the right plan for you

You have choices when selecting a health plan during open enrollment. That’s a good thing, but it does mean you need to take action to find the right options for you and your family.

Try these 3 strategies to make sure you get the right coverage for you:

  • Call your favorite family doctors. Do they work with the plan you are considering? If not, are you willing to choose a new doctor?
  • Compare the different types of plans. One way to help you compare them is to look for a summary of benefits, which highlight plan differences.
  • Consider prescription coverage. Are your regular medications covered? Can you save on generic versions or by receiving prescriptions by mail?

 Tip: Sleep on it. If possible, allow yourself at least one night to mull over your choices. That way, you’ll be more confident you made the right call.
