Business Health Trust was founded in Seattle in 2007 so that small businesses and non-profits could offer their employees the health benefits they need to stay competitive, and provide health insurance for groups that might not otherwise be able to afford coverage.
Business Health Trust is what the insurance industry calls an Association Health Plan or AHP. These allow small businesses to join together as a group to purchase insurance so their employees can have access to the same pricing and coverage enjoyed by large employers.
Since our founding, we’ve merged with other health trusts, expanded our reach across the state, improved our offerings, and added additional benefits. Today, more than 15,000 small business employees across the state get their health insurance benefits through Business Health Trust.
More than just a benefits solution, we advocate for small business insurance needs in Washington. We are vigilant about staying on top of changes in the small business health insurance market and advocating for changes that benefit small businesses — nationally, and at the state and local level.
