Employers of all sizes, whether fully insured or self-funded, can benefit from BHCG membership.  The vast majority of BHCG activities are supported through annual membership fees.  Individual or Associate memberships are available.

Individual Membership


Individual memberships are available to employers who have a minimum of 400 eligible participants, are self-funded and submit a joining fee. They may participate in all BHCG meetings and activities and have a voting right if they choose to offer the health plan through BHCG's Medical Administrative Partner.

Associate Membership

Associate memberships are available to employers who have less than 400 eligible participants. Associate members do not have a voting right but are allowed to access the health plan through BHCG’s Medical Administrative Partner and have access to information, educational materials and meetings of BHCG’s members as determined by the Executive Steering Committee.
