WHY ARE WE CALLED SBE479?
We’re named after the new federal law (S.479 – “The Small Business Efficiency Act”), which allows small to medium sized businesses to become part of a larger, federally certified group program for health insurance and other business services.
It was passed by congress for good reason – to make American businesses more competitive and profitable by reducing risk, liabilities and red-tape for business owners. These advantages stem from a very simple concept – allow access for small business to the buying power and systems of larger companies while providing relief from various liabilities and responsibilities.
Interest in this program has exploded since the passage of the legislation. Over 130,000 businesses are taking advantage of this program, with some notables companies such as: Victoria Secret, Garmin, Snapchat, 1-800-Flowers, and Au Bon Pain.
We’re America’s largest business buying group, which means significant cost and time savings for our clients.
