Ranee Randby is leaving her community relations post at the Knox Co. Health Dept. to join a new health insurance co-op startup:
On Nov. 24, I began a new position as Communications Director for Community Health Alliance (CHA), the health insurance CO-OP for Tennessee. CO-OPs were created as part of the Affordable Care Act.Community Health Alliance has a mission to provide health insurance to individuals and businesses through a different business model: The Company is a true nonprofit, consumer-focused and governed by members. The startup timeline is to start enrolling members in October, 2013 and begin paying benefits on Jan. 1, 2014.
CHA is not the health insurance exchange; our products will be offered on the exchange. Think of the exchange as a marketplace, where individuals can compare plans and shop for insurance. The exchange will be Web-based, so a comparison to Travelocity is probably more applicable. Insurance agents also will offer CHA as an option to their individual and business clients.
