The Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry is
offering a new health program that offers potential savings to businesses
with 50 or fewer eligible employees.
Many small businesses continue to search for affordable
health coverage options. This new program is called the Missouri
Chamber Federation Benefit Plan. It uses an innovative structure
that enables smaller employers to join together to share in the
overall claims risk. This creates a larger self-funded pool providing
greater stability and financial protection backed by Anthem's stop
loss coverage. This is called a multiple employer welfare arrangement,
Businesses who have 50 or fewer eligible employees are encouraged
to look into this new health coverage option. It is possible that
many employers in the business community could find a cost savings
by participating in the Missouri Chamber Federation Benefit Plan.
The first step to take is to visit mochamber.com/mewa
to learn more and follow the link to get a quick rate estimate.
The website also includes a list of participating brokers your company
can contact to begin the process of joining this new health care
Please take the time to learn more about the Missouri Chamber Federation
Benefit Plan. If you have questions, please contact Tammy Long at

Grand Opening for New Business Resource in Waynesville
Area businesses now have a Waynesville location to obtain business
counseling services through the Small Business and Technology Development

All are invited to attend an open house and ribbon cutting on February
8 from 10:00 a.m. - noon at the Pulaski County Extension Center

will be at 11:00 a.m.

be away from their place of business. Having a Waynesville office
location means it will be much easier for them to access local business
support services," says Keith Strassner, director of Missouri
S&T's TTED and the SBTDC service location that it operates.
"We are excited about this partnership opportunity with the
University of Missouri Extension, and will be sharing their office
space near downtown Waynesville."
A business counselor will be available for on-site appointments
on Thursdays beginning this month. To schedule an appointment, contact

Soil Test Price Increase
Effective January 1, 2018 the cost of our regular soil test will
increase from $15.00 to $20.00 per sample. The cost of other individual
tests will remain the same. The MU Extension Soil Testing lab tries
hard to keep prices low, but the rising cost of reagents, chemicals,
equipment, and labor forces us to raise the testing fee.
Our mission is to provide quality data backed up with unbiased
recommendations. We provide quick turnaround time on the samples;
once the University of Missouri lab receives your samples most are
processed within two working days. Please visit the MU website at
for additional information.
We sincerely appreciate your business and continuous support for
the MU Soil and Plant Testing Laboratories. We look forward to meeting
your analytical needs. If you have questions, please call the MU
Extension in Pulaski County office at 573-774-6177.
