ALLOWS CERTAIN SOLE PROPRIETORS TO JOIN A SMALL EMPLOYER HEALTH BENEFITS PURCHASING ALLIANCE.  The bill amends the definition of “eligible group of small employers” in the purchasing alliance law to include sole proprietors who own a business located in New Jersey having no employees and who work at that business location in New Jersey. A sole proprietor must also be: engaged in the same or similar type of trade or business; a member of a common trade association, professional association, chamber of commerce or other association; or located in a common geographic area with the other members of the purchasing alliance. The bill also amends the definition of “small employer” with respect to the New Jersey Small Employer Health Benefits Program, to include businesses that employ one employee, instead of the current definition that requires at least two employees in order for a business to qualify as a small employer that is eligible to purchase health insurance through the program.
