Introducing Employers Advantage:
A Self-Funded Group Medical Program, Designed for CAM Members

We are pleased to announce the introduction of a new Small Group Self-Funded Medical Program for members of the Construction Association of Michigan (CAM). This program is for groups of five or more enrolled employee lives, and is medically underwritten at CAM Administrative Services, Inc.  Employers Advantage is an outstanding alternative in today's marketplace. This program allows small employers plan design flexibility along with potential cost savings, while maintaining an attractive option for their employees. Employers Advantage features level funding and aggregate only stop loss coverage. Level funding consists of a predetermined portion of the claims along with excess loss insurance premium and administrative costs on a monthly basis. When eligible claims exceed the employer's claims funding, funds are released by the excess loss carrier to the employer’s claim fund to reimburse claims.

CAM Government Affairs Committee Urges CAM Members to Vote YES on Proposal 1 - Elimination of the Personal Property Tax

When Michigan holds its Primary Election on August 5th, voters will have the option to approve or reject "Proposal 1".  CAM recommends a "YES" vote on this proposal.


Proposal 1 is the result of legislation passed by the Michigan Legislature (PA 80 of 2014) and requires the approval of Michigan voters for its enactment.  Proposal 1 is the final step needed to eliminate the Personal Property Tax (PPT) in Michigan and at the same time to replace needed funding to local communities in our state.


The "Personal Property Tax" places a tax on businesses when they purchase equipment and continues to tax that equipment every year.  Passage of Proposal 1 will complete the elimination of this tax while fully replacing the lost dollars to local municipalities.  This will be done by shifting revenue from expiring business tax credits and dedicating a portion of the state Use Tax to those communities.


CAM believes Proposal 1 will strike a responsible balance between the sound policies of creating a more business-friendly environment in Michigan and protecting vital public services that our citizens value, without increasing the tax burden on individuals of this state.  Therefore, CAM supports Proposal 1 and recommends its members vote "YES."
