How much will group health insurance cost?

There will be a number of different criteria that will determine the cost of your plan, including:

  • Age of your employees
  • Size of your company
  • Location of your company

Now that the Affordable Care Act is in effect, pre-existing health conditions of your employees will not impact insurance rates.

What business qualifies for group health insurance?

Businesses may become eligible for a group health insurance plan if they meet these standards:

  • The business has a minimum of two full-time owners, partners, and/or employees. A tax statement will be needed to confirm this.
  • The business is legitimate, which can be verified by a license, articles of incorporation, or articles of organization (LLC).
  • The business contributes the minimum percentage as stated by the insurance provider.

These criteria may change with providers and states, so make sure to check the specific standards of your chosen insurance company.
