Under the Affordable Care Act, most companies over 25 employees will be required to offer health insurance to all eligible employees. This act does not require companies to offer insurance to an employee’s spouse and/or dependents, but this coverage can often be an attractive benefit to your existing and prospective employees. Also, under the Affordable Care Act, any plan that does offer dependent coverage must do so for that dependent until the age of 26.
Major Medical plans, often known as Catastrophic plans, are the most affordable type of health insurance plans. These plans come with lower premium costs, and often have coinsurance options. Typically, these plans will range from 60/40 to 80/20 splits, where, once the deductible is met, the insurance company will pay 60-80% of the cost of the medical care, and the insured will cover the remaining 20-40%, until the yearly out of pocket maximum is reached. After that, the insurance company will cover the medical care at 100%.
Comprehensive Medical plans typically cover medical expenses without co-insurance options, but rather co-pays that vary based on the services received. Office visits, for example, are often less than visits to urgent care or the hospital. These plans often come with a higher premium both to the company and the one insured.
Many Americans receive medical insurance through their employer’s group insurance policy. For employees, this is the most cost effective way to receive medical insurance. For companies, this is often a major benefit that you can offer your employees.
If your business has more than 25 employees, the Affordable Care Act will require that you offer insurance to your employees.
Offering Health Insurance is a benefit that top talent looks for when choosing where to work. Offering a Health Insurance benefit can help you hire and retain the best and the brightest in the workforce and offering a family plan option often puts your company ahead of others in the industry.
Health Insurance premiums paid by the employer are considered normal business expenses for income tax purposes. This should be a consideration for every company.
