Hello guys

My partner and I are starting new business Wood & Furniture industries. I have some 10-15 employees currently. I want my my company get health insurance too. I am little confused about getting insurance for each employee or company as a whole. I dont have too much budget for those but what I like to ask is it true that I can get some group insurance in lesser than individual ones.

I am sorry if I am unable to put my question correctly..,

Thanks for your time

Post Health Insurance

You should speak to a Health Insurance Professional about Group Health Medical. The minimum number of employees to start a group plan is two.

Consider an employer contribution to the employee's health plan. My company is a small business of 7 employees. We offer $100 a month in contributions to each employee health plan.

The employees have a choice in most cases for deductible or co-pay plan. Choices for PPO or HMOs are also available.

PM me if you need more direction.

Group health plans can be established where all the costs are borne by the employees. There are no administrative charges, etc.

Almost all employers and employees share the premium cost of group health insurance. The monthly premium payments are often partitioned in half or the employees may pay a higher percentage than the employer but it will depend on the agreement.

Health insurance is really important for businesses especially for business owners as this type of insurance covers the medical treatment of employees in case of injury or accident. Health insurance can also cover other health benefits.

There are so many types of business insurance types. I would like to recommend you to go for group insurance for your business.

In group health insurance plans costs are shared between the employer and the employee, and coverage may also be extended to dependents.
