Eliminate Confusion & Frustration
The decision to offer benefits to your employees isn’t an easy one.
There’s a lot that goes into the equation.
For example, if you paid your best employee the same as a competitor, but the competitor offered a better health coverage plan, the chances of that employee leaving are high.
In the current business environment, many great employees take jobs just for group health insurance. Especially, if that employee has a family.
There’s no question, it’s important to offer health care if you want to attract top talent.
But at what cost?
Health coverage isn’t cheap. And no signs are pointing to costs slowing down.
Are you receiving the best for your employees and your business? Are you balancing that fine line between saving costs on your end while still providing a benefit for your employees?
The business health insurance professionals at Weiss Insurance Agencies will procure several plans for you. From deductibles to the physician network to coverages offered, we will help you sort out the programs that work best for your situation.
Types Of Group Health Insurance for Businesses
When it comes to commercial health care coverage, there’s no shortage of options. Here’s just a small sample of the type of options we can help your business put into place:
HMO Plans: An HMO, Health Maintenance Organization, is a specific type of health care plan that sets out guidelines under which doctors can operate. On average, health care coverage through the use of an HMO costs less than comparable traditional coverage.
Major Medical: Provides benefits for most types of medical expenses that may be incurred. Offering more complete coverage with fewer gaps, major medical insurance covers a much broader range of medical expenses – including those incurred both in and out of the hospital – with generally higher individual benefits and policy maximum limits.
HSAs: A HSA, or Health Savings Account, is a specific type of group health insurance that offers users tax advantages. In order for you to offer a HSA to your employees, you must have a high-deductible health plan. The advantage to an HSA for employees is they’re able to pay for certain medical expenses out of the HSA tax-free. For the employer, HSA plans are less costly.
HRAs: A HRA, or Health Reimbursement Account, is an employer funded, tax advantaged plan which allows the employer to reimburse certain medical expenses.
