Determine Your Needs for Your Business

You need to first be able to determine what needs your small business has for health insurance. Below, can help you get started:

    • Who Will Your Provide Coverage to at Your Business? Considerations must be made for not only the needs of your employees but also their dependents to find a plan suitable for your company’s community. Medical needs and financial needs of the group should be a part of this decision process.
    • What Percentage of Cost Sharing Can You Afford as a Business? Small business health insurance premiums are shared by both the employer and employee. You will need to determine what percentage as a business you will be willing to contribute for your employee health plans.
    • When Selecting Benefits What are Most Important for Your Employees and You?
