With all the talk of large corporations and their employment, most people are surprised to find the average company size in California is overwhelmingly between two and five people.
The so-called "mom and pop" business is more the norm and this allows for important considerations when choosing California health insurance for a family business.
The first real question to ask is whether you should look at Individual Family health coverage or a Small Group insurance plan.
There are pro's and con's to both.
First, the ACA law has impacted this consideration.
For a true family business, this rule may force individual family coverage.
Now with the new ACA law, the big difference is the network of providers available to you.
Small Group California health insurance is useful in a few different situations.
There requirements to qualify for Group coverage but the three main ones are:
These are the main stumbling blocks for small
or new companies looking to purchase California
Small Group health insurance.
Secondly, if you plan to offer health benefits to current or future employees, you want to do so with a group plan and not individual plans.
There can be liability in a company paying for individual insurance plans and the State frowns on such practices. If the coverage is really just for your family, this becomes less of an issue.
Try to go with the lowest cost, comprehensive plan.
You are buying coverage for yourself so the premium savings with such a plan will usually outweigh higher deductibles, etc. If you are offering employees coverage, this may not work as well. Employees view health plans as a fringe type of benefit.
If you offer high deductible plans, it may not be well received depending on the type of industry you are in. If your employees are frustrated with their out-of-pocket expenses with such a plan, you are paying for a benefit with no tangible benefit to retaining or attracting good employees.
The big difference is that purchasing health insurance benefits for employees is viewed as "carrot" as opposed to health insurance for you and your family.
Employee Elect with Anthem Blue Cross has allowed the best of both worlds in that they employer determine a fixed contribution (either dollar amount or percentage of a given plan) and then allows the employees to pick and choose from any of the plans. The employee would pay the difference for a richer plan but this allows each employees to pick a plan that meets his/her needs.
This also works for family only plans where each spouse might have different needs or requirements.
