Park City, UT (PRWEB) March 18, 2014
Today, Zane Benefits, the #1 Online Health Benefits Solution, published new information on ways small businesses help with employee paid health insurance.
According to Zane Benefits’ website, Small businesses and startups want to offer health insurance, but often struggle to afford traditional group health insurance. In fact, cost is the number one reason why more than 50% of small businesses do not offer traditional health insurance. One solution for small business owners is to set up a program that helps with the cost of employee paid health insurance.
Zane Benefits’ website also says that employee paid health insurance is a term used for health insurance that employees purchase on their own, just as they would car insurance.
For example, employees purchase an individual or family health insurance policy (also called a personal health insurance policy) through a broker, the new state Health Insurance Marketplaces, or online.
Individual health insurance policies are, on average, less expensive than group health insurance and are purchased and owned by the employee. Eligible employees can access the federal health insurance tax credits which provide significant cost savings on premiums. And, as of 2014, employees cannot be denied individual health insurance coverage because of a pre-existing health condition.
