Park City, UT (PRWEB) March 30, 2014
Today, Zane Benefits, the #1 Online Health Benefits Solution, published new information on employer paid healthcare for small businesses.
According to Zane Benefits’ website, employer paid healthcare (aka employer-sponsored health insurance or group health insurance) is health insurance that is paid for by an employer on behalf of their employees. It is usually the foundation of an employee benefits package.
The employer selects a plan (or plans), and typically makes a substantial contribution towards the cost of the premium. In 2013, employers paid 82% of the insurance premium for their employees, and about 71% of the premium for their employees' dependents.
Zane Benefits’ website says that while nearly all large employers in the U.S. (with 200+ employees) offer group health insurance to their employees, small businesses have struggled to keep up with the increasing costs of coverage.
