What is considered group health insurance?

Group health insurance provides health insurance to a select group. As a business, that usually means your full-time employees or employees that meet your benefit eligibility requirements. Group health is one of the main benefits employees look at when considering employment, so it’s a good idea to make sure your plan offers enough benefits and options to attract and retain good employees. You also want it to come at a good price so you can help cover the cost of premiums or keep cost-sharing minimal.

I own a small business. Do I shop the marketplace?

Businesses with 1-50 employees are eligible to purchase a plan on SHOP (Small Business Health Options Program).  However, for 2018, you’ll need to use an insurance agent like Briargate to find and purchase your plan.
