Video Series Features Small Employers
Group Health has a video series for employers who want to better understand the value of offering a health plan. In this series, you'll hear directly from small employers like you, and their employees.
1. Determine Whether You Will Offer 1 or 2 Plans
For groups with 10–50 employees, any 2 of our plans can be combined, including 6 Group Health Cooperative Core plans, and 3 Group Health Options, Inc. Connect plans.
Groups with 10–24 employees must have at least 3 employees enrolled in each plan. Groups with 25–50 employees must have at least 5 employees enrolled in each plan.
2. Decide Which Provider Network to Offer
3. Choose Your Coverage Level
All of our small group plans include the same benefits. What's different are the monthly premiums versus the member's cost shares. As premium costs go up for different metal levels, cost shares go down, so it's important to consider how much your employees tend to use health care services in deciding what plan or plans to offer.
In addition to overall plan differences between metal levels, we're offering Core Plus plans at the Silver, Gold, and Platinum levels in which the deductible does not apply to the first three office visits per calendar year—either primary care or specialty care. Similarly, the deductible does not apply to the first three in-network primary care office visits per calendar year in the Connect3 Silver and Connect3 Gold plans.
