New Video Series Features Small Employers
Group Health has a new 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.
2014 Small Group Plans and Services (1-50 Employees)
With new requirements due to health care reform, all plans for small groups in 2014 are new. You'll find the details here that will help make it easy to find a plan similar to the one you've had in the past.
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 5 Group Health Cooperative Core plans, and 4 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
You can choose a Gold, Silver, or Bronze plan. All of the plans include the same benefits. What's different is how the costs are shared between the health plan and the member. Gold plans have higher monthly premiums and lower cost shares. Bronze plans have lower monthly premiums and higher cost shares. Silver plans are in the middle.
Optional Adult Dental Plan
Our new, optional adult dental plan is offered by Group Health Options, Inc. and is available to members and their dependents aged 19 and older. It's administered by United Concordia (UCD) and features UCD's Advantage Plus network.
Pediatric Dental Benefit
Pediatric dental coverage for children up to age 19 is automatically included when your employees enroll in a Small Business Group
plan offered by Group Health Cooperative or Group Health Options, Inc. Our pediatric dental benefits are administered by United Concordia Dental (UCD) and use the UCD Advantage Plus dental provider network. Coverage varies depending on which medical plan your employees enroll in.
The Core plan network, also known as the Group Health plan network, is offered by Group Health Cooperative. The Connect plan network, also known as the Alliant Plus plan network, is offered by Group Health Options, Inc.
