Group Health Insurance is a plan offered through employers, unions, and professional associations, among others. This plan has a great advantage over Individual Health Insurance plans: as an employee, you only pay for a part of the plan’s cost, and your employer absorbs the other part. Since you are a part of a bigger policy, it’s important to understand the terms and to know what do you get as part of this group. Premium costs might be lower for a larger group of people, but what these entitle might not be everything you expect, too. It’s important to understand the details of the policy being offered, such as co-pays and deductibles.
If you are an employer looking to offer your employees Group Health Insurance, make sure to know what you are seeking to offer your employers. Try and find information about the underwriting guidelines groups are subjected to. These are regulated by the stated in which the policies are written.
