You want to attract & retain employees. Plus, lower the cost of premiums.
Some of the perks? Employers pay lower payroll taxes and can deduct their annual contributions when calculating income taxes. Premiums get paid with pretax dollars, which helps employees pay less in taxes. Group health insurance plans offer better medical coverage, wider networks and keep your employees and their families healthier. Plus, there are options to include supplemental health plans— like Dental, Vision, and Worksite—separately or as a bundle.
A group health insurance plan helps you and your employees pay for health care expenses, and Texas businesses with 2 or more employees are eligible to purchase group health insurance. Not only are plans designed to be more cost-effective for DFW companies, but employee premiums are also typically less expensive and more comprehensive than buying individually. Worried about how much it will cost you as the owner? You get to decide your contribution level, starting with a minimum of 50%.
How To Prepare
Complete an employee census.
Insurers use an "employee census" to create your group health quote.
• Employee (Plus, any dependents) names
• Type of Coverage (i.e., Employee only or w/dependents)
• Date of Birth(s)
We'll need your company's legal name (not DBA), zip code and let us know the nature or type of your business. If you already know your SIC code great! If not, you can look it up here or we'll do it for you.
Provide your company information.
Bundling provides additional savings. Let us know if you are interested in other types of coverage to include in the quote for your employees, such as Dental, Vision, Life, or Disability. These benefits are available as either Voluntary or Employer-Subsidized contributions (% of premium). Or consider worksite benefits like Aflac or Colonial) which provides individual or group coverage without cost to the employer through payroll deduction. We also offer 401K and retirement solutions.
Let us know about your other needs.
