How do subsidies work for small businesses?

Small businesses that qualify may benefit from subsidies in the form of a tax credit. To qualify, a small business must contribute at least 50% of each employee’s insurance premium, pay an average annual wage of less than $50,000, and have fewer than 25 full-time-equivalent (FTE) employees. Consult your tax professional for specific information regarding the tax credit.

Can I decide how much to pay?

Employers are not required to contribute but can decide a fixed amount to contribute to your employees’ health insurance so your costs always remain constant. Make just one monthly payment. Even if your employees choose plans from multiple companies, you get only one simple bill. We take care of paying the carriers, so you can focus on business.
