Today we’re talking about saving some serious money in employee group medical benefits. Health insurance has been under close review lately thanks to Obamacare and Healthcare Reform. This has brought up some serious questions about all the legalities, but as we swim through all of the laws and paperwork, small businesses are still spending too much money on their health insurance for their employees.
For starters, get your company a health insurance broker who knows what they are doing. Here at Brauer Insurance Services we offer all kind of carrier options from Kaiser to Anthem Blue Cross, from Health Net to Blue Shield. We know the small group health insurance market very well and have the companies to prove it!
After finding yourself a broker (who is free, by the way), sit down with them and go over exactly what your health insurance plan looks like. You may not remember all of the details (that’s your broker’s job) but you will get the gist of it. Knowing your health insurance benefits can really help you because you can then see how you can save money.
The next step is to have the health insurance broker quote you some plans that are based in your area. For example, if your small business is based out of Mountain View, CA, then you are going to want quotes based on that zip code. Many times brokers will misquote because they did not use the correct zip codes. Here at Brauer Insurance Services we insure a ton of small businesses from Mountain View, CA. It’s a great city full of great people who want to do right by their employees. Employers are always happy to talk to us and get an estimate on lowering their health insurance costs.
