According to the Indiana 2008 Legislative Agenda, -Access to affordable health care continues to be one of the biggest concerns for small businesses in Indiana. Of the 42 million people uninsured, more than 61 percent are either small-business owners or employees of small businesses.-
Legislators are considering a number of options to help ease the insurance burden. But until these or other money-saving options are enacted, small business owners still need to find inexpensive health insurance.
Lowering Your Costs
There are ways small business owners can reduce health insurance costs. For example, you could choose a PPO or HMO instead of a Fee for Service plan. While Fee for Service plans offer more choice and flexibility, they also cost more.
Another option is to consider a high deductible insurance plan coupled with a health savings account. You will have to pay out of pocket for all your medical costs until you reach the deductible. However, you can reimburse yourself – tax-free – with funds from the health savings account.
Get Quotes from Multiple Companies
No matter what kind of plan you decide to buy, the best way to get the best rates is to comparison shop. You can quickly and easily get quotes from multiple A-rated insurance companies by going to an insurance comparison website.
