Group Health Insurance

As of January 2016, New York has adopted a new definition of Small and Large Employers for the purposes of purchasing group health insurance.

Small Group Health Plans in New York  (1-99 full-time equivalent employees) Premium rates are community rated.  

Large Group Health Plans in New York (100 or more fulltime equivalent employees) Premium rates are based on the demographics of the employees, claims experience (if available), nature of business and in some instances the prescription drug history of the members. 

We are pleased to represent the following carriers in the NY Small Group Market serving employers with 1-100 full-time equivalent employees

New York businesses will have two more group health insurance carriers to choice from beginning April 1, 2017.

NYC's 3rd largest insurer is entering the small group market with 8 new EPO options to choice from.  Plans include Telemedicine and No-Cost Flu vaccines.

The plans and perks that OSCAR individual members already love are now available for small business. Plus, they've added many new features for modern companies and their employees. It’s currently available in NY, with expansion to more markets planned soon.
