Why is small business health insurance in Oklahoma a great opportunity?
Recent eHealth studies have found yet again that group health insurance plans tend to be more affordable per individual. This means you would be providing your employees with health benefits that are likely cheaper than what they’d find on the individual market.
While cheaper premiums are a huge advantage for employees, Oklahoma small business employers may also find that group health plans also benefit them in several ways:
- Opportunity to qualify for the small business tax credit
- Better chance for employee retention and hiring
- Happier employees and healthier work environment
Although there is no guarantee that getting small business health insurance in Oklahoma will help you hire and retain better employees, and foster a positive work environment, studies have shown that employees value health benefits even more than raises. By offering your employees the support and benefits that lead to healthier more secure lives, you are showing them their worth. It’s possible that this action, in turn, will benefit your small Oklahoma business as a whole. And if that’s not enough of a reason to offer health insurance, you’ll be happy to find that you could save by qualifying for the small business tax credit.
