This is just one reason why it’s important to revisit your coverage, so that you’re not missing out on more savings, more health benefits, and better services. eHealth is a great place to begin if you’ve been thinking about looking for a new group health plan, for other reasons, including:

  • Your business has begun making more money, and you’re considering a plan with more benefits
  • You have more or less employees, and want to see if there’s a plan that fits your business size better
  • You need to cut down on costs, and want to see what more affordable plans are out there

Will I spend more money by using eHealth to get a group health plan?

The simple answer to this will always be, no. eHealth does not add broker fees regardless of how much help and services we provide to you. Our online services and tools come at no extra charge to you, and the plans that we offer on our site will never cost more than they do anywhere else (by law, the price of a health insurance plan, must be the same no matter where you buy it).

Many small business owners may find that they spend less money when buying group plans with eHealth, because we put time and effort into each client in order to find the right plan to fit the needs of their small business.

Can I buy my group health insurance plan directly on eHealth?

Not only will eHealth take care of finding you the right plan, but we make enrolling easy as well. We’ve broken the enrollment process down step-by-step for you, and clearly outline the paperwork that you’ll need to provide. We’ll deal with managing the process with the health insurance company too, so that you don’t have to visit any other sites than ours.

With our streamlined enrollment process, you’ll be covered with your small business health insurance plan in absolutely no time.

Will I miss out on the small business tax credit by going through eHealth?

If you’ve heard about the small business health care tax credit, you’re probably going to want to make sure that you check out whether or not you qualify for it. Luckily, you can do this even if you’re shopping with eHealth, and not the Small Business Health Option Program (SHOP). You won’t even have to go to their website in order to see whether or not you qualify for this small business tax credit. But if you don’t qualify, you have the benefit of being on eHealth and having access to both government SHOP plans, and private small business health insurance plans. This wider variety of plan options could help you save money. For example, some small businesses may have lower budgets and need to purchase a group health plan with less benefits but lower prices–and you’ll have access to that kind of variety when shopping on eHealth for small business health insurance.
