Large Group Health Insurance Plan

The insurance marketplace is large. Many insurance companies are competing for customers since the pool is finite. With new health insurance coverage being mandated, whether it is individual health insurance, family health insurance, or group health insurance, established insurance providers know they need customers to remain in business.

As a result, providers are offering cheap plans through the state and federal exchanges, and then ultimately either withdrawing from the exchanges when they can no longer feasibly support their plans, or raising premiums. The Affordable Care Act was great in theory. Its execution, as always, is more complex.

Rather than using an established insurance provider, consider seeking a large group health insurance plan from an independent agency like Taylor Benefits Insurance.



How Many People Will My Plan Cover?

There is no legal maximum number of group members when it comes to large group health insurance plans. Whether you run a local business, or you run a Fortune 500 firm, you can find group insurance that will cover your employees.

However, the minimum number of group members required to be considered for large group health insurance, on average, is 50 people or more. When choosing large group health insurance plans, keep in mind that you should look for insurance providers and independent agencies that specialize in large group insurance.


The Benefits of Large Group Health Insurance & Employee Benefit Plans

Large group plans will affect every aspect of health care coverage, from subsidies, to out of pocket payments, a pre existing condition or illness, to preventive care of the insured. All this and more will be determined based on the size of your group.

A correlation does exist between the availability of health plan benefits and the employee take-up rate, as it refers to group size. The larger the group, the more likely an employee is to enroll in a group plan offered by their workplace.

The more people eligible, who enroll in a open enrollment group health coverage or employee benefit plan, the more financially feasible the plan becomes so the cost of your insurance program will be much lower. This means that large group health insurance plans are better able to provide for the following, when compared to smaller group and individual plans.


  • Preexisting conditions
  • Deductibles
  • Coinsurance
  • employer sponsored (funded) Medicare / Medicaid enrollment
  • Dental plans / Dental coverage
  • Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)
  • Vision insurance and vision care
  • Drug coverage
  • Co-pay
  • Comprehensive health insurance
  • Major medical expenses
  • Out of pocket expenses
  • Wellness programs
  • And more.


Typical Health Care Coverage

Typical health care coverage varies, even when it comes to large group health insurance plans. Most plans will cover the basics, like life insurance and disability coverage, and then provide more coverage depending on the group’s needs.

Affordable health insurance plans that also cover all the health benefits and coverage that groups want is a complex process to follow. This is why independent insurance agencies are most capable of providing you with the plan you need, since they can offer you large group health insurance plans you will not find anywhere else.


Essential Health Benefits

Due to the passage of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act (ACA), you can receive essential health benefits in your group health insurance plans. These are benefits which are required to be included for plans offered through the state and federal health care exchanges.

These benefits include:


  • Inpatient and outpatient hospital care for insurer
  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Mental health services
  • Hospitalization
  • Emergency services
  • Low deductible
  • Prescription drugs


Next Steps

Decide whether a large group health insurance plan is right for you. If you have no need for extended coverage, and the essential health benefits required under Obamacare are enough, you may decide to go with a smaller plan. However, if you want broader and more comprehensive health care coverage, consider contacting an independent agency that specializes in the large group health insurance marketplace.
