Since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), group health insurance plans are required to meet established standards for essential benefits. If the program doesn’t provide all the components, the employer offering the coverage can be found non-compliant with ACA rules. The ten essential minimum benefits that a large group health plan must cover are these:
One of the mandatory covered services is preventive and wellness services, including chronic disease management. That means insurers must include preventive services without any cost to the patient. Preventive care includes vaccines, cancer screenings, and testing for other illnesses and conditions like high blood pressure and cholesterol. Some large employers are going further, offering additional screenings plus information about disease avoidance and management. Many add incentives and support for health-conscious activities like exercise, smoking cessation, and stress reduction. Incentives can be as simple as offering employees a step counter (exercise monitor) when they sign up to participate.
Oregon’s marketplace for small businesses offers helpful resources for companies that want to provide healthcare insurance for their workers. Companies can learn about the options for coverage, pricing, and how to access information about tax credits. Taylor Benefits Insurance can help your company navigate the regulations and be sure that you locate the support that’s available for you. Small companies must meet these criteria to be eligible for the administrative support tax credit:
Oregon requires employers to provide up to forty hours of sick leave for their workers annually. Employees accrue time at the rate of at least one hour earned for every thirty hours worked. For companies with at least ten employees, sick leave must be paid time off. No other paid time off is required, but Oregon workers are entitled to an unpaid family leave of up to twelve weeks.
Oregon has a retirement savings program that companies must register for if they do not offer a retirement plan on their own. OregonSaves does not require the company to make any contributions, but it must administer employee deposits.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA), often referred to simply as Obamacare, was revolutionary when implemented. It allowed uninsured people all over the country to afford insurance. Of course, the ACA also greatly affected the way insurance was provided in the workplace. Oregon companies were especially affected by the changes.
Many businesses were forced to restructure their insurance plans entirely, which was a costly endeavor. Taylor Benefits Insurance can help review your policies, offering suggestions or alternatives to ensure you stay in compliance with the ACA while also watching your budget. We are constantly offering updated packages to positively influence your bottom line while providing the most comprehensive coverage to your employees.

Health insurance provides financial security for employees since they can obtain the medical services they need without worrying about the cost. Oregon requires residents to have individual or employer-based coverage unless they have a verified exemption. Here are some of the frequently asked questions about health insurance in Oregon:
Large group plans in Oregon are available for any company or other organization with more than fifty members/employees. Since the insurer can spread the risk over a larger number of people, a large group policy is often available with a lower per-person premium.
Small group coverage can be effective for companies with even one employee, or as many as fifty. In most cases, small group coverage is more affordable than individual policies.
In Oregon, employees have access to a variety of benefits. The employer decides what to incorporate into the package, but the list may include any of the following:
While employers decide what to include, many try to incorporate benefits that will match their workers’ needs.
Employers and employees usually share the costs of insurance. In Oregon, employers contribute an average of 84 percent of the premium cost for individual coverage. Some also subsidize the cost for dependents.
