The Affordable Care Act made far-reaching changes to the rules around employer-sponsored health insurance. Large businesses must offer health insurance for their workers, or they can face penalties. In addition, the ACA requires that every plan must be affordable (defined as costing the employee no more than 9.6 percent of their gross income for individual coverage) and provide ten essential minimum benefits:
Other portions of the law eliminate lifetime benefit caps and allow adult children to stay covered by a parent’s policy until they reach age 26. Another fundamental change to previous practice was the prohibition of “previous condition” exclusions which often kept people from getting coverage.
Small companies—with less than fifty employees– are exempt from the health insurance requirements promulgated by the ACA. However, they may find that they must offer high-quality benefits to attract talented workers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that almost half of small businesses provide insurance for their employees, and many pay part of the cost. These small companies can find help researching, comparing, and administering their insurance plans using resources and support from SHOP (Small Business Healthcare Options Program), which the Affordable Care Act created.
A comprehensive benefits package may have several diverse components designed to appeal to different segments of the company’s workforce. For example, most employees want health insurance and paid time off. While large companies must offer health insurance, about half of small firms provide it voluntarily. In California, employers must give their workers at least three paid sick days annually. Many give other paid time off for holidays and vacation, but it’s not required.
Beyond those perks, the top requests for benefits are less consistent. For example, many workers value a retirement savings plan, but these are much less available than health insurance. Since Palmdale is in California, employers must enable workers to contribute to the CalSavers IRA through payroll deductions if the company doesn’t have a separate retirement plan.
Other widespread benefits include:
Even if basic health insurance and benefit plans don’t cover everything you’d like in a plan for your employees, tell us what is missing and we will get it included. Our negotiating skills allow us to get everything you need wrapped into one inclusive package at a low cost to your business.
