How does group health insurance for small business work?
New to group health insurance? Here is a quick bullet list of the key aspects of group health insurance for small businesses in Arizona:
You’re business needs between 1-50 employees to qualify
Your business must pay part of the employee’s insurance premiums
There are no enrollment time restrictions so you can apply any time of year.
What about larger businesses?
For the medium-sized and large-sized businesses, 50 is the magic number. Larger businesses with over 50 full-time employees must offer health insurance to their employees.
As an Arizona employer with over 50 employees, from 2015 onward, you have a responsibility according to the Affordable Care Act to provide health insurance to your full-time employees.
Even if your employees choose to pursue their own health insurance outside of work, you are still required to offer a company plan.

Offering group health can be a great perk for your employees
Small businesses with less than 50 full-time employees do not have to offer health insurance to employees. But, if finding and keeping great employees is important to your business, then you may want to consider offering a health insurance option.
Many Arizona small business employers are surprised to learn they can receive tax credits when they offer health insurance coverage to their employees.
Offering group health insurance may be cheaper than you think
Small businesses with 50 or fewer employees where the average annual wages of each employee is less than $50,000 may be eligible for a federal tax credit of up to 50% of the amount the employer contributes (at least 50%) toward employee insurance premiums.
That means money back in your pocket.
