Our Affordable Premium Program allows small businesses who qualify the opportunity to offer an attractive employee benefit package that would otherwise not be possible or available to them as a small group.
Through our new Premium Program model, TexHealth reimburses one-third of the employee premium up to $110 per month. After the employer contribution, this can amount to a significant savings to the employee of 50% or more.
Employers can choose from any group plan option and/or carrier they wish, or they can also shop on the Exchange for a plan that fits their needs. Some small businesses may also be eligibile for more savings through a tax credit available only through SHOP. See below for a detailed overview of our Affordable Premium Program.
