Small business owners are the lifeblood of the Minnesota economy. They are hard-working, durable visionaries who are dedicated to the well-being of their employees, and determined to persevere should they face roadblocks.
You know well how challenging it can be to provide health insurance for your employees, or even for yourself. You want to be on par with your competition but escalating health insurance costs make that difficult.
MNsure will offer a new marketplace for small employers. The marketplace will offer easy-to-administer health coverage for all types of businesses. You could save up to 7.5 % off premium costs through tax credits. (Use the calculator to see if you qualify.)
Starting in October 2013, you can choose from a range of quality plans or contribute a set amount toward your employees’ coverage and let the employee pick a plan that’s right for them. You can set up an account on your own or work with a trusted agent/broker who can manage the process for you.
Additional benefits include:
In the end, providing health insurance for your employees means a happier, healthier, loyal workforce—a move that benefits us all.
MNsure will serve employers with 50 or fewer employees beginning in 2014.
