"Honestly, having the level of service that we get from all of you is a HUGE HELP to our small team! When other brokers call me (all. the. time!!) I talk to them about the service that we get from Hummel and how grateful we are for this relationship. Thank you for all that you do for us! (And the fact that you are all great people who are easy to work with is just icing on the cake – we are so blessed.)" - Jennifer L. Harley, SHRM-SCP - Director of Human Resources - Christian Children’s Home of Ohio


"I knew there was a reason we switched over to Hummel Group! They negotiated our renewal increase down from 16.5% to 5%, saving us and our employees not only a great deal of money, but also the hassle of switching to a new provider. We very much appreciate Hummel's effort on our benefits plan. Their team has really made a difference for our employees and we would recommend them to anyone." - Shayne Glass - CPA Controller - Shrock Premiere Custom Construction

When can I offer group health insurance to my employees?

Employers can start a new health insurance plan at any point throughout the year. 

Is there a minimum number of employees required before offering health coverage?

The minimum number of employees is typically two for a group plan but, certain carriers have group options that allow down to one. Each carrier views this a bit differently and has its own set of stipulations. Hummel Group will look at your individual situation and determine what options are available to you.

What qualifies as an “eligible” employee?

Generally speaking, an employee must be full-time (minimum of 30 hours per week) to be eligible for health insurance and receive a W-2 tax document.

Does a 1099 employee count as an eligible employee?

1099 employees can be considered on a case-by-case basis.

My company has less than 50 employees, will I incur a penalty or fee if I don’t offer health insurance?

Employers with less than 50 full-time equivalents are not required to offer health insurance so, there is no penalty.

What is the average cost of health insurance for a business with 1-50 employees?

This varies widely and depends on several factors that are unique to you and your business.   Give us a call if you would like to discuss your benefits strategy or see quotes for your employer-sponsored plan.
