Group Health Plans
that fit you
Fully Insured Plans
The most common form of group insurance. These plans are used by small and large groups alike. While there are many plans to choose from, the plans are pre-designed by the insurance carriers.
Level-funded plans allow groups the benefits of fully insured plans, but the initial premium is based on a risk assessment. This means that healthier groups have the opportunity for a lower premium.
These plans allow both the greatest plan design flexibility and insight into claims data. These plans are often used by large groups where the company pays the health claims. Often a Third-Party Administrator is used to process claims and perform other administrative tasks. Most groups also purchase stop loss coverage to mitigate risk.
Southern Plains Insurance Group will give your small business the individual attention it takes to help you find group health insurance that meets your company’s needs with access to all major carriers available in your location. Southern Plains has committed to offering the same level of care, strategic planning, and service to small groups as we do to large groups. Whether you have 2 employees or 200, you’ll get top-notch customer service and the information you need to make the best decision.

Group Health Insurance for Small Businesses (1-50 FT & FTE)
Are Small Business Owners Required to Provide Health Insurance to Their Employees?
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) defines a small business as one with less than 50 full-time and/or full-time equivalent (FTE) employees. These companies are not required to offer group health insurance to their employees.
However, employers with 50+ full-time or full-time equivalent employees are required to offer affordable group health insurance. The policies must include essential benefits to avoid paying a penalty.
Deciding what to offer in your employee benefits program is a big decision. If you’re considering offering health insurance, Southern Plains Insurance Group will present you with affordable options that have the coverage your employees need.
