1. Determine whether you’ll offer multiple plans

Groups of 1 to 5 employees can offer up to 4 plans. You can offer any combination of Core, Connect, Access PPO, and Elect PPO plans. 

Groups with 6 to 50 employees can offer any number of plans. You can offer any combination of Core, Connect, Access PPO, and Elect PPO plans. Offering up to 4 plans may be ideal for groups of this size. 

For a plan to be available to new group members during the contract year, a group must have at least 1 employee enrolled in the plan when offered at the time of a new group setup or at renewal. Federal regulations require that groups must have at least one common law employee enrolled to offer coverage. That means there must be at least one employee on the payroll who is not the owner or spouse of the owner.
