Employer programs update 2016
Small employers - Small employers have between 1 and 50 employees. Oregon group health plan rates have decreased with some carriers for 2016. A typical group plan may include a basic base contributory bronze medical plan, buy-up options for those who need or want more coverage, some tax advantages and incentives for eligible employers.
The federal Small Health Options Plan (SHOP); this program is not expected to be available until later in 2016 for Oregon employers. SHOP is a web based health insurance solution for small employers. The small employer health insurance tax credit seems to still be working form some employers. Oregon employers who want a tax credit will need to have a qualified carrier and product and then request the plan certification from the carrier or Oregon Health Insurance Exchange for your tax advisor. The small employer health insurance tax credit is expected to have a 24 month maximum. We have small employer activity in the Washington Healthplanfinder.
Large Employers - Large employers have more than 50 employees. The employer responsibility provision of the Affordable Care Act will begin starting 2015 and 2016. We have seen 0%-5% rate increases for large employers. Employers with 100 or more employees are required to offer a basic bronze level health plan now to employees. Employers with 50 to 99 employees will soon have to provide basic health insurance to employees or pay a penalty to the government.
