Employer programs update

Small employers
- Oregon group health plan rates have decreased with some carriers for 2015.
Read more.  Providence is looking good for small employer health plans.  Health Net is still good for Essential Copay PPO options.  Health Republic has PCP plans with Providence Network and customers like it.  Oregon's Health CO-OP offers CO-Pay only plans.  A typical group plan for the new year should include a basic base contributory medical plan, buy-up options for those who need or want more coverage, some tax advantages and incentives, Federal Exchange may offer Small Health Options Plan (SHOP) by 2016?  This is expected to be a web based employer enrollment tool.  The small employer health insurance tax credit seems to be working form some employers.  There may be a limit on the number of years you may have the tax credit after 2015.  The 125b pre-tax program is working well for the savings it provides.  There has been some increased interest in group dental, life insurance, and disability packages.  

Large Employers - The employer responsibility provision of the Affordable Care Act will begin starting 2015 and 2016.  Market sizes will be adjusted and there will be some disruption in rates again.  Some smaller employer groups may benefit from the new markets.  it is expected that there will be nor more negotiations with health plans for employers under 100 starting in 2016.  The results of the large employer mandate on other markets will not be known until about 2017-2018.
