Healthplansny.com introduces Mini Med plans for New Jersey and Connecticut Small business owners.
HealthplansNY, a New York based group benefits provider, has partnered with a major insurance firm to offer low cost solutions to employees that cannot afford group health insurance coverage from their employer.
“We’re excited to add Mini Med Plans to our product line says Jay Gerlitz, a partner at http://www.healthplansny.com We have several restaurants that we currently insure with major medical plans but in many instances the waiters and waitresses are ineligible due to their part-time status. In addition to being part-time or seasonal, many of these employees that earn minimum wage simply can not afford the monthly cost of a major medical plan.”
A Mini Med plan is basically a limited health insurance plan that will cover Doctor’s visits, hospitalization and even prescriptions up to a specified amount in relation to the plan designs chosen by the employee. Depending on the plan design, weekly premiums can be as low as $20.00 per employee. The employer can pay all or part of the premium or leave it up to the employee to pay for their own coverage. There are over 15 different plan designs that can be chosen from. In addition, ancillary benefits such as dental, vision and short term disability can be added for an additional cost.
Mini Med plans are available in most States with the exception of New York. “Right now, we only have plans available for our New Jersey and Connecticut clients. We are waiting for these plans to be approved in New York but we don’t see that approval coming in the near future,” says Bill Behr a Partner at http://www.healthplansny.com.
Mini plans can offer relief from the high cost of health insurance to employers that are cutting back on benefits due to increasing healthcare costs.
