Washington Group Health Insurance
Washington Group Health Insurance is for businesses with 2 or more employees, which can include the owner of the business.
Group health insurance is regulated by both the state and federal government. The HIPAA act of 1997 determines eligibility in some cases and provides rules for individuals leaving a group plan. The group plans usually have more benefits than an individual plan because of federal requirements established by ERISA and HIPAA laws.
As long as an employer meets the criteria required by the
Washington Health Insurance Company, they cannot be turned down for insurance nor can any of the employees be turned down.
Insurance companies can impose a pre-existing medical condition waiting period if the employee was without insurance for more than 63 days prior to enrolling or if the employee did not have insurance for an 18 month period prior to enrolling.
Individual Health Insurance
When an insurance carrier advertises that they have group like benefits, you should be very wary of the person presenting the plan.
Every plan may have some group like benefits such as doctor co-pays, however, individual plans seldom offer the benefits of a group plan. There are some important questions you should ask when purchasing
Washington Health Insurance for yourself, family or as a self employed individual.
